Kubernetes Integration Guide

When an application is launched in a Kubernetes environment, Aporeto inspects the Kubernetes APIs and extracts this identity information. Aporeto also combines this application identity from Kubernetes with metadata from the cloud provider, host, and any third-party system (e.g. container image vulnerability scanners) for a comprehensive multi-attribute identity.


The multi-attribute service identity assigned to applications, allows the creation of dynamic declarative policies tied to an application instance. This new paradigm of dynamic policies allows operations and security teams to achieve continuous deployment of applications with security compliance.
