Kubernetes - A Complete DevOps Cookbook

By: Murat Karslioglu

Overview of this book

Kubernetes is a popular open source orchestration platform for managing containers in a cluster environment. With this Kubernetes cookbook, you’ll learn how to implement Kubernetes using a recipe-based approach. The book will prepare you to create highly available Kubernetes clusters on multiple clouds such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Azure, Alibaba, and on-premises data centers. Starting with recipes for installing and configuring Kubernetes instances, you’ll discover how to work with Kubernetes clients, services, and key metadata. You’ll then learn how to build continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipelines for your applications, and understand various methods to manage containers. As you advance, you’ll delve into Kubernetes' integration with Docker and Jenkins, and even perform a batch process and configure data volumes. You’ll get to grips with methods for scaling, security, monitoring, logging, and troubleshooting. Additionally, this book will take you through the latest updates in Kubernetes, including volume snapshots, creating high availability clusters with kops, running workload operators, new inclusions around kubectl and more. By the end of this book, you’ll have developed the skills required to implement Kubernetes in production and manage containers proficiently.

Monitoring suspicious application activities using Falco

Falco is a cloud-native runtime security toolset. Falco gains deep insight into system behavior through its runtime rule engine. It is used to detect intrusions and abnormalities in applications, containers, hosts, and the Kubernetes orchestrator.

In this section, we will cover the installation and basic usage of Falco on Kubernetes.

Getting ready

Clone the k8sdevopscookbook/src repository to your workstation to use the manifest files in the chapter9 directory, as follows:

$ git clone
$ cd src/chapter9

Make sure you have a Kubernetes cluster ready and kubectl and helm configured to manage the cluster resources.

How to do it…

This section will show you how to configure and run Falco. This section is further divided into the following subsections to make this process easier:

  • Installing Falco on Kubernetes
  • Detecting anomalies using Falco
  • Defining custom rules
