Having the Helm support means the Helm images or Helm charts are scanned for security issues and those can limit the role-based access control with enterprise integration. So, if someone is a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) user, they can maintain all their users and all their rules in LDAP, which can be mapped into Mirantis Secure Registry, the image scanning capabilities, creating promotion pipelines, using notary to create signed images as part of the secure supply chain. Chris Price, Director of Engineering at Mirantis, explains the benefits further in this video.
