Re: landscape, spiffe, opa, vault

+1 to this framing, particularly to its cross-cutting nature. While I agree 'security' is a natural starting bucket, the value propositions these (and other) projects address go beyond this (over time).

Visually, perhaps the TOC should consider a "AAA" box (or something more elegantly worded) to the right (or left) of 'Service Management'?

+1 to the Authentication (SPIFFE, spire), Authorization (OPA), Audit (?).  Classically these are part of Security, but there's no box for that.  

AAA is typically cross-cutting.  OPA, for example, has integrations with Kube (orchestration), Istio (app), Terraform (provisioning), AWS (cloud).

Similar functions have often been classified as "AAA" in traditional systems (Authentication, Authorization, Accounting). I agree that no box really captures these well today - the closest are likely 'coordination and service discover' or perhaps 'service management'. I'd imagine 'service management' is the the likely best current home... Istio is listed there as well today (most adjacent to these projects today).

Do others agree?

I think OPA belongs in the top layer but I don't think it fits in any of the existing subcategories.  In fact I feel that way about all three.

All,

Question about the landscape.


- do we want to put OPA in the top layer, either inside, or next to App Def?
- what about identity - spiffe and spire?
- do we think key management should move to top layer?
