Refer to helm [releases](<https://github.com/helm/helm/releases> "releases" ) for more information about setup helm2 --help * Then finally setup Kubernetes Goat by running the following command git clone https://github.com/madhuakula/kubernetes-goat.git cd kubernetes-goat bash setup-kubernetes-goat.sh * To export the ports/services locally to start learning, run the following command bash access-kubernetes-goat.sh * Then navigate to <http://127.0.0.1:1234> **Kubernetes Goat - KIND setup** * If you want to setup Kubernetes Goat using KIND, refer to [kind-setup](<https://github.com/madhuakula/kubernetes-goat/blob/master/kind-setup/README.md> "kind-setup" ) ** **Scenarios** ** 1. Sensitive keys in code-bases 2. DIND (docker-in-docker) exploitation 3. SSRF in K8S world 4. Container escape to access host system 5. Docker CIS Benchmarks analysis 6. Kubernetes CIS Benchmarks analysis 7. Attacking private registry 8. NodePort exposed services 9. Helm v2 tiller to PwN the cluster 10. Analysing crypto miner container 11. Kubernetes [Namespaces](<https://www.kitploit.com/search/label/Namespaces> "Namespaces" ) bypass 12. Gaining environment information 13. DoS the memory/CPU resources 14. Hacker [Container](<https://www.kitploit.com/search/label/Container> "Container" ) preview 15. Hidden in layers 16. RBAC Least Privileges Misconfiguration 17. KubeAudit - Audit Kubernetes Clusters 18. Sysdig Falco - Runtime Security Monitoring & Detection 19. Popeye - A Kubernetes Cluster Sanitizer 20.
