OWASP Kubernetes Security Projects


Kubernetes has become an essential tool for deploying and managing containerized applications. However, securing Kubernetes clusters is a complex challenge. The OWASP Kubernetes Project helps developers and security professionals understand and mitigate the risks associated with running Kubernetes.


This blog post will provide an overview of the OWASP Kubernetes Project, including its goals, resources, and top ten security risks.


OWASP Kubernetes Project Goals


The OWASP Kubernetes Project aims to:


Raise awareness of security risks associated with Kubernetes


Provide resources to help developers and security professionals secure their Kubernetes clusters


Collaborate with the Kubernetes community to improve security


OWASP Kubernetes Resources


The OWASP Kubernetes Project provides a variety of resources, including:


The OWASP Kubernetes Top Ten: A prioritized list of the top ten security risks for Kubernetes


The OWASP Kubernetes Security Guide: A comprehensive guide to securing Kubernetes clusters


The OWASP Kubernetes Security Cheat Sheet: A quick reference guide to common Kubernetes security best practices


A variety of tools and libraries to help you secure your Kubernetes clusters


OWASP Kubernetes Top Ten Security Risks


The OWASP Kubernetes Top Ten is a list of the top ten security risks for Kubernetes. These risks are:


Insecure workload configurations


Supply chain vulnerabilities


Overly permissive RBAC configurations


Inadequate logging and monitoring


Secrets management




Container escape


Cluster API vulnerabilities


CNF (Container Network Function) vulnerabilities


API server vulnerabilities


By understanding and mitigating these risks, you can help to improve the security of your Kubernetes clusters.




The OWASP Kubernetes Project is a valuable resource for anyone who is responsible for securing Kubernetes clusters. By leveraging the resources and guidance provided by the project, you can help to ensure that your Kubernetes deployments are secure and reliable.
