Kyverno is a policy engine designed for Kubernetes, where policies are managed as Kubernetes resources rather than with some domain-specific language. Kyverno policies can be managed by kubectl, git, and kustomize just like app deployments. Kyverno policies can validate, mutate, and generate Kubernetes resources plus ensure OCI image supply chain security, among other things.
Big Bang Touch Points📜
Data from Kyverno is not stored by the app directly, it is stored as objects in the Kubernetes API.
When deploying to k3d, istio-system should be added from
excludedNamespaces under the
allowedDockerRegistries violations. This can be done by modifying
chart/values.yaml file or passing an override file with the values set as seen below. This is for development purposes only: production should not allow containers in the
istio-system namespace to be pulled from outside of Registry1.
kyvernoPolicies: values: exclude: any: # Allows k3d load balancer to bypass policies. - resources: namespaces: - istio-system names: - svclb-*
High availability is accomplished by increasing the replicas in the values file of this helm chart. The recommended replica counts for HA is at least 3 which is enabled by default in BigBang chart.

Kyverno Reporter is an optional component providing two main reporting functions:
* Providing a metrics endpoint which can be used to observe in monitoring tools like Grafana.
* Reporting Kyverno policy violations to various configurable
targets, including Grafana Loki, Elasticsearch, Slack, Discord or MS Teams.

Kyverno Reporter UI📜
While not yet officially supported by BigBang the Kyverno Reporter can be useful for inspecting policy results when other tools like Grafana are not available or in debugging scenarios.
