KubeCon North America will be held virtually this Nov. 17-20 along with the CNCF’s co-located ServiceMeshCon North America running Nov. 17 from 7 to 3 PST. Tetrate is excited to sponsor KubeCon this year & while we miss the chance to hang out IRL, we’re really looking forward to chatting with you at our booth, and our sponsor Slack channel!
Tetrate’s Zack Butcher’s recent AMA with the United States Air Force Chief Software Officer, Nicolas Chaillan highlighted some significant achievements as a result of the Department of Defense’s move to Open source technology and DevSecOps. Platform One is a group of Air Force software developers that build and secure technology tools used across the DoD, as part of the Enterprise DevSecOps Initiative. Tetrate is a partner DoD is working with, on their journey to modernization.
The 3rd annual Envoy-Con, a practitioner-driven community conference organized by the Linux Foundation, was held virtually today and attended by a few hundred developers and end users who have adopted Envoy, the edge and service proxy. Envoy is a widely adopted open source project that can be used in various deployment scenarios, including as a load balancer and as a service mesh data plane.
Security remains one of the primary drivers behind service mesh adoption today. In this virtual webinar to be held Oct. 21 at 11 a.m. (PDT), U.S. Air Force CSO Nicolas M. Chaillan will join Tetrate’s Zack Butcher to discuss “DevSecOps and IT Innovation with the Department of Defense.”
The Identity Management & Access Control for Multi-Cloud Conference co-hosted this January by Tetrate and NIST drew 300 attendees to Maryland and and some 600 more participants online. A major takeaway: a Zero Trust Architecture needs service mesh technologies (Istio and Envoy) and Next Generation Access Control (NGAC).
Going to KubeCon San Diego? Visit us at Booth SE65.
KubeCon is just 2 weeks away, and Tetrate is excited to be sending our engineers, including top Istio and Envoy contributors. Look for the newly released Istio roadmap, Istio Up and Running, by Lee Calcote and our own Zack Butcher. And stop by and ask us anything about bridging legacy with cloud native.
Using gRPC to solve the problems of REST APIs: Service Mesh Day video and transcript (Venil Noronha)
All right. Thanks for joining me in this talk. My name is Venil Noronha and I worked with the VMware open source technology center. I have a fun job that is to contribute upstream to Istio and Envoy full time. Today we’ll have a look at rest API in some problems associated with rest APIs and how gRPC solves these problems. And finally we’ll have a look at how we can take the gRPC experience to applications running on a web browsers with the help of gRPC web and Istio.
Cameron Moreau & Tian Wang on bringing end user identity to the service mesh: Service Mesh Day 2019 video and transcript
Cameron Moreau and Tian Wang from Pivotal spoke at Tetrate’s inaugural Service Mesh Day 2019 in San Francisco on the workings, pain points, and future of auth.
Ferraiolo gave an in-depth presentation on Next Generation Access Control (NGAC), an ANSI/INCITS standard that boldly goes where no RBAC or ABAC has gone before. NGAC enables diverse access control policies to be specified and enforced in combinations. And while NGAC can be deployed in various environments, Tetrate’s Ignasi Barrera joined Ferraiolo to demonstrate its implementation in a service mesh where it’s capable of providing a complete authorization framework.
