Extending Istio and Gloo Mesh with Web Assembly
WebAssembly filters allow users the power to extend and customize Istio to their liking. But how do organizations actually develop them? Tooling exists for traditional software development, but established methods and tooling are difficult to come by in the emerging WebAssembly ecosystem. In this talk we will attempt to answer the following, based on our experience working Istio + WebAssembly in customer environments for over one year

Guide to Securing Your Kubernetes Workloads with the Istio Service Mesh
Istio has many powerful security features for protecting your applications from malicious actors inside and outside of your network. Users rely on Istio features to meet various compliance standards designed for protection of sensitive data environments. These include encryption, authentication, authorization, monitoring tools, and control of ingress and egress traffic. Unfortunately, enabling and using these features is not as simple as clicking a checkbox. Configuring these policies correctly requires a deeper understanding of default behaviors, installation settings and the Istio CRDs. Failure to configure properly can result in data breaches or unintended behaviors.  In this session, you will get an overview of the basics, out of the box functionality, and relevant Istio CRDs. In addition, you learn best practice guidelines for incrementally adopting these features and tools you can use to validate your security posture.

Istio at Scale
In this talk, I'll share the lessons I learned while deploying Istio on multiple Kubernetes clusters with more than 1000 Pods.
I decided to run everything on KinD clusters and I had to tune many parameters at different levels (Linux kernel, Kubernetes, Istio, ...).
After that, I'll explain how multi cluster communication can be configured using either the native Istio discovery service (EDS) or Gloo Mesh. I'll compare both solutions and how they scale.
Finally, I'll demonstrate how Gloo Mesh can be used to provide high-availability of applications across clusters, zones, and regions.
