We need Keycloak for authentication and authorization. And we need Istio to secure access to our services.

In the following exercises we will:

  • Install Istio on the IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service (IKS).

  • We will use the Istio Ingress gateway to gain access to our sample application and to Keycloak externally with a DNS entry.

  • We will secure the Istio Ingress gateway with HTTPS using a certificate that is automatically generated.

  • Install Keycloak within the Istio Service Mesh.
