The cert-manager project has a number of satellite projects that extend the project's functionality, and complement the core cert-manager feature-set.
These tools help with security, compliance and control.
- istio-csr: Secure Istio service mesh with istio-csr which is an agent that allows for Istio workload and control plane components to be secured using cert-manager.
- approver-policy: a cert-manager approver that will automatically approve or deny certificate requests based on defined policy.
- trust: an operator to distribute trust bundles, like CA certificates, across a Kubernetes cluster.
