Set up the kubernetes integration.
Ensure that Kubernetes PKI certificate files have permissions of 644 or more restrictive.
Kubernetes makes use of a number of certificate files as part of the operation of its components. The permissions on these files should be set to 644 or more restrictive to protect their integrity.
Run the below command (based on the file location on your system) on the master node.
find /etc/kubernetes/pki -name "*.crt" | xargs stat -c '%n %a'
Verify the permissions are
644 or more restrictive.
Run the below command (based on the file location on your system) on the master node. For example,
chmod -R 644 /etc/kubernetes/pki/*.crt
By default, the certificates used by Kubernetes are set to have permissions of 644
5.1 Minimize And Sparingly Use Administrative Privileges - Minimize administrative privileges and only use administrative accounts when they are required. Implement focused auditing on the use of administrative privileged functions and monitor for anomalous behavior.
