Kubernetes Operator Updates

Our Mondoo Kubernetes Operator has seen yet another round of important improvements as we work towards the general availability of the operator next week. Kubernetes cluster node scanning now occurs using a Kubernetes CronJob instead of running the agent at all times on each node, saving CPU and memory resources. We've also added some behind the scenes capabilities required for registering the operator using a short-lived registration token instead of a full Mondoo service account. This keeps secrets out of the user's shell history when configuring the operator in the cluster. Our upcoming integrations setup workflow in the Mondoo Console will use this new capability to securely deploy the operator to your clusters.
