Deploys k8s cluster, VM-Series for N/S and E/W inspection and guides the use of the Prisma Cloud API scan of Manifest

GCP k8s, VM-Series Firewall, and Prisma-Cloud-API LAB

This lab will guide through deploying a Terraform template that creates a Kubernetes(k8s) cluster and Palo Alto Networks VM-Series firewall into an existing GCP project. After successfully deploying the terraform template, the following infrastructure will be instantiated:


Then the lab will then guide through the use of the Prisma Public Cloud API Scanning of a container image and K8s Manifest file.


Finally the scanned manifest file will used to deploy a two tier application to the k8s cluster and walk through visibility of both North/South and select East/West traffic flows. The following diagram shows the deployed pods with the traffic flows:


Support Policy

The guide in this directory and accompanied files are released under an as-is, best effort, support policy. These scripts should be seen as community supported and Palo Alto Networks will contribute our expertise as and when possible. We do not provide technical support or help in using or troubleshooting the components of the project through our normal support options such as Palo Alto Networks support teams, or ASC (Authorized Support Centers) partners and backline support options. The underlying product used (the VM-Series firewall) by the scripts or templates are still supported, but the support is only for the product functionality and not for help in deploying or using the template or script itself. Unless explicitly tagged, all projects or work posted in our GitHub repository (at https://github.com/PaloAltoNetworks) or sites other than our official Downloads page on https://support.paloaltonetworks.com are provided under the best effort policy.
