Protect Applications with Teleport

Teleport can provide secure access to applications and cloud provider APIs.

Examples include:

  • The AWS management console.
  • The aws, gcloud, gsutil, and az CLIs.
  • Applications configured for single sign-on through Okta.
  • Internal control panels.
  • Tools, such as wikis, that are available only when connected to a VPN.
  • Infrastructure dashboards, such as Kubernetes or Grafana.
  • Developer tools, such as Jenkins, GitLab, or Opsgenie.

If you are running applications on Kubernetes, you can enroll them in your Teleport cluster automatically.

Getting started

Learn how to register an application with Teleport in our getting started guide.

Cloud provider APIs

You can use Teleport to provide secure access to your cloud provider's APIs. This means that you can prevent unauthorized usage of management consoles and CLI tools with the same RBAC system you use to protect your infrastructure.

Internal applications

You can use Teleport to enable secure access to internal applications. For example, a load balancer might display network telemetry through a control panel but might lack the ability to authenticate with and be accessed by resources outside your private network.

Teleport lets team members access these resources securely, even outside a private network, with no shared secrets.

Teleport-signed JSON Web Tokens

These guides explain how web apps registered with Teleport can use Teleport-signed JSON web tokens to implement authentication and authorization.

  • Elasticsearch: How to use JWT authentication with Elasticsearch.

Okta applications

Teleport can import and grant access to Okta applications and user groups. Users can access Okta applications through the Teleport Web UI and tsh, and administrators can manage access to these applications by defining RBAC policies in Teleport roles.
