k8s-keystone-auth

Proof-Of-Concept : Kubernetes webhook authentication and authorization for OpenStack Keystone

Steps to use this webook with Kubernetes

  • Save the following into webhook.kubeconfig.
apiVersion: v1
clusters:
- cluster:
    insecure-skip-tls-verify: true
    server: https://localhost:8443/webhook
  name: webhook
contexts:
- context:
    cluster: webhook
    user: webhook
  name: webhook
current-context: webhook
kind: Config
preferences: {}
users:
- name: webhook

Configuration on K8s master for authentication

  • Add the following flags to your Kubernetes api server.
    • --authentication-token-webhook-config-file=/path/to/your/webhook.kubeconfig
    • --authorization-mode=Node,RBAC
  • Start webhook process with the following flags
    • --tls-cert-file /var/run/kubernetes/serving-kube-apiserver.crt
    • --tls-private-key-file /var/run/kubernetes/serving-kube-apiserver.key
    • --keystone-policy-file examples/policy.json
    • --keystone-url https://my.keystone:5000/v3

Configuration on K8s master for authorization

  • Copy the examples/policy.json and edit it to your needs.
  • Add the following flags to your Kubernetes api server.
    • --authorization-mode=Webhook,Node --authorization-webhook-config-file=/path/to/your/webhook.kubeconfig
  • When you start the webhook process make sure you also have the following flags (in addition to the flags in the case of authentication)
    • --keystone-policy-file examples/policy.json

K8s kubectl Client configuration

Old kubectl clients

  • Run openstack token issue to generate a token
  • Run kubectl --token $TOKEN get po or curl -k -v -XGET -H "Accept: application/json" -H "Authorization: Bearer $TOKEN" https://localhost:6443/api/v1/namespaces/default/pods

New kubectl clients v1.8.0 and later

The client is able to read the OS_ env variables used also by the openstackclient. You dont have to pass a token with --token, but the client will contact Keystone directly, will get a token and will use it. To configure the client to the following:

  • Run kubectl config set-credentials openstackuser --auth-provider=openstack

This command creates the following entry in your ~/.kube/config

- name: openstackuser
  user:
    as-user-extra: {}
    auth-provider:
      name: openstack
  • Run kubectl config set-context --cluster=kubernetes --user=openstackuser openstackuser@kubernetes
  • Run kubectl config use-context openstackuser@kubernetes to activate the context

Source your env vars. Make sure you include OS_DOMAIN_NAME or the client will fallback to Keystone V2 that is not supported by the webhook.This env should be ok:

OS_AUTH_URL="https://keystone.example.com:5000/v3"
OS_DOMAIN_NAME="default"
OS_IDENTITY_API_VERSION="3"
OS_PASSWORD="mysecret"
OS_PROJECT_NAME="myproject"
OS_REGION_NAME="myRegion"
OS_USERNAME="username"
  • Try: kubectl get pods

In case you are using this Webhook just for the authentication, you should get an authorization error:

Error from server (Forbidden): pods is forbidden: User "username" cannot list pods in the namespace "default"

You need to configure the RBAC with roles to be authorized to do something, for example:

kubectl create rolebinding username-view --clusterrole view --user username --namespace default

Try now again to see the pods with kubectl get pods

Tips

  • You can directly test the webhook with
cat << EOF | curl -kvs -XPOST -d @- https://localhost:8443/webhook | python -mjson.tool
{
	"apiVersion": "authentication.k8s.io/v1beta1",
	"kind": "TokenReview",
	"metadata": {
		"creationTimestamp": null
	},
	"spec": {
		"token": "$TOKEN"
	}
}
EOF

cat << EOF | curl -kvs -XPOST -d @- https://localhost:8443/webhook | python -mjson.tool
{
	"apiVersion": "authorization.k8s.io/v1beta1",
	"kind": "SubjectAccessReview",
	"spec": {
		"resourceAttributes": {
			"namespace": "kittensandponies",
			"verb": "get",
			"group": "unicorn.example.org",
			"resource": "pods"
		},
		"user": "jane",
		"group": [
			"group1",
			"group2"
		]
	}
}
EOF
