Release Summary

Styra is built on the Open Policy Agent (OPA), a popular and widely deployed open source project developed by the founders of Styra. With primary credibility for the underlying technology, the Styra team and technology are both proven in production across verticals. Styra enables enterprises to define, enforce, validate, and continually monitor security, compliance and operational policies across the cloud-native application stack. Styra has reinvented the authorization solutions to mitigate customer risk, and reinforce commitment to trust and transparency in safeguarding customers’ data. Styra’s Declarative Authorization Service (DAS) is a sophisticated management plane that provides context-based guardrail, built from a graphical policy library to mitigate risk, reduce human error and accelerate development. Styra makes it possible for enterprises to implement policy-as-code controls and to prove their effectiveness to both internal and external security and compliance audiences.

New Features and Enhancements

This section describes the New Features and Enhancements in Styra DAS 20200717.

Security

  • Signature support for Git datasource and bundle downloads: This release includes limited support for OPA digital signatures to provide end-to-end policy and data integrity. The signatures are imported from Git and included in the downloaded bundles for OPA to verify.

Storage

  • Upgrade the API version for validating and mutating webhooks: In order to generate the deprecated v1beta1 version of the webhook configurations, the Kubernetes version of the system must be set to a version number that is less than 1.16.0. This release upgrades the webhook API version to conform to apiVersion: admissionregistration.k8s.io/v1 by default.
