Using IO Visor to Secure Microservices Running on Cloud Foundry

As microservices grow, traditional firewall rules based on network ACLs are no longer scalable and fall short of providing fine-grained enforcement. Group Based Policy (GBP) is a flexible policy language that allows users to specify policy enforcement based on intent, independent of network infrastructure and IP addressing. Using micro-segmented virtual domains, administrators can define policies at a centralized location and use IO Visor technology for distributed enforcement. This provides infrastructure independent rules, template-based policy definitions, and scale-out policy enforcement for a solution that secures and scales with microservices. This session will be presented by members of the IO Visor community and will cover how IO Visor technology can be used to define and enforce GBP. The discussion will also cover using GBP for cloud foundry application spaces where microservices are deployed and need scalable, efficient security policies.
