A central access manager for SSH, Kubernetes, and others



Teleport turns out to be a multitalented tool for establishing and managing connections between clients and their server-based services. The consistent focus on X.509 certificates means the end of passwords, as Teleport puts the fun factor back into certificate management. Admins and users remain largely insulated from the complexity of a CA. Teleport handles this part almost completely autonomously – at least after the initial setup. Moreover, the features in Teleport that offer additional functionality are impressive – eBPF integration with some sample applications for KRSI being just one example.

If you are looking to replace a mess of SSH, jump hosts, and half-baked security with a decent solution, Teleport is the way to go. This is all the more true because Teleport can also be used with a variety of external authentication options. If so desired, users can even do without a separate directory service in their Teleport setups.
