  1. Challenge

    Configure Admission Control

    The cluster needs to be configured to scan incoming container images before running workloads. An image scanning service is already set up.

    Modify the admission control configuration so that it will implicitly deny images, even if the image scanning service is unreachable. The global admission control configuration is at /etc/kubernetes/admission-control/admission-control.conf, and the specific configuration for the admission controller is at /etc/kubernetes/admission-control/imagepolicy.conf.

  2. Challenge

    Set the URL of the Image Scanning Service

    Add the URL of the image scanning service to the kubeconfig used by the admission controller.

    The service can be reached at https://acg.trivy.k8s.webhook:8090/scan.

  3. Challenge

    Enable the Admission Control Plugin(s)

    In the kube-apiserver manifest, enable any admission control plugin(s) necessary to scan images.

    There are two Pod manifests in /home/cloud_user on the CLI server. If your setup is working, no-vulns-pod.yml should pass image validation, while vulns-pod.yml should fail due to vulnerabilities.
