Origin Authentication and RBAC in Istio with Custom Identity Provider

  • November 11, 2019
The concept of access control can be boiled down to two factors: authentication (AuthN) and authorization (AuthZ). While authentication determines the identity of a client based on the data presented to the identity provider (e.g., Google and Microsoft AD), authorization determines whether an authenticated principal may interact with the resource. I am not going to delve deep into the security architecture of Istio since I have covered this topic in detail in my upcoming FREE quick start guide on Istio.
