GKE Sandbox: Independent operating system kernel to each container

At Google Cloud Next ‘19 we announced GKE Sandbox in beta, a new feature in Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) that increases the security and isolation of your containers by adding an extra layer between your containers and host OS. In addition to limiting potential attacks, GKE Sandbox helps teams running multi-tenant clusters, such as SaaS providers, who often execute unknown or untrusted code. “GKE Sandbox’s userland kernel acts as a firewall between applications and the cluster node’s kernel, preventing a compromised application from exploiting other applications through it,” said Jones.
