This quickstart will show you how to deploy Pomerium with Kubernetes. Though there are countless ways to work with Kubernetes, for the purpose of this guide, we will be using Google's Kubernetes Engine. That said, most of the following steps should be very similar using any other provider.



Retrieve the latest copy of pomerium's source-code by cloning the repository.

git clone https://github.com/pomerium/pomerium.git $HOME/pomerium


Edit ./scripts/kubernetes_gke.sh making sure to change the identity provider secret value to match your identity provider settings.

Place your domain's wild-card TLS certificate (privkey.pem and cert.pem) in the root of the repository. If you don't have one handy, the included script generates one from LetsEncrypt.


Run ./scripts/kubernetes_gke.sh which will:

  1. Provision a new cluster
  2. Create authenticate, authorize, and proxy deployments.
  3. Provision and apply authenticate, authorize, and proxy services.
  4. Configure an ingress load balancer.
sh ./scripts/kubernetes_gke.sh

You should see roughly the following in your terminal. Note, provisioning does take a few minutes.


And if you check out Google's Kubernetes Engine dashboard you'll see something like:

Open a browser and navigate to httpbin.your.domain.com.

You should see something like the following in your browser.
