Consistent user authentication in multi-cloud hosted Kubernetes clusters

Christian Simon

As hosted Kubernetes solutions mature, it becomes ever more compelling to operate clusters across multiple cloud providers. A general point of friction can often be the differences in how you are able to authenticate to those clusters. Cloud providers tend to integrate their own proprietary solutions and hosted control planes lack the flexibility to use authentication providers and audit sinks.

During this talk I will show how a reverse proxy in front of the Kubernetes API can implement uniform OIDC authentication across hosted Kubernetes solutions.
