Dapr Sentry control plane service overview
The Dapr Sentry service manages mTLS between services and acts as a certificate authority. It generates mTLS certificates and distributes them to any running sidecars. This allows sidecars to communicate with encrypted, mTLS traffic. For more information read the sidecar-to-sidecar communication overview.
It can also be run manually as a process if you are running in slim-init mode.
The sentry service is deployed as part of
dapr init -k, or via the Dapr Helm charts. For more information on running Dapr on Kubernetes, visit the Kubernetes hosting page.
