Quick start

Installing Soveren is extremely simple:

  1. Deploy the Soveren Sensor in your Kubernetes cluster using our Helm chart.

  2. Go to the Soveren app in the Soveren Cloud and start getting insights!

Step-by-step procedure

Before you proceed with the installation, we recommend reviewing our requirements and recommendations page.

  1. Decide which type of Soveren Sensor you need:

    Discovers services in your Kubernetes clusters and identifies sensitive data in data flows between them.

    Monitors data sources such as S3 buckets, databases, and Kafka clusters, and uncovers sensitive data stored within.

  2. Create a new Soveren token and have it handy for the following steps. This token identifies and authorizes your Sensor within the Soveren Cloud.

  3. Create a namespace for Soveren installation:

    kubectl create namespace soverenio
    
    kubectl create namespace soverenio-dar-sensor
    
  4. Add the Soveren Helm repository:

    helm repo add soveren https://soverenio.github.io/helm-charts
    
  5. Configure the Sensor

    For DIM sensors, this step is optional. However, you might want to explore the configuration or security options to ensure optimal performance and protection.

    For DAR sensors, you must explicitly configure connectivity for S3, Kafka and databases.

    Additionally, you might want to review the configuration and security options to enhance functionality and ensure data protection.

  6. Install the Soveren Sensor using the <TOKEN> that you obtained in step 2:

    helm install -n soverenio soveren-agent soveren/soveren-agent --set digger.token="<TOKEN>"
    
    helm install -n soverenio-dar-sensor soveren-dar-sensor soveren/soveren-dar-sensor --set crawler.token="<TOKEN>"
    
  7. That's it! You may go to the Soveren app now and check the dashboards.

Fine print

For more advanced configuration options please take a look at the configuration page. There is also a separate description of the security options.
