Kubernetes and Docker - An Enterprise Guide

Overview of this book

Containerization has changed the DevOps game completely, with Docker and Kubernetes playing important roles in altering the flow of app creation and deployment. This book will help you acquire the knowledge and tools required to integrate Kubernetes clusters in an enterprise environment. The book begins by introducing you to Docker and Kubernetes fundamentals, including a review of basic Kubernetes objects. You’ll then get to grips with containerization and understand its core functionalities, including how to create ephemeral multinode clusters using kind. As you make progress, you’ll learn about cluster architecture, Kubernetes cluster deployment, and cluster management, and get started with application deployment. Moving on, you’ll find out how to integrate your container to a cloud platform and integrate tools including MetalLB, externalDNS, OpenID connect (OIDC), pod security policies (PSPs), Open Policy Agent (OPA), Falco, and Velero. Finally, you will discover how to deploy an entire platform to the cloud using continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD). By the end of this Kubernetes book, you will have learned how to create development clusters for testing applications and Kubernetes components, and be able to secure and audit a cluster by implementing various open-source solutions including OpenUnison, OPA, Falco, Kibana, and Velero.

Exploring Falco's configuration files

Before you install Falco, you need to understand the configuration options that are available, and that starts with the initial configuration file that will be used to configure how Falco creates events.

The Falco project includes a set of base configuration files that you can use for your initial auditing. It is highly likely that you will want to change the base configuration to fit your specific enterprise requirements. In this section, we will go over a Falco deployment and provide a basic understanding of the configuration files.

Falco is a powerful system that can be customized to fit almost any requirement you may have for security. Since it is so extensible, it's not possible to cover every detail of the configuration in a single chapter, but like many popular projects, there is an active GitHub community at where you can post issues or join their Slack channel.
