Welcome to Compliant Kubernetes¶
Elastisys Compliant Kubernetes® is a Certified Kubernetes distribution, i.e., an opinionated way of packaging and configuring Kubernetes together with other projects. Compliant Kubernetes reduces the compliance burden, as required to comply with:
- Swedish Healthcare (Patientdatalagen)
- General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
- Other regulations that map to information security standards, such as ISO 27001
Why Compliant Kubernetes?¶
Kubernetes has established itself as a go-to solution for high development velocity without vendor lock-in. However, vanilla Kubernetes is not usable in regulated industry, since it is not secure by default, nor by itself. Therefore, if you want to benefit from the speed of cloud native development in regulated industries, Kubernetes needs to be carefully configured. Furthermore, Kubernetes is a laser-focused project ("Make each program do one thing well."), so it needs to be complemented with other cloud native projects.
Compliant Kubernetes fills this gap.
