Kubernetes Heart Strokes #5

Kubernetes communities are so numerous and wide now, nobody can keep up. You will find gems in conferences, channels, groups every day. Check out Kubeweekly.com for yourself, if you are not yet convinced. What we love about Kubernetes is that more and more people are committing to it every day. They are developing code, sharing ideas, hacking the cloud native system. It is sparkling!

Scrum Is Killing Me...

Software is eating the world and it is a lot of fun. A lot of fun to work on products that are shaping our future or, at least, to hope and fight for it. It is a lot of fun to work with smart people, enthusiastic people, committed people. It is a hard work too. We do not want to compromise. We fail a lot. We need to stay right-in-time: not early, not late either. We need skilled people, talented people. We need diversity. We need to be part of teams. We need to be involved with a team; remain positive, accept ideas from others, be passionate and tolerant. So it is fun and it is hard! Well, it is especially hard since Scrum is killing me... again!

Lets start with facts I sometimes wonder if people know:
Scrum has been defined and maintained by Ken Schwaber and Jeff Sutherland who are 2 distinguished gentlemen. Scrum is documented as a whole in "The Definitive Guide to Scrum: The Rules of the Game" that is available under CC BY-SA that is an OpenSource License. There is no …

Using Docker with your own Certificate Authority

Image
You should be able to find several free Certificate Authorities in the wild. The most popular are probably Let's Encrypt or CACert. However, if for any reasons (restrictions, use of localhost, ability to automate...), you prefer to manage your own Certificate Authority, you will probably consider OpenSSL as a nice toolkit to build it. This blog presents a few useful commands. They are not intended, by any mean, to replace the official documentation but it might help to speed-up your initial setup and different scenarios.

If you own a CA, you could use it a lot with Docker... or not. I mean it could help. For instance, you could use it to secure a vault to store and share secrets. You could rely on a PKI to authenticate clients ans servers. You could also use it to encrypt HTTP protocol, including the access to your private registry. This blog will explore the latter scenario to illustrate how you can leverage your newly created Certificate Authority.
Important Note:
