Controlling Access in Kubernetes with RBAC

Role-based access control is an important component when it comes to managing a Kubernetes cluster securely. The more users and automated processes there are that need to interface with the Kubernetes API, the more important controlling access becomes. In this lab, you will have the opportunity to practice your skills with the Kubernetes RBAC system by implementing your own RBAC permissions to appropriately limit user access.
