A recent information disclosure vulnerability (CVE-2018-5256) was found and addressed in Tectonic, which affects versions 1.7 through 1.8. Unauthenticated users were able to list all Namespaces through the Console. In 1.8, which finalized the transition from Third Party Resources (TPRs) to Custom Resource Definitions (CRDs), the ability to list all CRDs was affected by the same bug. The intention of this API endpoint is to enable listing all namespaces by logged-in users.

Today we're proud to announce Tectonic 1.8, the latest release of our enterprise-ready Kubernetes platform, is now available. This version, which we announced ahead of KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America earlier this month, is the first to ship with a catalog of industry-first Open Cloud Services that enable users to deploy key infrastructure components with the ease of managed cloud vendor offerings but without cloud vendor lock-in.

Kubernetes is the highest velocity cloud-related open source project, and its pace of development isn't slowing down. This week the project will ship Kubernetes 1.9, its latest release, coming three months after Kubernetes 1.8. The new version includes a number of updates, fixes, and new features, as you can see in the release notes. Many of these changes are "under the hood," however – so rather than diving into a feature checklist here, it's worth looking at the overarching goals driving the next phase of Kubernetes development.

Today we're happy to announce that Tectonic 1.8, the forthcoming release of our world-class enterprise Kubernetes platform, will ship with a catalog of industry-first Open Cloud Services. Open Cloud Services enable enterprises to deploy key infrastructure components with the ease and efficiency they've come to expect from public cloud providers, while avoiding cloud provider lock-in.

CoreOS was founded with the mission of securing the internet, and containerized infrastructure is a big part of how we’re achieving that aim. That’s why we were gratified to see the new guidance on application container security issued by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). In many ways, the report affirms the core principles upon which CoreOS was founded.

CoreOS Tectonic is Certified Kubernetes

 

Today CoreOS is pleased to announce that CoreOS Tectonic, our enterprise-ready Kubernetes platform, has passed the software conformance tests administered by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) to become one of the first fully Certified Kubernetes offerings on the market.

At CoreOS, we recognized early on that Kubernetes would become the go-to technology for managing containerized infrastructure in production. The project's openness has allowed it to be embraced by a veritable who's-who of technology vendors, integrators, and consumers. In fact, Kubernetes is now one of the fastest-growing projects in the history of open source. Yet while it may be tempting to assume that getting up and running with Kubernetes is as simple as downloading the code and deploying a cluster, the truth is that going this route can be easier said than done.

Tectonic 1.7.5 has arrived, and this release is all about monitoring. Container-based infrastructure is highly dynamic, which is great for agility, but enterprise-ready Kubernetes means having the right tools in place to monitor your clusters and respond quickly when problems arise. That's what Tectonic delivers.

With the release of Kubernetes 1.8, role-based access control (RBAC) has been promoted from beta to general availability. CoreOS, through our participation in the Kubernetes SIG Auth group, played a significant role in getting RBAC implemented in upstream Kubernetes. With its graduation to general availability, the feature and its core APIs can be considered stable.
