Teleport gives teams that manage infrastructure access:

Teleport is available through the free, open source edition ("Teleport Community Edition") or a commercial edition ("Teleport Enterprise Edition").

Below is a brief summary of the documentation available here.

Teleport Community

The Community Edition is on Github if you want to dive into the code. This documentation is also available in the Github repository, so feel free to create an issue or pull request if you have comments.

Teleport Enterprise

Teleport Enterprise is built around the open-source core in Teleport Community, with the added benefits of role-based access control (RBAC) and easy integration with identity managers for single sign-on (SSO). Because the majority of documentation between the Community and Enterprise Editions overlap, we have separated out the documentation that is specific to Teleport Enterprise.


We also have several guides that go through the most typical configurations and integrations.

Teleport is made by Gravitational. We hope you enjoy using Teleport. If you have comments or questions, feel free to reach out to the Gravitational Team: [email protected].

Teleport Enterprise

Teleport Enterprise is built around the open-source core, with premium support and additional, enterprise-grade features. It is for organizations that need to secure critical production infrastructure and meet compliance and audit requirements.
