Effortless Mutual Authentication with Cilium
Learn how to mutually authenticate workloads with Cilium’s new features.
Mutual authentication and encryption of traffic between different workloads are must-have security features for many organizations. In a cloud native environment, this has often been achieved using service mesh proxies that perform mTLS on behalf of each application, but is there a better way?
In this demo-rich session, you'll learn about a new approach to mutually authenticating workloads that has recently been added to Cilium, the wildly popular open source connectivity solution for Kubernetes and beyond. In contrast to mTLS, this approach works for any protocol (not just those that run over TCP) and avoids the operational complexity and overhead of injecting sidecar proxies into every workload. With a pluggable interface for identity management, it simplifies the deployment of workload identities and handles concerns such as certificate rotation in a way that's completely transparent to your cloud native applications.
