What is the Kubeflow Unauth module?

The Kubeflow Unauth module is a module designed to detect misconfigurations related to unauthenticated access in the Kubeflow platform. Kubeflow is an open-source machine learning platform that allows users to deploy and manage machine learning workflows. This module focuses on identifying vulnerabilities in the authentication mechanisms of Kubeflow, which could potentially lead to unauthorized access to sensitive data and resources.

This module has a severity level of high, indicating that the detected misconfigurations can pose significant risks to the security of the Kubeflow platform.


If the Kubeflow Unauth module detects a misconfiguration, it means that the Kubeflow platform is vulnerable to unauthenticated access. This can result in unauthorized users gaining access to sensitive data, manipulating machine learning workflows, or even causing disruptions to the entire system. The impact of such unauthorized access can be severe, leading to data breaches, compromised machine learning models, and potential financial and reputational damages.

How the module works?

The Kubeflow Unauth module works by sending HTTP requests to the Kubeflow platform and analyzing the responses based on predefined matching conditions. It checks for specific patterns in the response body, headers, and status codes to determine if a misconfiguration related to unauthenticated access exists.

For example, one of the HTTP requests sent by this module is a GET request to the "/pipeline/apis/v1beta1/runs?page_size=5&sort_by=created_at%20desc" endpoint. It expects the response body to contain the following words: {"runs":[{"id": and resource_references. Additionally, it checks if the response header includes the word application/json and if the response status code is 200.

If all the matching conditions are met, the Kubeflow Unauth module reports a vulnerability, indicating that unauthenticated access is possible in the Kubeflow platform.
