Styra DAS is the control plane for OPA. You run OPA wherever you want and then connect it to Styra DAS as its management/control plane. (For the Free/Pro versions you can only use OPA as a Kubernetes Admission Controller, but for the Enterprise you can run any OPA integration.) For all communication, OPA reaches out to DAS over HTTPS and authenticates with a bearer token. (We configure all this for you if you follow the installation instructions provided by the DAS).
Where does OPA run and how does it communicate with Styra DAS? Print
