Look inside

The security group at EC-O, an e-commerce organization that sells products for outdoor enthusiasts, wants to secure their newly deployed AKS cluster. As EC-O’s DevOps engineer, your job is to configure the AKS cluster with the appropriate level of security and Azure Active Directory integration, enforcing a role-based cluster access policy. You’ll update the Terraform files associated with the AKS cluster, test the deployment process, and update the production cluster. By the end of this project, you’ll have a secure AKS cluster—and the peace of mind that comes with it—thanks to your skillful use of RBAC and Azure Active Directory.

This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.
