How Structured Authentication Config changes Kubernetes auth, with Maksim Nabokikh

KubeFM

27-02-2024 • 30 mins

Structured Authentication Config is the most significant Kubernetes authentication system update in the last six years.

In this KubeFM episode, Maksim explains how this is going to affect you:

  1. You can use multiple authentication providers simultaneously (e.g., Okta, Keycloak, GitLab) — no need for Dex.

  2. You can change the configuration dynamically without restarting the API server.

  3. You can use any JWT-compliant token for authentication.

  4. You can use CEL (Common Expression Language) to determine whether the token's claims match the user's attributes in Kubernetes (username, group).
