The various components of Kubernetes require certificates in order to authenticate with one another. Provisioning a certificate authority and using it to generate those certificates is a necessary step in bootstrapping a Kubernetes cluster from scratch.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
