Release Highlights

Support Authentication and Authorization for Kube-API Endpoint for Applications On Edge Nodes

The Kube-API endpoint for edge applications is implemented through MetaServer in edegcore. However, in previous versions, the authentication and authorization of Kube-API endpoint are performed in the cloud, which prevents authentication and authorization especially in offline scenarios on the edge node.

In this release, the authentication and authorization functionalities are implemented within the MetaServer at edge, which allows for limiting the access permissions of edge applications when accessing Kube-API endpoint at edge.
