Edgeless Systems Releases Confidential Kubernetes Distribution


Constellation is a secure Kubernetes implementation that leverages confidential computing.

Confidential computing is a relatively new security paradigm that addresses the problem of running sensitive workloads on someone else’s infrastructure, says Felix Schuster. Fundamentally, he explains, “confidential computing is about two things: (1) keeping workloads encrypted and isolated during processing and (2) making this circumstance externally verifiable via cryptographic certificates.”

Now, Edgeless Systems has released Constellation, a secure implementation of Kubernetes (K8s) that leverages confidential computing. The open source Constellation distribution is “a CNCF-certified K8s and, from a usability perspective, should work like “normal” K8s distributions. Constellation adds features like Sigstore-based supply chain security to the core Confidential K8s concept,” Schuster says.

According to the website, Constellation runs on Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, and Amazon Web Services.
