Step v0.8.6: Bring development closer to production with valid HTTPS certificates
Almost 80% of web page loads now use TLS. But almost no one uses TLS in development and pre-production. Why? Because it’s hard. That sucks. When dev and staging don’t match prod, bad things happen. Today’s step release, version 0.8.6, makes using TLS in dev & pre-prod environments a whole lot easier.
Step v0.8.3: Federation and Root Rotation for step Certificates
The purpose of federation is to allow for secure communication across autonomous systems (e.g., across clouds or between kubernetes clusters). In this post, we’ll take a closer look into how federation works and how the step toolkit expands robust identity bootstrapping beyond a single Kubernetes cluster, cloud, or VM without getting bogged down by operational challenges.
