Ensuring robust Kubernetes security is a shared responsibility that demands collaboration between developers and operators. By addressing vulnerabilities in container images, restricting additional privileges, and restricting visibility between components, organizations can establish a secure Kubernetes environment. Developers play a crucial role in utilizing vulnerability scans, minimizing components, and implementing authentication measures, while operators enforce policies, perform vulnerability scans, and manage network visibility. Together, they fortify the container ecosystem, protecting applications and critical business assets from potential security breaches. Discover the collaborative journey to Kubernetes security and unlock the full potential of this powerful orchestration platform.

Understanding Istio ServiceEntry: How to Extend Your Service Mesh to External Endpoints
An Istio ServiceEntry is an object within the Istio service mesh that allows you to extend the mesh to external endpoints or internal services that are not part of the platform’s service registry. ServiceEntries allow you to specify details such as hostname, port, and protocol for the external service, as well as the resolution mode to use when accessing it. You can use ServiceEntries to apply Istio features such as load balancing, protocol switching, and authentication to external services. You can also view ServiceEntries in the Kiali graphical representation of the service mesh. ServiceEntries are useful in a variety of scenarios, including when you want to connect to external services or when you have multiple clusters and need to extend the mesh across them.
