Running CTFs and Security Trainings with OWASP Juice Shop is usually quite tricky, Juice Shop just isn't intended to be used by multiple users at a time. Instructing everybody how to start Juice Shop on their own machine works ok, but takes away too much valuable time.
MultiJuicer gives you the ability to run separate Juice Shop instances for every participant on a central kubernetes cluster, to run events without the need for local Juice Shop instances.
What it does:
MultiJuicer runs on kubernetes, to install it you'll need helm.
helm repo add multi-juicer https://iteratec.github.io/multi-juicer/ helm install multi-juicer multi-juicer/multi-juicer
See production notes for a checklist of values you'll likely need to configure before using MultiJuicer in proper events.
Generally MultiJuicer runs on pretty much any kubernetes cluster, but to make it easier for anybody who is new to kubernetes we got some guides on how to setup a kubernetes cluster with MultiJuicer installed for some specific Cloud providers.
You got some options on how to setup the stack, with some option to customize the JuiceShop instances to your own liking. You can find the default config values under: helm/multi-juicer/values.yaml
Download & Save the file and tell helm to use your config file over the default by running:
helm install -f values.yaml multi-juicer ./multi-juicer/helm/multi-juicer/
helm delete multi-juicer
To be on the safe side calculate with:
The numbers above reflect the default resource limits. These can be tweaked, see: Customizing the Setup
There is no real fixed limit. (Even thought you can configure one ) The custom LoadBalancer, through which all traffic for the individual Instances flows, can be replicated as much as you'd like. You can also attach a Horizontal Pod Autoscaler to automatically scale the LoadBalancer.
There are some special requirements which we didn't find to be easily solved with any pre build load balancer:
If you have awesome ideas on how to overcome these issues without a custom load balancer, please write us, we'd love to hear from you!
There are some pretty good reasons for this:
You can list all JuiceShops with relevant information using the custom-columns feature of kubectl. You'll need to down load the juiceShop.txt from the repository first:
kubectl get -l app=juice-shop -o custom-columns-file=juiceShop.txt deployments
