Sysdig Contributes eBPF Components to CNCF

Sysdig, Inc. recently announced that it has contributed the sysdig kernel module, eBPF probe, and Falco libraries to the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). The contributed source code will be moved into the Falco organization, a cloud-native runtime security project and de facto Kubernetes threat detection engine, which was also contributed to the CNCF by Sysdig.

“These components are the perfect foundation for tools in runtime security, troubleshooting, incident response, forensics, and many other areas,” said Sysdig’s Loris Degioanni. 

“By open sourcing this critical piece of the stack, the community can use it to build new container and cloud security products and create a more secure cloud environment for everyone,” the announcement states.
