First conceived by John Kindervag in 2010, zero-trust security is a network architecture that verifies both identity and devices before they can access another system. Traditionally, users or devices would connect first, then get vetted—zero-trust flips that around.

Zero-trust security principals are now being adopted as a requirement by a growing number of organizations due to an increase in security breaches. As such, software architects should familiarize themselves with zero-trust and, where appropriate, start applying it. While the zero-trust concepts have been around for a decade, just recently techniques emerged to make a zero-trust approach practical for all organizations.

When applied correctly, zero-trust permits a strong security posture to be attained without a negative impact on ilities, as is often the case when securing systems. This presentation covers the history, benefits, and details about where to apply these principles. The speaker will also introduce a few options for building in zero-trust while presenting a high-level architecture of a system developed with his leadership. As part of this, we will discuss examples of how ilities were positively impacted—such as agility improvements from better being able to leverage infrastructure-as-code when deploying throughout the release pipeline.
