A service mesh is necessary for organizations adopting microservices and dynamic cloud-native infrastructure. Traditional host-based network security must be replaced with modern service-based security to accommodate the highly dynamic nature of modern runtime environments. In this talk, we will look at Connect a significant new feature in Consul that provides secure service-to-service communication with automatic TLS encryption and identity-based authorization. We will look at the features of Connect, how to enable Connect in an existing Consul cluster and how easy it is to secure service-to-service communication using Connect.
