Question

Better k8s firewall control

Are there plans to allow for better k8s firewall management?

It looks like fw is auto-generated when k8s clusters are created. I’d like to create my own with its own rules and have them auto-assign (or manually-assign) to clusters and/or pools.

I think I can sort of do this through tags, but the cluster with the tag needs to be created first, and I’m not sure this is working at the pool-level or not. Would be great to have some clarification.

I also want to know if the firewalls will always keep getting recreated by k8s and what is needed from them. I would like to not have it open everything to the world by default.
