About the assignment

Thales beweegt zich op dit moment richting een microservices architectuur waarbij het systeem bestaat uit meerdere gedistribueerde applicaties die in containers draaien. Deze containers draaien in Kubernetes en worden door software defined networks met elkaar verbonden. Dit soort virtuele netwerken zijn dynamisch wat de beveiliging ervan interessant maakt. Er zijn vele containers binnen een systeem en het is niet mogelijk om dit real-time te monitoren. Thales is benieuwd of machine learning technieken hierbij kunnen helpen.

Een andere interessante aanpak van netwerk beveiliging is Zero Trust. Kan machine learning hierbij een interessante toepassing zijn?

Description of the assignment

Thales is currently moving towards a microservices architecture in which the system consists of multiple distributed applications running in containers. These containers run in Kubernetes and are communicating by software defined networks. These types of virtual networks are dynamic which makes their security interesting. There are many containers within a system and it is not possible to monitor this in real time. Thales is curious whether machine learning techniques can help with this.

Another interesting approach to network security is Zero Trust. Could machine learning be an interesting application here?
