Before running Traefik, you have to create a role on vault, to get a Consul token for traefik. This token will be used by Traefik to query consul service catalog and adjust routes dynamicaly
vault write consul/roles/traefik consul_policies=traefik ttl=72h max_ttl=168h
IP whitelist / blacklist
The job support getting lists of IP addresses/CIDR dynamycally from Consul K/V store. To create a new list, go on Consul Key/Value from the web interface, in common/ip (create the tree if needed), then create an entry. For example, an entry named trusted, with the following content:
- 10.99.9.1 # fw-dc for healthcheck - 192.168.7.0/24 # Private LAN - 10.99.20.0/24 # VPN roadwarriors - 10.99.23.0/24 # VPN Wireguard
Format it as a YAML document. Now, as soon as you save this, a new middleware named ip-trusted@file will be available on Traefik, and can be used by routers to protect sensitive applications. You can also include an IP list in another one. For example, another IP list named admin could contain
- include:trusted - 10.29.0.0/16
Now the ip-admin@file middleware contains all the IP of the trusted list, plus 10.29.0.0/16
Basic authentication middlewares
You can configure basic auth middlewares by putting user/password in vault. For example
vault kv put kv/service/traefik/basicauth/monitoring john='S3cr3t.' marie='p@ssw0rd'
Then, a basicauth-monitoring@file middleware will be automaticaly created and available for routers to protect the app you want. The password can be either plain text, or an already bcrypt encrypted password (starting with
Note that while creating new or updating existing basicauth entry will be reloaded without a need to restart Traefik, it can take up to 5 min for the change to propagate.
The job support running a Lemonldap::NG handler, but in a very specific configuration only for now. You have to use a MySQL or MariaDB for the config and the sessions, and this DB must be reachable through the Consul service mesh. Then you need to enable support for the handler, in your variables.yml file
lemonldap: enabled: True db: service_name: mariadb user: lemonldap db: lemonldap
And the password for the DB is stored in vault
vault kv put kv/service/traefik llng_handler_db_pwd='ThisIsNotAVeryStrongPassword'
