Setting up authentication for Tanzu Application Platform

There are multiple ways to set up authentication for your Tanzu Application Platform deployment. You can manage authentication at the infrastructure level with your Kubernetes provider, such as Tanzu Kubernetes Grid, EKS, AKS, or GKE.

VMware recommends Pinniped for integrating your identity management into Tanzu Application Platform on multicloud. It provides many supported integrations for widely used identity providers. To use Pinniped, see Installing Pinniped on a single cluster and Logging in using Pinniped.
