Deploying K10 with Red Hat OpenShift OAuth Proxy

Deploying K10 with Red Hat OpenShift OAuth Proxy

At Kasten, our mission is to dramatically simplify operational management of stateful cloud-native applications. Kasten’s K10, our enterprise-grade data management platform for Kubernetes backup and DR delivers on this mission by helping our customers protect their cloud-native applications against accidental or malicious data loss. As part of this mission to protect applications, we take security very seriously. In today’s multi-tenant Kubernetes clusters, security is critical for safety. This is why at Kasten we have built multiple ways of authenticating a user so that fine-grained role-based access control (RBAC) can be used with it. While we will cover our RBAC support in a later post, this article will list some of these authentication methods available in K10 with a focus on Red Hat OpenShift’s OAuth proxy. Read more →
