Today we announce the release of version 1.4 of CoreOS Tectonic, our enterprise distribution of Kubernetes. Tectonic v1.4 incorporates self-hosted cluster technology, fixes a critical security vulnerability, and streamlines the user experience with our bare metal Installer, Console, and Identity services.

During OpenStack Summit Austin, we partnered with Intel in an initiative aiming to automate and orchestrate the deployment and management of OpenStack with Kubernetes. Today, we are pleased to announce a technical preview of the project affectionately called "Stackanetes", available with the latest OpenStack release, "Newton". This tech preview of OpenStack on Kubernetes provides high availability with simple scaling and control plane self-healing, virtual machine live migration, and the full complement of OpenStack IaaS features – deployed, managed, and scaled with Kubernetes automation.

A critical security bug has been found and fixed in Kubernetes TLS client authentication. This vulnerability affects Kubernetes v1.4.2 and older, and has been fixed in Kubernetes v1.4.3 and higher.

Identifying Affected Systems

To determine if a Kubernetes cluster is currently running a vulnerable version, run:

The "Dirty COW" privilege escalation vulnerability in the Linux kernel, as reported in CVE-2016-5195, has been patched in CoreOS Linux. The update is currently rolling out to the Alpha (1192.2.0), Beta (1185.2.0) and Stable (1122.3.0) channels.

Today we are announcing our first round of speakers and sponsors for Tectonic Summit, the premier event for enterprise Kubernetes. Happening in New York on December 12 and 13 at the Conrad Hotel, the conference gathers leaders in cloud computing, engineering, infrastructure, operations and DevOps to explore the business implications of adopting Kubernetes in an enterprise environment. Speakers will share their stories of evaluating and using container management systems like Kubernetes.

Earlier today, we announced that Redspread has joined the CoreOS team.

CoreOS Tectonic enables everyone to operate their server systems like Google does; we call this GIFEE (Google’s Infrastructure For Everyone). Built on Kubernetes, the production-grade container orchestration system, Tectonic enables you to manage complex containerized application infrastructure from application source code to live load balancer.

One of our missions here at CoreOS is to help secure the internet by allowing organizations of all sizes to deploy secure and scalable infrastructure in the same way internet giants such as Google, Twitter, and Facebook do. In short we are striving to make GIFEE a reality by working with the community that is developing Kubernetes. Today we are giving a preview of two Kubernetes 1.4 features we implemented upstream with the wider Kubernetes community.

To bring the value of Kubernetes to more enterprises, today we are excited to announce a private preview for Tectonic on additional operating systems: Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.2 and CentOS 7.2. Tectonic is still fully supported on CoreOS Container Linux.

We are currently opening this up to a limited number of customers. If you're interested in testing out support, please submit your contact information and a member of the team will be in touch.

Earlier this year we released rkt, the container engine by CoreOS, in its first stable version, and since then the project development has continued apace. Release after release, rkt keeps proceeding towards its goal of providing a stable and minimal container runtime. Here, we will take a small tour of the project’s status and some of its more notable changes since 1.0.
