Service Mesh Network Security | Andrew Martin

Service Mesh Network Security | Andrew Martin, Kubernetes & container security engineering

Microservice security is too hard. We must issue and rotate TLS certificates, deploy identity providers, and embed auth logic in applications. These all require secure development, test, and maintenance effort. Istio (a Google, IBM, and Lyft project) offers a new way: by providing a service mesh and a unified identity for each request, it offers all these things with zero application changes.
