An EKS Cluster's kubelet configuration file ownership should be assigned to root


Ensure that if the kubelet refers to a configuration file with the --config argument. You should set its file ownership to maintain integrity and the file should be owned by root:root.


Run the following command to fix the kubelet configuration file’s permissions:

chown root:root /etc/kubernetes/kubelet/kubelet-config.json

Note: The path above is the default location in EKS.
