Installation Tools

Installation tools that are required for integrations built on the Falco core

Scripted install

To install Falco on Linux, you can download a shell script that takes care of the necessary steps:

curl -o install_falco -s

Then verify the SHA256 checksum of the script using the sha256sum tool (or something analogous):

sha256sum install_falco

It should be 59201c1339cc53e86edcd7d2e7273e52f784b3cf7d4a3142059112b3b9062f6d.

Then run the script either as root or with sudo:

sudo bash install_falco


You can install Falco in Kubernetes using Helm. The Falco community supports a helm chart and documentation on how to use it can be found here.

See Installing Helm for information about how to download and install Helm.

Kubernetes Manifests

It is possible to deploy Falco in Kubernetes simply by using the kubectl tool and deploying Kubernetes manifests. For further details, you can find an example here.
