  • Windows auth with K8s on prem
    2 projects | /r/k8s | 1 Jun 2023
    It is sort of a roundabout way, but I sync Active Directory to a Keycloak realm, then use OIDC auth with kube-oidc-proxy (https://github.com/jetstack/kube-oidc-proxy) and kubelogin (https://github.com/int128/kubelogin) for OIDC-based auth to the api server.

    Yes, I setup a cluster with no SPFs. That means an HA setup for the external load balancer. I use HAProxy for my ELB, and setup 2 instances with a VRRP + keepalived to provide HA to the ingress controller. I run the control plane private, accessible only from localhost. I setup kube-oidc-proxy (https://github.com/jetstack/kube-oidc-proxy) to expose the API server with single sign-on on the ingress controller, and use the kubelogin plugin (https://github.com/int128/kubelogin) to provide OIDC support to kubectl. I then setup Keycloak to handle OIDC/OAuth2/SAML and syncing to Active Directory, and setup groups in Active Directory to control acccess to clusters. Devs each get their own namespace in the dev cluster, with mostly cluster-admin access to their namespace. Staging/Prod clusters are locked down, with read-only access to devs. Thanks to the OIDC auth to the APIServer, when employees are onboarded & offboarded, we only need to add/remove them from groups in Active Directory and everything else just magically syncs.

    I use the kube-login plugin for kubectl (https://github.com/int128/kubelogin) along with the kube-oidc-proxy (https://github.com/jetstack/kube-oidc-proxy), using Keycloak as my OIDC provider (https://www.keycloak.org) and doing LDAP synchronization to Active Directory.

  • What is the biggest challenge you/your org faces while running k8s in production?
    3 projects | /r/kubernetes | 10 Nov 2021
    We use Keycloak for this purpose. We deploy an OIDC-proxy to the kube-api (https://github.com/jetstack/kube-oidc-proxy), then use the kubectl plugin 'kubelogin' (aka oidc-login if you use krew - https://github.com/int128/kubelogin). This gives us the ability to have no user secrets in our KUBECONFIG, and to use Keycloak's Active Directory/LDAP user & group federation to control access to clusters. With this, downloading the KUBECONFIG is self-service, and adding users to new clusters is as easy as adding them to a group in AD.
  • How to Secure Your Kubernetes Cluster with OpenID Connect and RBAC

    Before we can go ahead and test this out, we need to do some setup for kubectl so that it knows how to do OIDC authentication. We need to install kubelogin plugin for this. Go ahead and install it using any of the following commands.

    kubelogin - If you're using OIDC provider such as Google, Keycloak or Dex for authenticating to Kubernetes cluster, then this plugin also known as oidc-login in krew can help you avoid having to manually login into your cluster over and over again. When you setup this plugin, every time you attempt to run any kubectl command without having valid authentication token, oidc-login will automatically open your provider's login page and after successful authentication grabs the token and logs you into the cluster.
