Instana

Talk: Instana makes heavy use of Dropwizard, including their wonderful administrative endpoints exposed over http. The one negative to this is that its been traditionally difficult to secure and audit their use at scale. While VPNs and shared credentials can cover you, its not the best setup. With Teleport though, we've been able to get secure and audited access to these internal services hassle free. To show how, lets break down the setup and configuration process across both Dropwizard and Teleport....
