Securing Kubernetes Workloads
Why RBAC is not Enough for Intent-Based APIs
Kubernetes has officially arrived – with a recent survey from the CNCF stating that 78% of enterprises are using it in production deployments.
Enterprises have moved beyond experimenting, and have placed their trust in containers, and the infrastructure that supports them. Kubernetes is now mission-critical; and all the security and compliance rules and regulations of the old world need to somehow be retrofitted onto this new area.
Unfortunately, the old tools for access control like RBAC simply aren’t up to the challenge.
In this whitepaper, you’ll learn:
- The difference between Kubernetes intent-based APIs and traditional action-based APIs
- Why traditional role-based access control (RBAC) cannot address all the security needs of K8s
- How to take advantage of intent-based APIs to speed deployment time and limit risk
