Moshe Immerman, Tushar Aggarwal at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America 2020

Image-builder is a subproject of SIG Cluster Lifecycle that was created with idea to host a number of different utilities for creating virtual machine images. It has the following goals: 1) To build images for Kubernetes-conformant clusters in a consistent way across infrastructures, providers, and business needs. 2) To provide assurances in the binaries and configuration in images for purposes of security auditing and operational stability 3) To ensure that the creation of images is performed via well defined phases. Where users could choose specific phases that they needed.
