Containers in OpenStack are getting more traction every day but there are still concerns about security and performance. In this talk we will describe how to overcome those problems combining the flexibility of SDN and the reliability and speed of the linux kernel.

Cilium is on open source project which implements Kubernetes network policies and provides container network security by using eBPF and XDP packet filtering in the Linux kernel. Kuryr is the OpenStack project that enables native Neutron-based networking in Kubernetes. In this talk we will describe the work that we’ve done to provide Cilium as CNI plugin and how we used Kuryr to integrate it into OpenStack. We will demonstrate how to deploy and configure a Kubernetes cluster using the Cilium-Kuryr integration. We will explain how Cilium provides L7 network policies and its “native routing” mode, where it just allows any routing daemon to route the traffic. We will illustrate Cilium’s features using concrete examples. Thanks to native packet filtering Cilium boosts performance, we will show tests results to measure how Cilium improves throughput compared to other CNI plugins.
