Deploy the CN-Series Firewalls

After you review the CN-Series Core Building Blocks, and the high-level overview of the workflow in Secure Kubernetes Workloads with CN-Series you can start with deploying the CN-Series firewalls to secure traffic between containers within the same cluster, and between containers and other workload types, such as virtual machines and bare-metal servers.
If you on the OpenShift environment, see Deploy the CN-Series on OpenShift and for securing 5G traffic, see Secure 5G With the CN-Series Firewall.
You need standard Kubernetes tools such as kubectl or Helm to deploy and manage your Kubernetes clusters, apps, and firewall services. Panorama is not designed to be an orchestrator for Kubernetes cluster deployment and management. Templates for cluster management are provided by Managed Kubernetes providers; Palo Alto Networks provides community-supported templates for deploying CN-Series with Helm and Terraform.
Before moving from deploying CN-Series as a DaemonSet to CN-Series as a Service or vice versa, you must delete and reapply
plugin-serviceaccount.yaml
.
  • When you deploy CN-Series as a DaemonSet
    pan-plugin-cluster-mode-secret
    must not exist.
  • When you deploy CN-Series as a Kubernetes service
    pan-plugin-cluster-mode-secret
    must be present.
