Authentication is an important part of functionality across software applications and infrastructures. It allows you to restrict access to users the system recognizes via tokens, username and password pairs, certificates, and other authentication mechanisms.
Authentication helps control access to cluster resources by first verifying a user’s identity. In Kubernetes, the API server needs to verify the identity of every request it receives.
Despite being the most widely used open source container orchestration platform today, Kubernetes does not have the means to create and manage users—at least not natively.
Kubernetes, an automated system for managing containerized applications, offers multiple benefits to developers. It eliminates application downtime by creating a new pod automatically when an existing pod crashes, and it allows teams to easily scale applications for traffic increases or decreases.
Kubernetes is a container orchestration tool for managing, deploying, and scaling containerized applications. It helps engineering teams deploy and manage applications across multiple servers with fewer complexities.
If you need a policy management tool for your Kubernetes clusters, you have several options to choose from. Two popular policy tools are Open Policy Agent and jsPolicy.
Kubernetes has modernized how organizations build, test, and deploy their software. Thanks to its modularity, open-source framework, and role-based access control (RBAC), companies can create a highly scalable and reliable enterprise-grade cluster while meeting strict security and governance requirements.
Multi-tenancy in Kubernetes can seem like an appealing solution to many problems. Maybe it’s to give your developers their own space and save costs by doing it inside a single cluster.
With Kubernetes becoming the gold standard for advanced container orchestration, it’s also become necessary to use extensions that work alongside Kubernetes to provide security and modularity.
Providing security for our infrastructure and applications is a never-ending continuous process. This article will talk about security in Kubernetes clusters, traffic incoming and outgoing to/from the cluster, and the traffic within the cluster.
Kubernetes is hailed as a modern-day operating system for cloud-native applications. It simplifies application deployment and management for applications running in the cloud. However, when running applications deployed in production, security cannot be overlooked.
