What is Rancher Government Carbide?
Rancher Government Carbide is an add-on support service to the existing Rancher products suite that delivers cutting-edge capabilities to ensure software supply chain security and support federal security compliance requirements. Carbide simplifies Kubernetes management by providing a better, more standardized way for users to verify and validate software. Its pipelines utilize tools for vulnerability scanning and generating SBOMs.
*Carbide supports the Rancher MCM 2.7 and RKE2, the only Kubernetes management platform and distribution with STIGS validated and published by DISA.
RGS Carbide is built to:
Software Supply Chain Security
CSR enables software supply chain security by providing a centralized secure container registry to end users, validated by a secured signing key.
*Enabled by Carbide Secured Registry (CSR).
Carbide provides full, airgap capable access to documentation for the entire Rancher product suite, including Carbide.
At Rancher Government Solutions, the edge is a first-class citizen. Rather than retrofitting tools to work in an edge environment, Rancher Technologies are built for the edge from the start.
Automating the STIG Compliance Assessment
STIGATRON is a Day 2 Operations compliance tool within Carbide built to validate downstream clusters from the centralized Rancher Multi-Cluster Manager. By automatically scanning downstream clusters and comparing them to the STIG cluster, STIGATRON alleviates the obstacles system administrators face in the validation process, enabling compliance with the security standards of the federal government.
DISA STIG Certification
Rancher Government Solutions is the only company with approved Kubernetes management platform and distribution STIGs officially recognized and published by DISA (MCM 2.6 & RKE2).
