Note: to enable this control run Kubescape with host sensor (see here)
etcd is a highly available key-value store used by Kubernetes deployments for persistent storage of all of its REST API objects. These objects are sensitive in nature and should be encrypted at rest to avoid any disclosures.
Encrypt etcd key-value store.
Run the following command on the Control Plane node:
ps -ef | grep kube-apiserver
Verify that the
--encryption-provider-config argument is set to a
EncryptionConfig file. Additionally, ensure that the
EncryptionConfig file has all the desired
resources covered especially any secrets.
Follow the Kubernetes documentation and configure a
EncryptionConfig file. Then, edit the API server pod specification file
/etc/kubernetes/manifests/kube-apiserver.yaml on the master node and set the
--encryption-provider-config parameter to the path of that file:
--encryption-provider-config is not set.
