  • Building a "complete" cluster locally
    24 projects | reddit.com/r/kubernetes | 31 Oct 2021
    Ideas from my kubernetes experience: * Cert-Manager is very popular and almost a must-have if you terminate SSL inside the cluster * Backups using velero * A dashboard/UI is actually very helpful to quickly browse resources, client tools like k9s are fine too * Secret: Management: Bitnami Sealed Secrets is the second big project in that space * I would add Loki to aggregate Logs * Never heard of ory. Usually I see (dex)[https://dexidp.io/] or keycloak used for Authentication * I like to run OpenEBS as in-cluster storage. * Istio isn't compatible with the upcomming ServiceMeshInterface (i think), so the trend seem to go toward Linkerd * Some Operator to deploy your favorite Database, is also a nice learning exercise.

  • GitHub Actions checkspelling community workflow GitHub_TOKEN leakage via symlink
    4 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 9 Sep 2021
    This is super interesting; we had a fairly long discussion about whether or not to add this action to cert-manager[1], and ended up rejecting it in part because it increased the risk of supply-chain attacks and that risk wasn't, in our opinion, outweighed by the potential benefit of catching more spelling mistakes.[2]

    For me, I think there's a wider point here that GitHub Actions are pretty scary in terms of these kinds of attacks. Pre-packaged actions are easy to add to a project but come with risks, as this security advisory shows! There are a few aspects to Actions which made me a little uneasy in terms of my threat models when building software, and personally I've tended to avoid them.

    On the other hand, seems that this is a problem that has been around for a while, at least in k3s clusters. In the linked issue (from april 2020 no less and still open) I've left a comment with some more details.
