Talks and articles


  • cyberark/KubiScan: a tool by Eviatar Gerzi to scan Kubernetes cluster for risky RBAC permissions
  • appvia/krane: a Kubernetes RBAC static analysis and visualisation tool
  • alcideio/rbac-tool: Collection of Kubernetes RBAC power toys - Visualize, Generate & Query by Alcide

Generators and operators

  • liggitt/audit2rbac: takes a Kubernetes audit log and username as input, and generates RBAC role and binding objects that cover all the API requests made by that user.
  • fairwindsops/rbac-manager: operator that supports declarative configuration for RBAC with new custom resources.
  • rond-authz/rond: Rönd is a lightweight container that distributes security policy enforcing throughout your application.

Interactive queries

  • corneliusweig/rakkess: show an access matrix for server resources.
  • fairwindsops/rbac-lookup: allows you to easily find Kubernetes roles and cluster roles bound to any user, service account, or group name.
  • sbueringer/kubernetes-rbacq: simplifies querying Subjects and Rights specified in Kubernetes through Roles/ClusterRoles and RoleBindings/ClusterRoleBindings.
  • Ladicle/kubectl-bindrole: finding Kubernetes roles bound to a specified service account, group or user.
  • aquasecurity/kubectl-who-can: show all the subjects who have permission to perform a given verb on specified resources, for example, find all the subjects who can create pods in a given namespace, or who can delete nodes in the cluster.
  • mhausenblas/rbIAM: a unified AWS IAM & Kubernetes RBAC access control exploration tool.


  • jasonrichardsmith/rbac-view: visualizes RBAC permissions in tabular format in your browser.
  • team-soteria/rback: generates a graph representation (in Graphviz dot format) of a Kubernetes cluster's RBAC settings.
  • sighupio/permission-manager: super-easy and user-friendly RBAC management for Kubernetes. You can create users, assign namespaces/permissions, and distribute Kubeconfig YAML files via a nice and easy web UI.
