Unboxing the Service Mesh Interface (SMI) Spec Using Consul and Kubernetes
Jun 27, 2019
Watch the implementation of service-to-service traffic policy using HashiCorp Consul without leaving the Kubernetes API.
The Service Mesh Interface (SMI) is a new specification from Microsoft that helps service mesh providers run on Kubernetes in a standard way, without stifling each provider's flexibility to have different features.
Currently, HashiCorp Consul supports SMI's Traffic Access Control specification, which configures access to specific pods and routes based on the identity of a client, to only allow specific users and services.
In this video, you'll see Lachlan Evenson, a principal program manager at Microsoft demo Consul's early SMI support. For more info on how Consul supports SMI, read our announcement blog post on this topic.
