What's new in Cilium 1.14!

Join us to learn about the latest and greatest Cilium features

It’s been an exciting time for the Cilium project and community. Cilium has graduated as a CNCF project – a proof of its maturity and wide adoption. But the Cilium project is not slowing down on the innovation front – the Cilium 1.14 release and the Enterprise edition offered by Isovalent might be the biggest yet.


In this video, you will learn more about: 

  • Multi-network: connect your Pod to multiple interfaces, with no compromise on security or observability
  • Mutual Authentication: improve your security posture with zero effort
  • Envoy DaemonSet: a new option to deploy Envoy as a DaemonSet instead of embedded inside the Cilium agent 
  • WireGuard Improvements: encryption with Cilium is getting better – you can now encrypt the traffic from node-to-node and also use Layer 7 policies alongside WireGuard
  • Gateway API Update: our leading Gateway API implementation is updated with support for the latest Gateway API version, additional route type support and multiple labs
  • L2 Announcements: Cilium can now natively advertise External IPs to local networks over Layer 2, reducing the need to install and manage tools such as MetalLB
  • BGP Enhancements: introducing support for better operational tools and faster failover
  • Multi-Pool IPAM: introducing support to allocate IPs to Pods from multiple IPAM pools.
  • BIG TCP for IPv4: after the introduction of BIG TCP support for IPv6 in Cilium 1.13, here comes IPv4 support. Ready for a 50% throughput improvement? 

We also touch on the ongoing development of Cilium and discuss some of the new roadmap. You can already read about these new features in our 1.14 release blog.

Getting Started with Cilium

Cilium is an open source software for transparently securing the network connectivity between application services deployed using Linux container management platforms like Docker and Kubernetes. At the foundation of Cilium is a new Linux kernel technology called eBPF, which enables the dynamic insertion of powerful security visibility and control logic within Linux itself. Because eBPF runs inside the Linux kernel, Cilium security policies can be applied and updated without any changes to the application code or container configuration. In this interactive, hands-on lab we provide you a fully fledged Cilium installation on a small cluster and a few challenges to solve. See for yourself how Cilium works and how it can help you by securing a moon-sized battlestation in a “Star Wars”-inspired challenge.
