How the Hive Came to Bee: Cilium, an eBPF Use Case

eBPF: From the Creators' Viewpoint

Join our series of videos where we cover eBPF from the creators’ viewpoint! Hear more about the evolution, adoption, inner workings and the game-changing nature of eBPF. Learn from the co-founders and creators of eBPF, how it all fits with other projects at Isovalent, and how it is used in real world situations.

This Session: Using eBPF in the Real World: Cilium, an eBPF Use Case
In this third and last video of the eBPF Creators’ webinar series, hear an example of how eBPF is used in the real world with Cilium. In this video, you will learn how Cilium brings the necessary stack together to run a sophisticated platform on eBPF and how eBPF enables us to push the limits of what is possible.

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.
