KubeWeekly #222: June 26, 2020

The Headlines

Editor’s pick of the highlights from the past week. 

Congratulations, Harbor on CNCF Graduation!

This week, CNCF announced that the Harbor project has reached graduated status. The project is the eleventh to graduate. To move from the maturity level of incubation to graduation Harbor has demonstrated growing adoption, an open governance process, feature maturity, and a strong commitment to community, sustainability, and inclusivity.

Harbor is an open-source registry that secures artifacts with policies and role-based access control, ensures images are scanned and free from vulnerabilities, and signs images as trusted. We encourage you to learn more about the project and this exciting milestone here.

SPIFFE/SPIRE move to CNCF Incubation-level hosted projects

In other project news this week, SPIFFE/SPIRE is now an Incubation-level hosted project. The SPIFFE (Secure Production Identity Framework For Everyone) specification defines a standard to authenticate software services in cloud native environments through the use of platform-agnostic, cryptographic identities. SPIRE (the SPIFFE Runtime Environment) is the code that implements the SPIFFE specification on a wide variety of platforms and enforces multi-factor attestation for the issuance of identities. In practice, this reduces the reliance on hard-coded secrets when authenticating application services. 

Joining CNCF incubation-level projects like OpenTracing, gRPC, CNI, Notary, NATS, Linkerd, Rook, etcd, OPA, CRI-O, TiKV, CloudEvents, Falco, Argo, and Dragonfly, SPIFFE and SPIRE are part of a neutral foundation aligned with its technical interests, as well as the larger Linux Foundation, which provides governance, marketing support, and community outreach.
