Set up the kubernetes integration.
Do not use automatically generated self-signed certificates for TLS connections between peers.
Etcd is a highly-available key value store used by Kubernetes deployments for persistent storage of all of its REST API objects. These objects are sensitive in nature and should be accessible only by authenticated etcd peers in the etcd cluster. Hence, do not use self-signed certificates for authentication.
This recommendation is applicable only for etcd clusters. If you are using only one etcd server in your environment then this recommendation is not applicable.
Run the following command on the etcd server node:
ps -ef | grep etcd
Verify that if the
--peer-auto-tls argument exists, it is not set to
Edit the etcd pod specification file
/etc/kubernetes/manifests/etcd.yaml on the master node and either remove the
--peer-auto-tls parameter or set it to false.
All peers attempting to communicate with the etcd server will require a valid client certificate for authentication.
Note: This recommendation is applicable only for etcd clusters. If you are using only one etcd server in your environment then this recommendation is not applicable. By default,
--peer-auto-tls argument is set to false.
