Active Directory Security

At its core, Active Directory domain services (AD DS) is a structured data store of objects in the domain controller. It is a directory service from Microsoft for identity management and access control in Windows domain networks. Active Directory can authenticate users, groups, services and computers to protected information. In addition to that, AD DS also helps to implement security policies and permissions. AD DS enforces them for all computers in your network.

TLS Routing Support for Teleport Behind an AWS Application Load Balancer

In Teleport 8, we introduced the TLS Routing feature that can multiplex all client connections on a single TLS/SSL port. Recently we've added support for TLS Routing for Database Access when Teleport is deployed behind an AWS Application Load Balancer (ALB). In this article, we will take a deep look at the problem with Teleport behind an ALB and how we solved it.

A Simple Overview of Authentication Methods for Kubernetes Clusters

Kubernetes is a very complex product where creating and managing clusters requires a great deal of knowledge on a wide range of topics. The introduction of managed clusters brought simplicity to the process allowing users to focus on extracting the most out of the system. One of the areas of most interest and different configurations is authentication and authorization. In authentication, the main objective, and most critical of all, is to ensure the identity and validity of users and machines.

Securely Managing Your Audit Logs with Teleport and Snowflake

One of the most important features Teleport has to offer is that it centralizes all of your infrastructure’s audit logging into one central place, mapping every query, every command and every session to an individual user's identity. As you hire more engineers and resources scale, it can become increasingly difficult to manage all of this log data. Luckily Teleport’s extensibility makes this log data extremely easy to format, export and monitor all in a secure, event-driven way.

Securely Implementing IdP-initiated SAML2 Login

Security Assertion Markup Language 2.0, or more commonly known as SAML in the industry, is one of the most used protocols for single-sign-on on the modern web. It allows an application like Teleport to communicate with an upstream identity provider like Okta or Google Workspace to securely get trusted information about users when they log in, removing the need for sign-ups, log-ins and tying identities to people inside the application.

What Are JWTs?

JSON web tokens (JWTs) are an open standard for securely transmitting data as a JSON object between parties in a compact and self-contained format. Knowledge of JWTs is important because most modern systems and tools use them for secure, efficient and scalable authorization. Knowing about JWTs will also help you understand how third-party integrations with other software work.
