Pomerium using Helm

This quickstart will show you how to deploy Pomerium with Kubernetes. Though there are many ways to work with Kubernetes, for the purpose of this guide, we will be using Google's Kubernetes Engine. That said, most of the following steps should be very similar using any other provider.

In addition to sharing many of the same features as the Kubernetes quickstart guide, the default helm deployment script also includes a bootstrapped certificate authority enabling mutually authenticated and encrypted communication between services that does not depend on the external LetsEncrypt certificates. Having the external domain certificate de-coupled makes it easier to renew external certificates.



Download and modify the helm_gke.sh script to match your identity provider and wild-card tls certificate settings.


Run ./scripts/helm_gke.sh which will:

  1. Provision a new cluster.
  2. Create authenticate, authorize, and proxy deployments.
  3. Provision and apply authenticate, authorize, and proxy services.
  4. Configure an ingress, Google's default load balancer.
