This guide explains how to setup Forseti on Kubernetes.
This is a proof of concept (POC) in the
Create (or use) a project with Forseti PaaS dependencies deployed: GCS buckets, Cloud SQL DB and Service Account(s)
Install Forseti server and client using
We are using dev branch for the POC.
The VM’s may be deleted or shutdown after the install as they will be replaced by the k8s solution.
Remaining steps can be run from a Google Cloud Shell VM in Forseti GCP project.
Download the Forseti server (and optionally client) service account keys and store them locally on the Cloud Shell VM temporarily for k8s secret creation. It is your responsibility to keep the key files secure.
git clone https://github.com/forseti-security/forseti-security.git cd forseti-security git checkout dev
gcloud builds submit --config install/docker/cloudbuild.yaml .
Dont forget the dot at the end.
cd install/scripts vi k8s_setup_forseti.sh
Specify the variables
If using the client, modify the client config file in the GCS bucket to point to the Forseti Server Cluster IP.
export FORSETI_SERVER_IP=10.43.240.3 # k8s Cluster IP for Forseti Server. Don't forget to manually add this to the Client config file in GCS bucket if using Client.
server_ip: <server cluster ip>
We will move away from this hard coded approach, however this is the current POC implementation.
If Scanner rules_path defaulted to
change it to use the GCS bucket directly:
rules_path: gs://<server bucket>/rules
Monitor the deployment in the GKE web console. Allow approximately 2 minutes for the cluster to spin up and another 30 seconds for the pods to become active.
kubectl get pods to get pod ids
kubectl exec -it <CLIENT_POD_ID> -- /bin/bash
Run Forseti commands to verify that Forseti server is working as expected.
