NOT ON THE CURRENT EDITION
This blip is not on the current edition of the radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the radarUnderstand more

Traditional Linux network security approaches, such as iptables, filter on IP address and TCP/UDP ports. However, these IP addresses frequently churn in dynamic microservices environments. By leveraging Linux eBPF, Cilium provides API-aware networking and security by transparently inserting security in a way that is based on service, pod or container identity in contrast to IP address identification. By decoupling security from addressing, Cilium could play a significant role as a new network protection layer and we recommend you to check it out.
