Community Newsletter: January 2024

Hello everyone, wishing you a Happy New Year! Shwetha, here with the latest tech update. If you're eager for deeper insights and real-time updates, make sure to join our Slack community or follow us on Twitter.

Here's what's been happening in the world of Common Fate over the past month:

Common Fate Enterprise RDS Integration

We're actively working on incorporating audited, just-in-time access to AWS RDS databases within Common Fate Enterprise. Our initial focus is on supporting RDS Instances running Postgres, with plans to extend compatibility to other database technologies like MySQL and SQL Server, as well as other runtimes such as Aurora.

The RDS Database Access Integration utilizes AWS EC2 and SSM Session Manager to facilitate controlled database access. It employs a mechanism where users gain access to the database through port forwarding to an ephemeral database proxy. This proxy is responsible for logging each query, contributing to an audit trail for monitoring and compliance purposes.

If you have a specific use case or request, please don't hesitate to reach out to us or book a live demo using this link.

Granted Updates

In our ongoing commitment to enhancing Granted, we're excited to share the latest updates:

Added better error handling for oauth2 invalid_grant error

we have added better error handling for the oauth2 invalid_grant error. Now, whenever this error is encountered, Granted automatically clears the cached token and sends a message.

Fix for assume --exec with multiple arguments/spaces

The output from goassume when --exec is provided now returns the arguments with proper escaping/splitting to ensure they are evaluated when passed to sh -c in the assume script.

For a comprehensive list of updates, check our changelog.

As the year comes to an end, we want to express our gratitude for being a part of our community. We are so thankful for your support and excited to continue this journey with you into 2024, with exciting things in store. Happy holidays!

Until next time,

The Common Fate Team
