# Kubesec

Note: Kubesec is not installed by default. Its findings overlap heavily with Polaris. We recommend using one or the other.

Kubesec (opens new window) is an open source tool for assessing the security risk of Kubernetes workloads based on their YAML configuration.

# Remediation

Remediating Kubesec issues involves editing the Helm chart or YAML for your workloads. This is probably stored in an infrastructure-as-code repository. Once you've made the necessary changes, you'll need to redeploy.
