Hashicorp Consul-Connect on Kubernetes


Consul-Connect is a feature built into to Consul that enables automatic service-to-service authorization and connection encryption across Consul services. Connect can be used with Kubernetes to secure pod communication with other pods in your cluster as well as applications outside of Kubernetes. It also allows for easier integration with external applications with pods and services in your cluster.

This talk will focus on the integration of Consul and Kubernetes that enhances existing Kubernetes features rather than replace them. A demo will show how Consul converts external services in Consul's catalog into first-class Kubernetes Service resources. Also discussed will be how pods and services in Kubernetes can then discover and connect to non-Kubernetes services natively.
