KubeArmor v1.0 is here!

Runtime Security Enforcement

KubeArmor is a runtime Kubernetes security engine. It uses eBPF and Linux Security Modules(LSM) for fortifying workloads based on Cloud Containers, IoT/Edge, and 5G networks. It enforces policy-based controls.

First K8s Security Engine to Leverage BPF-LSM

KubeArmor is a runtime Kubernetes security engine. It uses eBPF and Linux Security Modules(LSM) for fortifying workloads based on Cloud Containers, IoT/Edge, and 5G networks. It enforces policy-based controls.

USE CASES

What Makes KubeArmor Unique?

Inline Mitigation

KubeArmor lessens the attack surface on pods, containers, and virtual machines. For inline mitigation, it uses Linux Security Modules (LSMs) like AppArmor, BPF-LSM, and SELinux to provide security without changing the pod or container or without host-level adjustments.

Simplicity with LSMs

KubeArmor simplifies their intricacies and makes enforcing policy simple. It functions as a non-privileged daemonset and has host, pod, and container monitoring capabilities.

Flaws of Post-Attack Mitigation

Our inline approach is proactive, in contrast to post-attack mitigation, which kills processes after malicious intent is observed. Attackers are able to run code and possibly elude detection with the help of post-attack mitigation.

Challenges of Pod Security Context

K8s native Pod Security Context has limitations, including difficulties in predicting available LSMs and a lack of support for BPF-LSM.

Multi-Cloud Challenges

Dealing with pod security contexts is difficult since cloud providers use various default LSMs.

EXPANSIONS

What's new?

IoT/Edge Security

KubeArmor provides the ability to restrict specific behavior of process executions, file accesses, networking operations, and resource utilization inside of your workload level.

5G Control Plane Security

KubeArmor directly enforces security policies using Linux Security Modules (LSMs) for each workload based on the identities (e.g., labels) of given containers or workloads.
