Description of the Webinar

It is required to install the followings to get started:

  • KubeDB Enterprise Operator
  • KubeVault Enterprise Operator
  • Secrets Store CSI Driver
  • Vault Specific CSI Provider

The demo starts with deploying VaultServer & Redis Database by KubeDB. It’s described how easy it is to get the decrypted vault-root-token using KubeVault CLI. Followed by, enabling SecretEngine & creating some Database Roles.

After that, it is shown how to manage user privileges using two different ways. Firstly, using the SecretAccessRequest, which is more human interaction friendly, that can be Approved or Denied using the KubeVault CLI. Secondly, using the SecretRoleBinding which is a more machine friendly way, that binds some roles to a K8s ServiceAccount.

Then, it’s demonstrated how microservices can communicate with databases in a more secure way using the Dynamic Secrets generated by Vault, where a microservice is deployed that can read mounted credentials and do database operation using that credentials. DB secrets are mounted on directories with the help of Secrets store CSI Driver & Vault CSI Provider.

Lastly, it’s shown how KubeVault CLI can be used to Revoke a user privileges by using a simple command.
