Implementing Cert-manager in K8s


Authors:   Jose Manuel Ortega


One of the best practices from a security point of view is to introduce the management of the certificates that we are going to use to support protocols such as SSL / TLS. In this talk we will explain cert-manager and his implementation in K8s as a native Kubernetes certificate management controller that allows us to manage connection certificates and secure communications through SSL/TLS protocols. Later I will explain the main functionalities and advantages that cert-manager provides, for example it allows us to validate that the certificates we are using in different environments are correct. Finally, some use cases are studied in which to use cert-manager and the integration with other services such as Let's Encrypt or HashiCorp Vault.Click here to view captioning/translation in the MeetingPlay platform!
