Workshop: Getting Access

We organize periodic workshops to introduce to SCONE. If you want to participate in such a workshop, send an email to

During the workshop, we will provide you with access to

  • a gitlab instance that is used to store and pull container images. You can use your own registry if you prefer.
  • a shared Kubernetes cluster to execute the tutorial. You could also use your own Kubernetes cluster, if you prefer. You can install the prerequisites for your Kubernetes cluster with sconectl init. Ensure that you install LAS, Plugin, CAS, and the pull secrets. See sconectl init --help for how to do this.


Ensure that you have a VPN connection to our Kubernetes cluster. We provide the VPN information separately by email or print out. The VPN will only work during the workshop.

Gitlab Access

As part of the tutorial, you need to get access to a set of container images required to build confidential services and confidential applications. Moreover, you need to be able to push your generated images to a container image repository. If you have your own image repository, you can use this repository to push and pull your generated container images.

We allocated for each participant a user ID on and generated a personal access token. We provide you with this personal access token to pull and push container images during the workshop. We will disable the users after the workshop. If you use your existing user ID for, we need to make you a member of group workshop.

Kubernetes Config

We allocated for each participant a Kubernetes namespace in a Kubernetes cluster. Please store this in $HOME/.kube/config (save the existing config and restore this after the workshop). We provide you with this personal access token to pull and push container images from/to This access token should already be installed in your Kubernetes namespace, i.e., you do not need to install any new Kubernetes pull secrets in your namespace.

Code Access

The code repository scone_mesh_tutorial is public. Clone the main branch by executing:

git clone
