Restricting traffic to kube-proxy only from trusted networks

dev

As of kubernetes 0.8.0, there's no official way to restrict traffic to kube-proxy.

I'm using the following iptables rule to restrict traffic only from local network and docker containers.

# These rules should be before `-j KUBE-PORTALS-CONTAINER` and `-j KUBE-PORTALS-HOST`
-t nat -A PREROUTING -i docker0 -d YOUR_PORTAL_NET j MARK --set-mark 8820
-t nat -A PREROUTING -s YOUR_LOCAL_NET -d YOUR_PORTAL_NET -j MARK --set-mark 8820
-t nat -A OUTPUT -s YOUR_LOCAL_NET -d YOUR_PORTAL_NET -j MARK --set-mark 8820
# Allow marked packets
-A INPUT -i docker0 -m mark --mark YOUR_FAVORITE_MARK -j ACCEPT
-A INPUT -s YOUR_LOCAL_NET -m mark --mark YOUR_FAVORITE_MARK -j ACCEPT

Replace YOUR_LOCAL_NET with your local network (e.g. 192.168.0.0/24), and YOUR_PORTAL_NET with your kube-apiserver's -portal_net configuration.
