We’re excited to announce today's release of Scytale Enterprise (SE) 1.4. SE is the cloud-native enterprise service identity platform. It enables enterprise security and infrastructure engineers to continuously assess the integrity of services running on distributed cloud and container-based IT environments, ensuring that only trusted services can mutually authenticate.

This second release of SE in October includes the following key capabilities: 

  • Reliably authenticate services running on Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS): SE brings its multi-factor service authentication engine to services running on Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS). This complements SE’s existing support for services running in EKS (Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Services), and GKE (Google Kubernetes Engine ), and on-premise Kubernetes deployments. 
  • Easily audit and trace errors with contextual logs grouped by identity requests: SE now enables operators to easily see detailed information about how and where short-lived credentials (such as service tickets) were issued, including:

    - When a ticket was generated, for which principal and for how long the ticket is valid.

    - When the ticket was actually returned to a workload with a particular SPIFFE ID.

    - Any metadata known about the workload at the time, including attributes we measured in order to perform attestation for that SPIFFE ID. 
  • Securely access credentials from a Ruby application: Developers can now securely obtain credentials from Ruby code through SE’s Credential API. 
    In addition to several minor usability enhancements, SE’s Hashicorp Vault 'custom' connector goes beta and technical documentation is now accessible from within the console.
