Trusted TLS Certificates From GlobalSign Through cert-manager

Securing Your Kubernetes Environments with GlobalSign's Trusted TLS Certificates

When you're running Kubernetes in your DevSecOps environment, automating certificate management and building security into containerized workloads is one of the key jobs of a developer. The only secure way to do this is with X.509 certificates issued through cert-manager.

cert-manager is a cloud native certificate controller for Kubernetes clusters and OpenShift. It is used by developers to obtain trusted certificates from a Certificate Issuer to secure applications working within the Kubernetes cluster.

With an increasing number of machine identities to manage, manual certificate management is neither secure, or efficient.

The Challenges of Managing Kubernetes Environments

  • Demand for short-lived and automated trusted SSL/TLS certificates deployment and management specifically for cloud native Kubernetes or OpenShift environments is on the rise
  • Control and visibility of your certificate portfolios is a necessity
  • Lack of easy integrations with publicly trusted Certificate Authorities (CAs) disrupt productivity
  • There is a clear need to secure pod-to-pod communication with mTLS from trusted CAs

Building Security for Your Kubernetes Workloads

GlobalsSign's Atlas Issuer for cert-manager allows developers to obtain trusted SSL/TLS certificates for Kubernetes resources to secure Kubernetes Clusters.
