Service mesh academy

Hands-on, engineer-focused training from the creators of the service mesh

service mesh academy

These monthly live workshops provide hands-on training on Linkerd and related CNCF projects. From setting up mTLS, to securing multi-cluster communication, to fine-grained network policy, you'll learn everything you need for successfully running a service mesh in production.

Feb 17 - A guide to end-to-end encryption with Emissary-ingress and Linkerd

In this hands-on workshop, we'll encrypt application calls end-to-end with Emissary-ingress, Linkerd, Kubernetes, and Envoy — four CNCF projects. (Spoiler alert: it's insanely easy!) Members of the Emissary-ingress and Linkerd teams will share best practices to get ingress TLS, in-cluster mTLS, advanced L7 routing, rate limiting, embedded authentication, and more.

A deep dive into Kubernetes mTLS with Linkerd

A deep dive into Kubernetes mTLS with Linkerd

300+ Participants

Mutual TLS (mTLS) is a hot topic in the Kubernetes world, especially for anyone tasked with getting “encryption in transit” for their applications. In this workshop, we give you a solid understanding of what mTLS is, how it works, and how it compares to alternatives.
