General availability: Just-In-Time Access support in AKS
Published date: 02 March, 2021
Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) now supports Just-In-Time (JIT) access for tasks that require elevated permissions.
Having standing access by some users to sensitive information or critical network configuration settings in AKS is a potential pathway to compromised accounts or internal threat activities. Privileged access management helps protect your organization from breaches and helps to meet compliance best practices by limiting standing access to sensitive data or access to critical configuration settings. Instead of administrators having constant access, AKS now allows you to implement Just-In-Time (JIT) access rules for tasks that need elevated permissions.
