New features

Vulnerability Management

The StackRox Kubernetes Security Platform now features a Vulnerability Management view in the StackRox portal to help you identify, prioritize, and manage vulnerabilities across your applications and infrastructure. The Vulnerability Management view displays information you can act on and gives you a complete view of the vulnerabilities and how they relate to other entities, for example, deployments, images, and components.

Helm chart support for secured clusters

You can now use Helm charts to install Sensor, Collector, and Admission Controller. To get started, navigate to the stackrox/helm-charts repository on GitHub.

The GitHub repository includes charts for each version of the StackRox Kubernetes Security Platform, starting from version In version, we added a new image.repository.collector parameter and adjusted the default values of other parameters.

Important bug fixes

Resolved in version

  • ROX-3800: Previously, in the Violations view, the StackRox portal didn’t show enforcement actions that the StackRox Kubernetes Security Platform had taken in response to violations. The StackRox portal now correctly shows these actions.
  • ROX-4359: Previously, while adding a new authentication provider, selecting Cancel would crash the StackRox portal page if you didn’t have any other authentication providers. We’ve fixed this issue.
  • ROX-4521: Previously, in the Violations view when you selected a violation, the Policy tab of the violation details panel didn’t show the policy details. The StackRox portal now correctly shows policy details for the selected violation.

Resolved in version

  • ROX-4570: In version, the StackRox portal didn’t display CVE descriptions in the Vulnerability Management and Images views. These views now correctly show a summary of each vulnerability.
  • ROX-4575: In version, local page filtering suggestions in the StackRox portal overlapped with other parts of some views. We’ve fixed this issue.
  • ROX-4577: From versions to, when you bypassed admission controller enforcement in an emergency, the StackRox Kubernetes Security Platform would still apply scale-to-zero enforcement. We’ve fixed this issue.

Resolved in version

  • ROX-4578: We’ve fixed an issue where the StackRox Kubernetes Security Platform didn’t include new results from re-scanning images when checking compliance with your policies.

Resolved in version

  • ROX-4590: Previously, if you first installed the StackRox Kubernetes Security Platform version 2.4.21 or earlier, then eventually upgraded to version 3.0.41, StackRox Sensor would crash in each cluster until you adjusted that cluster’s dynamic configuration options in the Platform Configuration > Clusters view. We’ve resolved this issue.

Resolved in version

  • ROX-4598: Previously, StackRox Sensor crashed sometimes when processing large amounts of data, due to an internal error. We’ve resolved this issue.

Important system changes

Admission controller enforcement

The StackRox admission controller prevents users from creating workloads that violate policies you configure in the StackRox Kubernetes Security Platform. Beginning from the StackRox Kubernetes Security Platform version 3.0.41, you can also configure the admission controller to prevent updates to workloads that violate policies. For more details, see Enable admission controller enforcement.

UBI images

We’ve updated the StackRox Kubernetes Security Platform images based on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) images, from Red Hat Universal Base Image (UBI) version 7.7 to UBI version 8.1. See Use StackRox images built with UBI for more information.
