As we're learning from the other sessions at this summit, Kubernetes has many applications in the Enterprise Edge. However, Edge networks are more difficult to physically protect against malicious parties or other interference, so it becomes critical that security is implemented, not only between pods, but also to protect traffic on the wire. To add to the challenges, in an edge Kubernetes deployment, making the best possible use of the available CPU resources is even more critical than normal due to limited available resource - you can't just buy a bigger instance, here! Using Calico, VPP, and WireGuard together offers incredible wire-rate encryption of data-in-flight, with extremely limited CPU overhead. In this session we will talk through how these benefits can be realised for your clusters.
