We know of Podman, Docker, Kubernetes, and containers in general. Some of us have even come to enjoy immutable operating systems - not only on our servers, but also on our desktops. What if we want to extend this paradigm to when we log into SSH and want to immediately start in a container, our own little sandbox? We've built a tool for that. Let's talk about its origins in Java and how the project was re-written and launched in Go. There are various use cases we can think of:

* Offer SSH in a web hosting service
* Create your own honeypot
* Provide a Linux learning environment
* Build a high security environment

But that's not all. We're sure you can think of even more. As a demo, we'll show you live how you can use this open source tool to build your own honeypot and observe who tries to break your infrastructure where and how. You're invited to break into it during the presentation. This talk is aimed at people of all skill levels as we will start with the story of how ContainerSSH came to be and explain the main concepts along the way.
