Containers are getting more traction every day in the NFV arena but there are still concerns about security and performance. In this talk we will describe how to overcome those problems combining the flexibility of SDN and the reliability and speed of the linux kernel. Cilium is on open source project which implements Kubernetes network policies and provides container network security by using eBPF and XDP packet filtering in the Linux kernel. Kuryr is the OpenStack project that enables native Neutron-based networking in Kubernetes. We will demonstrate how to deploy and configure a Kubernetes cluster using Cilium as CNI plugin and Kuryr to integrate it into OpenStack. Thanks to native packet filtering Cilium boosts performance, we will show tests results to measure how Cilium improves throughput compared to other CNI plugins.
