Start With Kubernetes


open-appsec for Kubernetes protects applications and APIs running in Kubernetes environments. It integrates with the most popular NGINX Ingress Controller, serving as a secure HTTP/S load balancer for one or more Services inside Kubernetes clusters. It also integrates with Kong Gateway (API Gateway), securing distributed, exposed APIs at the API Gateway level. Additional integrations (with e.g. Envoy, Ambassador) will be added soon as well.

The NGINX Ingress Controller and open-appsec for Kubernetes agent are deployed together with a single Helm chart. This diagram shows an example of a Kubernetes service exposed outside the Kubernetes cluster with an Ingress controller protected with open-appsec. The NGINX Ingress Controller container contains the open-appsec Attachment which communicates with the open-appsec Agent.
