Keeping Kubernetes secrets secret
DevNation Tech Talks are hosted by the Red Hat technologists who create our products. These sessions include real solutions plus code and sample projects to help you get started. In this talk, you’ll learn how to manage Kubernetes secrets from Alex Soto Bueno and Burr Sutter.
Everyone is talking about microservices and serverless architecture, and how to deploy them using cluster managers like Kubernetes. But, what about the secrets (such as certificates, passwords, SSH, and API keys)? The current trend increases the number of secrets required to run our services. This fact places a new level of maintenance on our security teams.
How can we share and manage these secrets for our services in dynamic scenarios where instances are started automatically, or where there are multiple instances of the same services for scalability reasons? Are you keeping up?
Watch this recorded session to learn how to manage your secrets with Vault in Kubernetes, and why Kubernetes secrets themselves might be not enough. Start making security a first-class citizen in your development process.
