Onboarding For On-Premises Customers

Prophaze KubeWAF is easily deployed as an Ingress Controller on a Kubernetes cluster to secure all traffic to ingress from outside to services within your cluster.

(a) Cluster Setup

Replace the existing ingress controller with the Prophaze KubeWAF Nginx ingress controller. Follow the below steps for the same:

Backup and remove the existing ingress controller from your cluster.

Step 1 : Go to your cluster setup page

Step 2 : In your kubernetes cluster delete the existing ingress controller

kubectl get daemonset nginx-ingress-controller (Name of nginx ingress controller) -n (Name space) ingress-nginx -o yaml >> daemonset.yaml

kubectl delete -f daemonset.yaml

Step 3 : Clone the official Prophaze Kubewaf Git Repo using command:

git clone https://gitlab.com/kubewaf/helm

Step 4 : Install the prophaze custom ingress controller using helm using the command – helm install kubewaf helm/

Step 5 : Port 6443 which is the kube-apiserver port used for the dashboard to communicate with the kubernetes cluster for the ip: 95.217.129.169 should be allowed.

Step 6 : A service account is created for the dashboard to communicate with the cluster, copy and paste the SA token in the dashboard using the execution of the following command:

kubectl get secret $(kubectl get sa prophaze-service-account -n kube-system -o jsonpath={.secrets.name}) -n kube-system -o jsonpath={.data.token} | base64 –decode

(Note down the output of this command to configure the cluster in Prophaze dashboard.)

Step 7 : The cluster is set up, all good to go.

(b) Signup Process

Step 1 : Once you are done with the registration process, you will be redirected to a set up wizard page where you can add your domain(s).
