C-0148 - Ensure that the Controller Manager --root-ca-file argument is set as appropriate
Description of the the issue
Processes running within pods that need to contact the API server must verify the API server's serving certificate. Failing to do so could be a subject to man-in-the-middle attacks.
Providing the root certificate for the API server's serving certificate to the controller manager with the
--root-ca-file argument allows the controller manager to inject the trusted bundle into pods so that they can verify TLS connections to the API server.
What does this control test
Allow pods to verify the API server's serving certificate before establishing connections.
How to check it manually
Run the following command on the Control Plane node:
ps -ef | grep kube-controller-manager
Verify that the
--root-ca-file argument exists and is set to a certificate bundle file containing the root certificate for the API server's serving certificate.
Edit the Controller Manager pod specification file
/etc/kubernetes/manifests/kube-controller-manager.yaml on the Control Plane node and set the
--root-ca-file parameter to the certificate bundle file`.
You need to setup and maintain root certificate authority file.
--root-ca-file is not set.
