KubeCon Announcement and Linux Foundation Update On Tuesday during KubeCon, the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) announced the Certified Kubernetes Security Specialist certification is now generally available. The announcement confirmed important information that we previously outlined in our most recent blog detailing the CKS. Thanks to the updates from the Linux Foundation documentation, the updated exam structure is: 2 hours long Require a passing score of 67% 15-20 performance-based tasks Uses Kubernetes version 1.
What is the Certified Kubernetes Security Specialist (CKS)? The CKS is the third Kubernetes based certification backed by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). CKS will join the existing Certified Kubernetes Administrator (CKA) and Certified Kubernetes Application Developer (CKAD) programs. All three certifications are online, proctored, performance-based exams that will require solving multiple Kubernetes security tasks from the command line. With the massive investment into Kubernetes over the last five years, these certifications continue to be highly sought after by many seeking technical knowledge about Kubernetes.
