Traditionally there have been very clear battle lines drawn for application and infrastructure deployment. When you need to run a Virtual Machine, you run it on your virtualization platform (Openstack, VMWare, etc.) and when you need to run a container workload, you run it on your container platform (Kubernetes). But when you’re deploying your application, do you really care where it runs? Or do you just care that it runs somewhere?
This is where I entered this discussion and I quickly realized that in most cases, I really didn’t care. What I knew was that I needed to have the things I required to build my application or run my training. I also knew that if I could avoid having to manage multiple sets of automation — that would be an even bigger benefit. So if I could have both running within a single platform, I was absolutely on board to give it a shot.

In the previous part of the series, we explored Open Policy Agent and implemented an ACL-based access control for our application. In this entry, I am going to share with you some of the discoveries that I made while evaluating Open Policy Agent in regards to policy design and development.

Recently I was looking for a way to implement access control for microservices. I needed a solution that would allow defining complex authorization rules that could be enforced across many services. After searching the web, I discovered a very promising Open Policy Agent project that seems to be the right tool for the job. In this series of three blog posts, I am going to introduce Open Policy Agent to you and highlight how it can help you.

I’m not a software engineer. I don’t know what a container, stack or kernel is, and I find even trying to describe an API a bit like trying to explain the offside rule. And until May 2016, I had never heard of “Open Source”.
