Fairwinds Insights Release Notes 11.12-12.2: Spotlight on Automated Fix PRs

This month’s Fairwinds Insights release notes offer a number of bug fixes and also details of our latest enhancements to Automated Fix Pull Requests (PRs) and our new NSA Hardening Compliance Report. Automated Fix PRs allows you to automatically fix many Kubernetes misconfigurations faster, making it easier for dev teams to make misconfiguration fixes quickly and easily. 

This new feature accelerates the remediation of problems, such as security bugs and policy violations, by offering code-level fixes to common Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC) issues that often occur in Kubernetes manifests. Automated Fix PRs gives you the ability to fix multiple IaC issues with one click, then review and approve all of your changes in GitHub.To achieve this, we added permissions to our GitHub integration to write to repository contents. This only applies to repositories you connect to Insights via GitHub, and the changes will always occur on a separate branch. This enables you to review the automated fix PRs before deciding to merge.

To learn more, visit the Github permissions and Auto-Scan pages.

An analysis of IaC scans showed that this new feature can remediate at least 42% of issues automatically. Getting fixes out quickly can help your teams reduce security risks, increase reliability, and control cloud costs.

NSA Hardening Compliance Report

This month we also added a new NSA Hardening Compliance Report as part of our efforts to support people in implementing NSA recommendations for hardening Kubernetes clusters. This report is available on the Compliance page to help your organization comply with NSA Hardening recommendations. The Insights Agent can automatically check some of the compliance checks for NSA Hardening. For the remaining compliance checks, users can mark the state manually.
