The Kubernetes network model defines a flat network in which pod connectivity is unimpeded, with no restrictions on what traffic is allowed to or from each pod. To make a cluster production ready you need to make this networking secure. Network Policy is the primary tool for doing this and is essential to understand before considering moving a cluster to production.
In this training session we will cover:
– What Network Policy is and how it works
– Common use cases for Network Policy
– How to secure a Kubernetes cluster using Calico, installed using the Project Calico operator
– Live demo of using Network Policies in action in a Kubernetes cluster
A Calico Enterprise trial is available after this session and you will be able to practice these use cases on your own within a hosted lab.
