K8S Certificate Rotation, or How I learned to start worrying and never stop
Duffie Cooley, Nicholas Lane

This talk will explore the role the client, server, and cluster CA certificates play in a cluster and the ramifications of their expiration. We'll look at a cluster whose certificates have expired and what lead to that scenario. Finally, we'll look at techniques to avoid certificate expiration and how to recover an inoperable cluster.
