Installing in an Air-gapped Environment

Air-gapped Environment Support is an Enterprise Feature

Kubeshark requires a valid ENTERPRISE license to operate in an air-gapped environment.

Getting a Trial ENTERPRISE License

To get an ENTERPRISE license, you first need an account in the Admin Console, which is used to manage licenses. By default, a complimentary PRO license will be provisioned upon sign-up.

A PRO license requires an active internet connection and cannot function properly in an air-gapped environment.

Once you have an account, reach out to us using the contact-us form and let us know the email used to create the account in the Admin Console. We will convert the complimentary PRO license to an ENTERPRISE license and notify you once the license is ready to use.

To retrieve your license, please log in to the Admin Console and follow the instructions to properly set your license.

Docker Registry

To pull a specific version or the latest of the following Docker images from, visit:

Then, push these images to your local Docker registry and update the appropriate configuration, including the registry address and, if necessary, the secret for pulling images from your local repository.

Disabling Internet-Dependent Features

While not mandatory, in air-gapped environments, it is advisable to disable Telemetry.

Configuration Example

Below is an example and guidelines for configuring your local Docker registry, disabling the aforementioned features, and managing your license:

    registry: <local-registry-address>
    imagePullSecrets: [ <secret> ]
    enabled: false
license: <your-enterprise-license>

Alternatively, you can add the following directives to your command line as a second option:

--set tap.telemetry.enabled=false \
--set license=<your-enterprise-license> \
--set tap.docker.registry=<local-registry-address> \
--set-json 'tap.docker.imagePullSecrets=["<secret>"]'
