How Istio integrates with Calico to enable network policy enforcement

Tigera’s Calico is well known as the de facto standard for network-level security in Kubernetes, being integrated into all the major Kubernetes distributions and managed service offerings. At this meetup Andy Randall, Tigera co-founder, will explore how the latest Calico release (3.2) integrates with Istio to implement application security policies, encompassing cryptographic identity, layer 7 rules and synchronized enforcement between the network (iptables) and application (Istio-proxy sidecar) layers. We will also show how Tigera Secure Enterprise Edition builds on these platform capabilities to provide a complete zero trust security model.
