Key Use Cases

Pod Security

  • Pods are the basic unit of deployment and where containers are run in Kubernetes. Securing pod configurations is critical. Nirmata policies help extend and automate Pod Security Admission.

Workload Security

  • Beyond Pods, all workload configurations in Kubernetes must also be secured. Secure configurations are also necessary across bulti-in resources like Network Policies, and Custom Resources such as Service Mesh configurations.

Best Practices

  • From basics like labeling, to advanced options that impact multi-tenancy and security, configuration best practices are essential to follow across all workloads including custom resource configurations.

Image Verification

  • Ensure software supply chain security by enabling signing and verification of container images and attestations, for compliance with SLSA and other security standards.


  • Securely share Kubernetes clusters across teams and applications to save costs and drive efficiency. Use policies to enforce isolation levels across the control-plane, data-plane, and ensure API fairness.

Kyverno vs. OPA/Gatekeeper

Compare the leading CNCF Policy Engines. When it comes to Kubernetes, Kyverno addresses more use cases and makes it easy to write and manage policies with no additional programming language and using standard tools

  • Kyverno

    • Designed as a Kubernetes policy engine 
    • Policies as native resources (YAML)
    • Policy violations and reports using standard constructs
    • Policies for automation workflows
    • Auto-generation for pod controllers
    • Integrated image verification
    • Use GitOps, Kustomize, and other standard tools

  • OPA/Gatekeeper

    • General purpose policy engine
    • Policies in Rego – a custom language with a steep learning curve
