gRPC Proxyless Service Mesh with Security - Sanjay M Pujare, Google

Feedback form is now closed.
gRPC has been a popular choice for building microservices based service mesh architectures especially after the recent introduction of service mesh features such as service discovery, load balancing, and observability which eliminated the need for sidecar proxies - like Envoy - in the service mesh. The introduction of these features in gRPC enabled a "proxyless service mesh". In this session we will talk about the addition of mTLS based transport security to the proxyless service mesh. We will describe the orchestration of security by the xDS control plane, the addition of a security plugin architecture to gRPC, and the implementation of some of those plugins to take advantage of security infrastructure in the Google Kubernetes Environment (GKE).
