This lab guides the student through the creation of a Kubernetes cluster using the kops installer. After the cluster is initialized, the Aquasec kube-bench utility is used to evaluate the mast node configuration against the CIS Benchmark. Then three failed tests are remediated by maintaining the kube-apiserver manifest.

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.
