Kubewarden v1.1.1 Is Out: Policy Manager For Kubernetes

Share

We are happy to announce the first minor release of Kubewarden v1.0: v1.1.1 is now available! For those of you new to Kubewarden, it is a policy manager for Kubernetes.

Changes

Apart from being a nice-looking number, v1.1.1 includes:

  • Improved API policies for Sigstore verification by adding a new backward-compatible WaPC host callback v2/verify functions to the API. Check them out here to add support for your language of choice. This has been used in the verify-image-signatures policy to simplify verification of GitHub Actions signatures and others. Read about it in this blog post.
  • Made policy-server and kwctl resilient to hiccups in the upstream Sigstore’s repository for Fulcio and Rekor by making it optional. With this change, Kubewarden tools will proceed forward instead of aborting by informing the user and failing safely by issuing false negatives of signature verifications if needed. This overcomes last week’s metadata update in the upstream Sigstore repository, which sadly was non-TUF spec-compliant. This is also a part of the groundwork for making air-gapped installations easier to use.

Try it out! It is just a helm upgrade away, and as usual, we look forward to your feedback! 🙂
