About this event

Allo et bonne année 2018 !

We are excited to announce our first meetup of this year - an awesome opportunity to hear LADIES talking about Kubernetes. We also have a CNCF ambassador joining us. Hope to see you there! Talk #1: Lyft Migration to Envoy and our next steps of integrating Kubernetes by Constance Caramanolis, Software Engineer on the Server Networking Team

Talk #2: 1.9 Update by Archy

Talk #3: Cilium: Application-Aware Security for Microservices via BPF by Cynthia Thomas at Covalent.io

BPF (Berkeley Packet Filter) is becoming the fastest growing technology in the Linux kernel and is revolutionizing networking, security, and tracing. At the same time, the rise of container-based orchestration platforms such as Kubernetes is creating demand for routing, load-balancing & security infrastructure that is highly scalable, application-aware, and resilient. This talk introduces the open source project Cilium - a modern networking and security platform for microservices. Cilium is built on top of BPF and provides Linux native networking and security services with application protocol awareness. Cilium works hand in hand with application proxies such as Envoy and the services management orchestration layer Istio to provide infrastructure services in a transparent manner and with minimal overhead. This talk will discuss the challenges of exposing services via APIs and the solution that Cilium provides to enforce least privilege security. Twitter: @ciliumproject
