Conjur Open Source Suite release v1.13.0+suite.1

Hi all,
Another Conjur OSS Suite release is out, aligning with Conjur Server version v1.13.0 with more exciting developments!

Eliminate the secret zero problem to authenticate workloads based on JWT

To secure different DevOps tools and workloads with minimum effort and eliminate the secret zero problem, we have introduced a new JWT-based authenticator.
The JWT Authenticator enables any workload that can serve a JSON Web Token (JWT) to authenticate to Conjur. The JWT Authenticator enables you to configure a generic and flexible authentication. The configuration can be customized based on fields in the JWT while complying with the protocol’s security standards. For more information about the authenticator, see JWT Authenticator page and check out the working example of GitLab integration

Conjur TAS tile version 1.3.0 supporting VMware Tanzu 2.11

As announced earlier this month, we’ve updated our Tanzu TAS modules to support TAS 2.11. The Service Broker and Buildpack are now also tested for consistency againt the rest of the Suite Release.

Easier Conjur setup for K8s applications using Helm

We’ve published a preview ( Community release) of two new helm charts that simplify the deployment of Conjur-authenticated applications in Kubernetes environments.

  • conjur-config-cluster-prep : Applied centrally, this chart creates Kubernetes resources for authentication and a “Golden” ConfigMap , which serves as a source of truth for Conjur connection details.

  • conjur-config-namespace-prep : Applied per application namespace, this chart creates the namespace RoleBinding and a local copy of the above “Golden” ConfigMap .

Together, these Helm charts remove the need for application engineers to manage Conjur connection details. For more details, see the Helm README

Is your Mac running Apple Silicon?

If so, you’ll be glad to hear that we’ve updated Secretless Broker, Summon (along with the summon-conjur provider), and the Conjur Terraform provider to be compatible with the Apple Silicon processor. They can all be installed or upgraded through Homebrew or by following the installation instructions in the READMEs of their repositories.
