Enable TLS for Kube-Registry

By | June 16, 2017

This document describes how to enable TLS for kube-registry. Before you start, please check if you have all the prerequisite:

  • A domain for kube-registry. Assuming it is myregistrydomain.com.
  • Domain certificate and key. Assuming they are domain.crt and domain.key

Pack domain.crt and domain.key into a Secret

$ kubectl --namespace=kube-system create secret generic registry-tls-secret --from-file=domain.crt=domain.crt --from-file=domain.key=domain.key

Run Registry

Please be noted that this sample rc is using emptyDir as storage backend for simplicity.

Expose External IP for Kube-Registry

Modify the default kube-registry service to LoadBalancer type and point the DNS record of myregistrydomain.com to the service external ip.

apiVersion: v1
kind: Service
metadata:
  name: kube-registry
  namespace: kube-system
  labels:
    k8s-app: kube-registry
#    kubernetes.io/cluster-service: "true"
    kubernetes.io/name: "KubeRegistry"
spec:
  selector:
    k8s-app: kube-registry
  type: LoadBalancer
  ports:
  - name: registry
    port: 5000
    protocol: TCP

To Verify

Now you should be able to access your kube-registry from another docker host.
