Securing Microservices with Network Policy

Presented by

Matthew DeLio, Kubernetes and Container Engine Product Manager, Google & Casey Davenport, Software Engineer, Tigera

About this talk

Orchestrated container environments, such as Google Container Engine, are great for easily enabling highly agile, dynamic deployment of micro-service based applications. However, sooner or later your security ops team will ask: how do you plan to ensure network isolation (sometimes known as micro-segmentation) in this environment, when workloads are being rapidly and automatically created and destroyed? The Kubernetes community, including leaders from Google and Tigera, have collaborated to define a standard Network Policy API, and now for the first time are making that available in Google Container Engine using Project Calico, the leading open source container networking solution from Tigera. Hear from the people behind this exciting development when and why you would need it, with practical pointers as to how to get started defining policies for your own application running in GKE.
