📌 In OpenShift or K8s, 𝐀𝐮𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐢𝐜𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 & 𝐀𝐮𝐭𝐡𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐳𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 are very crucial. These are required for cluster security. One must be authenticated (logged in) before your request can be authorized (granted permission to access)
📌 A cluster administrator can enable user 𝐚𝐮𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐢𝐜𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 to guarantee only allowed users have access to an OpenShift Container Platform cluster. Users must first authenticate to the OpenShift Container Platform API in some way before they can interact with an OpenShift Container Platform cluster.
📌 𝐀𝐮𝐭𝐡𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐳𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 entails verifying whether the identified user has the necessary permissions to carry out the requested activity. Using RBAC components like rules, roles, and bindings, administrators may specify and grant rights to users.
📌 Users can then be allocated roles that grant access to resources inside a project or throughout the cluster. 𝐑𝐁𝐀𝐂 is used to do this. A user’s ability to do an activity within a project is determined by role-based access control.
