Kubernetes RBAC: Getting Permission or Asking for Forgiveness?
In this talk* we’ll explore how permissions work in Kubernetes through Role Based Access Control. RBAC is very powerful, but it’s complex, so in order to explain it we’ll compare it with something more familiar - the read, write and execute permissions we see when we list files on Linux. From there we’ll see how RBAC uses different abstractions and look at some tools for exploring the RBAC configuration on your cluster.
*Liz Rice delivers an encore presentation of her talk that was delivered during the 2019 KubeSec Barcelona conference.
