Recorded July 19, 2022

NetworkPolicy and container networking are the foundations upon which platforms build for their networking needs. A service mesh provides a set of controls and security policies that live at the application layer. But how do these differing and potentially conflicting policies co-exist in a modern platform? 

Cilium is an exciting container-networking project that can be used to complement a service mesh like Istio. In this webinar, we’ll explore:

  • How Cilium and Istio can be implemented to work together
  • Removing confusion and conflicts that can occur around connectivity, performance, security, and observability for application networking
  • Enabling a robust set of controls over Layer 3-4 and Layer 4-7

By bringing together Cilium and Istio, we look forward to a complete application networking stack for your cloud-native journey.
