In this session, we will go over the core concepts in k8s network policies and calico network policies. Compare and contrast between the two models, and highlight when to use one versus the other.

Key Takeaways:

  • How Kubernetes Network Policy enables applications to declare segmentation controls to restrict access to authorized workloads
  • Why Calico Network Policy is a sophisticated superset of Kubernetes network policy and the advanced policy features that facilitate real world use cases
  • How Calico scales in very large-scale production deployments while remaining simple to use and operate
