Config Management Camp 2023 Ghent

Cilium Workshop: Kubernetes networking with eBPF
2023-02-08, 09:00–13:00, B.2.015

Container workloads and their orchestrations brings new challenges for networking and observability.

With micro-services architectures increasing the amount of east-west traffic, transient IPs making it harder to correlate network information with workload identity, and application logic split into a multitude of components, traditional SDN approaches are reaching their limit.

Leveraging the eBPF kernel technology, Ciliium is a CNCF project which implements a performant and highly scalable CNI plugin and the while providing metadata-rich observability of the network traffic.

This workshop will guide you in installing Cilium on a Kubernetes cluster, seeing how it provides networking to the workloads, as well as observing traffic using Hubble.

Raphaël is a Solutions Architect with Cloud Native networking and security specialists Isovalent, creators of the Cilium eBPF-based networking project. He works on Cilium, Hubble & Tetragon and the future of Cloud-Native networking & security using eBPF.

An early adept of the DevOps principle, he has been a practitioner of Configuration Management and Agile principles in Operations for many years, with a special involvement in the Puppet and Terraform communities over the years.
