Falco moves to Incubation

Falco, which entered the CNCF Sandbox in October 2018, is an open source Kubernetes runtime security project. It provides intrusion and abnormality detection for cloud native platforms such as Kubernetes, Mesosphere, and Cloud Foundry. 

Given the opaque nature of containers, organizations require deeper insight into container activities. The Falco project was created by Sysdig to better understand container behavior, and to share these insights with organizations, allowing them to protect their container platforms from possible malicious activity.

Certified Kubernetes Application Developer (CKAD) Certification is Now Valid for 3 Years

To match other CNCF and Linux Foundation certifications, the CKAD is extending the expiration date of the earned certification from 24 months to 36 months! That means that if you met the Program Certification requirements, your certification will remain valid for 36 months rather than the original 24 months. 

The Certified Kubernetes Application Developer exam certifies that users can design, build, configure, and expose cloud native applications for Kubernetes. Interested in taking the exam? Have a look at the Candidate Handbook and the Frequently Asked Questions for more information!
