Cilium Workshop with Isovalent & Eficode - Helsinki

Join the team from Isovalent and Eficode for an instructor led hands-on workshop around Cilium and Security Observability & Tetragon.


  • Tuesday, May 9

    13:00-17:00 EET (meetup between 17:30-20:00)

    Epicenter HelsinkiMikonkatu 9, Helsinki

Meet us in Helsinki to network and learn together with your local Cilium community

Isovalent has joined forces with Eficode to organize a half-day workshop, where we will dive into presentations, demos, and hands-on labs around Cilium, Security Observability and Tetragon.

After the hard work is over, we’ll gather the local Cilium community for a meetup with plenty of drinks and bites to conclude the day on a high note and get to know each other.
Sign up for the meetup here.

For this workshop you need to bring your own laptop.

    Introduction about Cilium and eBPF

    Cilium is the next generation, eBPF powered open-source Cloud Native Networking solution, providing security, observability, scalability, and superior performance. Cilium has joined the CNCF as an incubating project.

    In this session, you’ll discover how Cilium with eBPF provides superior performance while providing identity and application aware security and visibility for your Cloud-Native Workloads. Learn how you can leverage Cilium Cluster Mesh for providing connectivity for load-balancing, observability and security between nodes across multiple clusters, enabling simple, high-performance cross-cluster connectivity. And finally, learn how eBPF streamlines Service Mesh implementations while eliminating the sidecar problem.

    Lab 1: Getting Started with Cilium

    In this lab, we provide you a fully fledged Cilium installation on a small cluster, together with a few challenges to solve. See yourself how Cilium works, and how it can help you securing your moon-sized battlestation in a “Star Wars”-inspired challenge.

    Lab 2: Security Observability with eBPF and Cilium Tetragon

    Cilium Tetragon is an open source Security Observability and Runtime Enforcement tool from the makers of Cilium. It captures different process and network event types through a user-supplied configuration to enable security observability on arbitrary hook points in the kernel; then translates these events into actionable signals for a Security Team
