Security is perhaps the most complex dimension of Kubernetes – which is saying a lot, because Kubernetes as a whole is quite complex.
Security in Kubernetes is complex not only because there are so many types of threats to consider and layers to secure, but also because Kubernetes has an especially complicated security model. Kubernetes includes some built-in security features, but they address only certain categories of risk. As a result, Kubernetes admins must deploy additional tools to manage some of the potential vulnerabilities in a Kubernetes environment, such as those associated with container images and registries.
