Kubernetes RBAC: Getting Permission or Asking for Forgiveness?

Presented by

Liz Rice

About this talk

Liz Rice is delivering an encore presentation of her talk that was delivered during the 2019 KubeSec Barcelona conference. For those of you familiar with KubeCon, KubeSec is a co-located KubeCon security event hosted by Aqua Security and partner technologies AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, and Red Hat. In fact, we’ll be hosting another one in November in San Diego – you can find this on the CNCF website under co-located events. In her talk, Liz explores how permissions work in Kubernetes through Role Based Access Control. RBAC is very powerful, but it’s complex, so in order to explain it she’ll compare it with something more familiar - the read, write and execute permissions visible when listing files on Linux. From there she’ll review how RBAC uses different abstractions and look at some tools for exploring the RBAC configuration on your cluster.
