Feedback form is now closed.
Open Policy Agent (CNCF project) is a full-featured policy engine that offloads policy decisions from your Kubernetes cluster to an external service.

Policies are essential to the long-term success of an organization, because they encode important knowledge about how to comply with legal requirements, avoid repeating mistakes, and so on.

For example, a custom policy could be that developers are ONLY allowed to reference container images in their Deployments from your own Private registry. Other could be , Developers must have certain labels be present in all deployment definitions identifying the business unit to chargeback to.

Join us as we take you through configuring and deploying custom policies using the Open Policy Agent. We will cover some common policies used in enterprises and walk you through how to implement them in OPA using Rego. Rego is OPA’s native query language.
