An inside look at how we designed a discovery protocol for Teleport.
Most monitoring tools are great for a high-level view of how your applications and infrastructure are performing, but have many gaps when it comes to security. In this blog, we look at two areas where visibility is typically lacking: SSH and Kubernetes.
In this article, we explain what a certificate authority is and what role it plays in securing communication between a user and a resource.
Hot on the heels of our 4.0 release, we now have another point bump to Teleport. Teleport now speaks IPv6, ProxyJump, Debian & RPM packages and much more.
Teleport helped Gladly secure their cloud-native infrastructure, provided logs for customers and auditors, and allowed their team to focus on building a great product rather than managing privileged access.
SAML is frequently used to implement internal corporate single sign-on (SSO) solutions where the user logs into a service that acts as the single source of identity which then grants access to a subset of other internal services. This particular post will be focused on providing an overview of the how and why of SSO and SAML.
We are excited to announce the new open source project: Gravitational Wormhole, a Kubernetes network plugin that combines the simplicity of flannel with encrypted networking from WireGuard.
Secure Shell (SSH) is a widely used Transport Layer Protocol to secure connections between clients and servers. SSH is also the underlying protocol that Teleport uses to secure connections between clients and servers. In this article, we walk through how SSH really works.
Auth0 selected Teleport by Gravitational to provide secure access to their customers’ infrastructure, whether it’s hosted in a public or private environment.
This new release of Teleport brings support for EKS. Now Teleport can act as a single authentication gateway for Kubernetes clusters running on EKS
Given our experience with SSH we are often asked about restricted shells. In this article we cover some common ways so-called 'secure restricted shells' are implemented to show what works and what doesn't work.
An overview of Teleport's SSH certificate authority pinning capability and discussion of how HTTP public key pinning (HPKP) can be used to improve SSH CA user experience.
The recently discovered xterm.js vulnerability shows how bugs are hard to kill as technology evolves.
Today we are announcing the new release of Teleport. This version adds support for Kubernetes protocol, becoming a universal security gateway for both SSH and Kubernetes clusters.
This release of Teleport adds support for scp protocol via a Web UI, brings performance improvements for large clusters and adds more flexibility in configuring your infrastructure for PCI, SOC2, GDPR and other SSH compliance/audit use cases.
This post discusses the different approaches that can be taken to gracefully restart an application and provides a working sample that can be used to dig into the details. This post should be interesting to developers and SREs who build and maintain services written in Go.
Cyber security researches from Cure53 have completed a full security audit of Gravitational's privileged access management layer for SSH and Kubernetes. Here is a brief summary of their findings and links to the full source-assisted penetration test report.
We are happy to announce the release of v2.6 of Teleport. This is a major release which delivers several important new features. The source code of this release has also gone through a security audit performed by Cure53.
This post is the first of an ongoing series about interesting issues and bugs that the Teleport team has worked on. This post, about missing SIGINTs and SSH, should be interesting for developers who leverage signal handling in terminal-based applications written in Go.
A customer recently asked how to utilize Teleport's RBAC mechanism to restrict access to critical nodes within an OpenSSH cluster. This blog post explains how to do this.
This release of Teleport brings easier AWS deployments at scale and includes several usability enhancements.
The Teleport Proxy requires a valid x509 certificate to serve content like the Web UI via HTTPS. In this post we show how to configure the Teleport Proxy to use Let's Encrypt for this.
There are many strategies and products to help you manage SSH keys. This blog post argues that instead of managing SSH keys one should switch to short-lived SSH certificates instead.
In this post we show you how to use Github as an identity manager to control who has access to your server infrastructure through SSH
In this blog post we show how to record SSH sessions with OpenSSH sshd using Teleport as a recording proxy
We cover the difference between OpenSSH servers and Teleport SSH node service for Teleport clusters.
Announcing the new version of Teleport SSH server. Two major new features of this release are recording of OpenSSH sesssions for audit purposes and authentication via Github OAuth2.
We are happy to announce the release of v2.3 of Teleport. This release focuses on making Teleport much easier to configure and use.
We review the challenges MSPs face in a hybrid, multi-cloud world.
This post covers the new features and improvements that made it into 2.2 release.
Teleport 2.0.5 Security Fixes
