Welcome from the organizers

Real world Istio - War stories and Gotchas
- by Lasse Højgaard & Frederik Mogensen - Software Pilots - Trifork
In a public health care project requirements for security and data protection are very rigid - can Istio help us solve these requirements? And at what cost?
We will talk about using Istio for running a multi-tenant setup, allowing the different tenants to talk to the core services on the platform, but not disrupting each other.
Enforcing security between services using the service mesh, by demanding JWT tokens on all requests, adding mutual encryption, locking down egress traffic, disallowing inter-namespace traffic, etc.
We’ll share our experiences running Istio, war stories, bugs found, and failures.

Kubernetes Ingress Controllers
- by Søren Døssing, Infrastructure Architect - Netic'
The Kubernetes ingress controller is a critical component for routing of ingress traffic to internal workloads. Kubernetes does not have a native ingress controller, so as administrator you have to make a choice of which product to load and operate. In this session we'll take an in-depth look at several ingress controller and compare features and performance.
