Cilium Gateway API
In this short lab, you will learn about Gateway API, a new Kubernetes standard on how to route traffic into a Kubernetes cluster. The Gateway API is the next generation of the Ingress API.
Gateway API addresses some the Ingress limitations by providing an extensible, role-based and generic model to configure advanced L7 traffic routing capabilities into a Kubernetes cluster.
In this lab, you will learn how you can use the Cilium Gateway API functionality to route HTTP and HTTPS traffic into your Kubernetes-hosted application.
Main steps in the lab

Let's use our Gateway API to route HTTP traffic into our cluster, based on HTTP Path.
Now, use Gateway API to route HTTP traffic based on HTTP Header values.
Finally, use Gateway API to route HTTPS traffic into our cluster.
