Teleport is an integrated access solution designed for DevOps teams to secure and simplify access to SSH and Windows servers, Kubernetes clusters, databases, and web applications. With Teleport, users can move away from static credentials to ephemeral certificates backed by hardware identity, reducing phishing risks and enhancing security with Zero Trust architecture.
- Identity-Based Access: Replace static credentials with short-lived certificates for all protocols, reducing the chance of credential theft and unauthorized access.
- Single Sign-On (SSO): Streamline your workflow with SSO integration for services like GitHub, Okta, Active Directory via OpenID Connect or SAML.
- Audit Logging: Maintain comprehensive records of all user sessions with session replay capabilities for various protocols.
- Role-Based Access Control (RBAC): Enforce least privilege principles and manage permissions across your infrastructure from a single place.
- Multifactor Authentication (MFA): Enhance security by requiring a second form of verification from users, preventing unauthorized access.
- Easy Deployment: Deploy Teleport as a Linux daemon or Kubernetes service with just two binaries - the Teleport agent and the tsh client.
- Infrastructure Introspection: Gain visibility into your infrastructure's status with Teleport's CLI or Web UI, checking on every node, cluster, or application in real-time.
- Tunneling System: Establish secure tunnels to access resources behind firewalls or in private networks without exposing them to the public internet.
- Passwordless Authentication: Move towards a more secure and frictionless authentication method that eliminates the need for passwords altogether.
- Cross-platform Compatibility: Fully compatible with OpenSSH servers and clients, enabling seamless integration into existing infrastructure.
Suggested Developer Use Cases
- Leverage Teleport's SSO capabilities to integrate secure access across multiple cloud environments and streamline developer operations without compromising on security.
- Incorporate Teleport's audit features into compliance workflows to ensure that all access events are logged and can be reviewed in accordance with industry regulations.
- Utilize Teleport's RBAC system when building multi-tenant applications to provide each tenant with secure, isolated access while maintaining centralized control over permissions.
