Of course providing pod networking and facilitating service discovery are great! But open source Calico’s real super power is its ability to implement network security policies inside your cluster. Most external network security operates at the perimeter or at the physical network layer of Kubernetes. Calico runs inside Kubernetes and can provide policy and security based on Kubernetes structures like namespaces and deployments. This talk will show you the basics of implementing these types of policies for several types of security and compliance use cases. Equal emphasis will also be given to why implementing these types of security policies is so important to keeping our ever-expanding Kubernetes workloads secure.
