Best practices and questions about network configurations with Splunk Enterprise in a Kubernetes environment?

Path Finder


I'm working on ways to set up Splunk containers inside Kubernetes.  I wanted to ask here if anybody has ever done this, and if there are some gotchas I should know about.

I've heard that Kubernetes Ingress provides TLS, so the inside of a pod doesn't have to listen to encryption as a result.  How does this affect configuring the Splunk container?  Can features like SSL AND TLS be turned off? Does turning off encryption features in Splunk break anything? Is this even possible with Splunk Enterprise?

I apologize for the general, high-level type of question, but there's not a lot of documentation out there for this.

Thanks in advance.
