EKS Security Groups for Pods

EKS Security Groups for Pods

November 22, 2021

Shows show to use AWS Security Groups with Kubernetes Pods.

Wanted to mention that there are pros and cons with Pod-level security groups:

Pro: Fine-grain control over the security group for all the pods in that deployment. This allows you to target and allow access to specific app.
Con: Cost. It costs much more money to run because you'll run into limits in the network cards (ENI) and that becomes the bottleneck for scaling. It's also more complex to define this additional resource.
