6:30pm - registration and networking

Talk 1: Application traffic policies and security analytics in Kubernetes - Akshay Mathur (A10 Networks)


Talk 2: A deep dive into Kubernetes Networking - Daniele Polencic (learnk8s)

* Application traffic policies and security analytics in Kubernetes

In this talk we will study cloud native network load balancing and in particular, how to ensure:

- Application Traffic Policy enforcement for East-West traffic
- Visibility and Analytics for East-West as well as North-South Traffic
- Advanced Application-layer load balancing
- Centralised configuration management for distributed load balancers

* Kubernetes Chaos Engineering: Lessons Learned in Networking

When you deploy an application in Kubernetes, your code ends up running on one or more worker nodes. A node may be a physical machine or VM such as AWS EC2 or Google Compute Engine and having several of them means you can run and scale your application across instances efficiently. When there is an incoming request, the cluster routes the traffic to one of the nodes using a network proxy. But what happens when network proxy crashes? Does the cluster still work? Can Kubernetes recover from the failure?
In this talk, you'll learn how the traffic is distributed within a Kubernetes cluster and what happens when the network proxy is misbehaving.
