The Pinniped Concierge has two strategies available to support clusters, under the following conditions:
Token Credential Request API: Can be run on any Kubernetes cluster where a custom pod can be executed on the same node running
kube-controller-manager. This type of cluster is typically called “self-hosted” because the cluster’s control plane is running on nodes that are part of the cluster itself. Most managed Kubernetes services do not support this.
Impersonation Proxy: Can be run on any Kubernetes cluster where a
LoadBalancerservice can be created. Most cloud-hosted Kubernetes environments have this capability. The Impersonation Proxy automatically provisions a
LoadBalancerfor ingress to the impersonation endpoint.
If a cluster is capable of supporting both strategies, the Pinniped CLI will use the token credential request API strategy by default.
To choose the strategy to use with the concierge, use the
--concierge-mode flag with
pinniped get kubeconfig.
