To enable Carbon Black Container, you must install one Carbon Black Kubernetes Sensor for each Kubernetes cluster. To do so, you must add a cluster to the console.

A Kubernetes extension called Operator and a custom resource definition are used to deploy the Kubernetes Sensor. Operators consist of set of controllers that deploy and manage user-defined components and report on their health. You define the components with a custom resource definition.

The Carbon Black operator deploys the Kubernetes Sensor inside the cluster and manages its lifecycle. The data in the custom resource file defines which features are enabled for the sensor. The essential steps of the sensor deployment procedure are:

  • Setup and install the Carbon Black Operator
  • Deploy the Carbon Black Agent on top of the Operator.
  • Allow access to the Carbon Black Cloud console
  • Configure the Kubernetes Sensor and scanner
