Managing Kubernetes clusters at scale can be a daunting task, especially when dealing with multiple clusters and the need to federate access and manage RBAC for a group of developers. However, the integration of two open-source projects, Kamaji and Paralus, provides an innovative solution to address these challenges. In this blog post, we will explore how Kamaji's Kubernetes-in-Kubernetes approach and Paralus' centralized RBAC and authentication features work together seamlessly to simplify cluster management, enhance security, and streamline RBAC operations.

Applications today have become advanced and complex. They can perform simple tasks like adding up two numbers to controlling a rocket in space. Irrespective of what the application does, ensuring that the application and the underlying infrastructure is safe and secured is critical.

So as teams and organizations build applications, we want to ensure that their infrastructure is secured. That was one of the reasons we came up with Paralus. We went a step further and donated it to the CNCF to help the community and also in turn build Paralus.

June 28, 2022, was an extremely special day for all of us here at Paralus. It was the day when Paralus was born. The day when we presented Paralus to the world. A lot of tools exist today for managing Kubernetes access. From the default role-based access control mechanism to custom DIY solutions along with a few open-source projects. However, most of these tools aren't easy to configure especially when it comes to individual clusters.

Organizations today are focusing a lot on scalability and flexibility of their applications. Most of the age-old monolith applications are now being converted to more modern and agile microservices which reside in containers.

As more and more applications are containerized, orchestration tools like Kubernetes are at the helm. However, with every new resource addition, there's an overhead. And the one that we are going to focus on today is access management for Kubernetes.

The concept of safety and security have been prevalent from the early days of human existence. Back in the day, watch towers and sentries were a way for kings to keep a watch on their surroundings.

In the modern day setup, information security is a bigger challenge than physical security. Confidential & sensitive data runs into petabytes and it becomes all the more important to safeguard not only the data but the entire infrastructure.

Kubectl is one of the most widely used tools to work with Kubernetes. The command line tool allows you to deploy applications, inspect and manage resources. It basically authenticates with the control plane for your cluster and makes API calls to the Kubernetes API. In short if you are working with Kubernetes - you will use kubectl the most.

In most modern day scenarios, there are multiple users who are accessing various clusters. This makes it all more important to ensure that every user or group has access to only those resources that they are allowed to. Few ways to achieve this is using namespaces and role based access control. While these are good, most enterprise grade application deployments require something more robust.
