Illuminatio - The kubernetes network policy validator

Build Status

alt text

Illuminatio is a tool for automatically testing kubernetes network policies. Simply execute illuminatio clean run and Illuminatio will scan your kubernetes cluster for network policies, build test cases accordingly and execute them to determine if the policies are in effect.

An overview of the concept is visualized in the concept doc.

Getting started

Follow these instructions to get Illuminatio up and running.

Prerequisites

  • Python 3
  • Pip 3

Installation

with pip:

pip3 install illuminatio

or directly from the repository:

git clone https://github.com/inovex/illuminatio
cd illuminatio
python3 setup.py install
cd ..

Example Usage

Create a Deployment to test with:

kubectl create deployment web --image=nginx
kubectl expose deployment web --port 80 --target-port 80

Define and create a NetworkPolicy for your Deployment:

cat <<EOF | kubectl create -f -
kind: NetworkPolicy
apiVersion: networking.k8s.io/v1
metadata:
  name: web-deny-all
spec:
  podSelector:
    matchLabels:
      app: web
  ingress: []
EOF

Test your newly created NetworkPolicy:

illuminatio clean run
Starting cleaning resources with policies ['on-request', 'always']
Deleting namespaces [] with cleanup policy on-request
Deleting namespaces [] with cleanup policy always
Deleting DSs in default with cleanup policy on-request
Deleting pods in default with cleanup policy on-request
Deleting svcs in default with cleanup policy on-request
Deleting CfgMaps in default with cleanup policy on-request
Deleting CRBs  with cleanup policy on-request globally
Deleting SAs in default with cleanup policy on-request
Deleting DSs in default with cleanup policy always
Deleting pods in default with cleanup policy always
Deleting svcs in default with cleanup policy always
Deleting CfgMaps in default with cleanup policy always
Deleting CRBs  with cleanup policy always globally
Deleting SAs in default with cleanup policy always
Finished cleanUp

FROM             TO               PORT  RESULT

The clean keyword assures that illuminatio clears all potentially existing resources created in past illuminatio runs to prevent potential issues, however no user generated resources are affected.

PLEASE NOTE that currently each new run requires a clean, as the runners do not continuously look for new cases.

For the case that you really want to keep the generated resources you are free to omit the clean keyword.

If you are done testing you might want to easily delete all resources created by illuminatio:

illuminatio clean

To preview generated test cases without running tests use illuminatio run's --dry option:

illuminatio run --dry
Starting test generation and run.
Got cases: [NetworkTestCase(from=ClusterHost(namespace=default, podLabels={'app': 'web'}), to=ClusterHost(namespace=default, podLabels={'app': 'web'}), port=-*)]
Generated 1 cases in 0.0902 seconds
FROM             TO               PORT
default:app=web  default:app=web  -*

Skipping test execution as --dry was set

All options and further information can be found using the --help flag on any level:

illuminatio --help
Usage: illuminatio [OPTIONS] COMMAND1 [ARGS]... [COMMAND2 [ARGS]...]...

Options:
  -v, --verbosity LVL  Either CRITICAL, ERROR, WARNING, INFO or DEBUG
  --incluster
  --help               Show this message and exit.

Commands:
  clean
  run

Compatibility

illuminatio 1.1 was tested using:

  • python 3.5.2
  • pip 19.2.1

illuminatio 1.1 is confirmed to be working properly with the following kubernetes environments:

  • minikube v0.34.1, kubernetes v1.13.3
  • Google Kubernetes Engine, v1.12.8-gke.10
  • kubeadm 1.15.0-00, kubernetes v1.15.2
