Microservices are taking over how software is developed. The communication among microservices is a challenge for both developers and operators. A service mesh is trying to ease this pain for both, and provide flexible, secure and observable communication channels for microservices. Istio is a service mesh launched by Google, IBM, and Lyft, which allows us to interconnect our deployed services. It also includes tools for load balancing, authenticating and monitoring service-to-service traffic. In this talk I’ll start with an introduction to service mesh and Istio. I will present how they work and will show some of Istio’s features which can enhance the security of the communication.
