Networking: Domains & TLS

To allow your cluster users to create Kubernetes ingresses to view their applications via domains, you need to install an ingress controller into the connected cluster.

Ingress Controller

In loft, you will find the recommended app nginx-ingress which is the default ingress controller for Kubernetes.

SSL Certificates (TLS)

To allow your users to protect their network traffic using TLS, you can install the recommended apps:

  • cert-manager for automatic certificates via Let's Encrypt (requires a CertIssuer)
  • cert-issuer to create a default CertIssuer for cert-manager (make sure to specify an email address in the Chart Values field when installing this app)
