OpenShift Commons Briefing: Network Security with OpenShift and Tigera CNX with Amita Gupta
April 18, 2018 | by
OpenShift Commons Briefing Summary
In an earlier Commons briefing (#65), we discussed Tigera’s open source Project Calico, and how it enables simplified networking with secure network policies. In this briefing, Tigera's Amit Gupta expanded on that topic today with an exploration of the additional features enabled by Tigera’s flagship CNX product, and a preview of capabilities in the forthcoming 2.1 release, including even closer integration with OpenShift.
Amit covered practical workflows demanded by enterprises including meeting compliance requirements for network isolation with auditing, monitoring and alerting. He talked about how CNX enables multiple teams (e.g. security, network and development/ops) to easily and collaboratively define hierarchical security policies with role-based access controls and graphical management of policies (at last, yaml is purely optional!), and drew from examples of real-world users adopting both CNX and OpenShift.
