Topic Summary 

Modern apps are built around microservices, linked by a complex mesh of connections. Cloud native orchestrators like Kubernetes enable developers to describe the connectivity requirements of their pods using intent-based documents called network policy. Network policy enables zero trust and satisfies security models that microservices communications require. In this session, we will cover the  Kubernetes networking stack, network policy with Project Calico and application service mesh. Also a demo will be shown to reinforce the concepts.

About Christopher Liljenstolpe

Christopher is the CTO and co-founder of Tigera, Inc, and the original architect of Project Calico. Before devoting his life to making cloud networking simple and secure, he gained plenty of practical experience in how it was not ever thus, designing and running several OpenStack clusters, and architecting some of the earliest SDN solutions at Big Switch Networks. He also ran architecture at two large carriers (Telstra - AS1221, and Cable & Wireless/iMCI - AS3561), spent time in Asia as the IP CTO for Alcatel, and run networks in Antarctica (hint, bend radius becomes REALLY important at -50C). In his spare time he was foolish enough to do two stints as a working group co-chair in the IETF. Occasionally you can have the (mis-)fortune of hearing him speak at conferences and the like.

Looking forward to seeing you!
