Illumio Core for Kubernetes and OpenShift

Kubernetes is an open-source system for automating and managing containerized applications. Red Hat OpenShift is an enterprise container-based Platform as a Service (PaaS).

The Illumio Core for Kubernetes and OpenShift Guide provides information on how to use Illumio Core with containerized applications running in Kubernetes and/or OpenShift clusters. It describes how to configure and enable support for containers, write rules for containerized applications, and upgrade Illumio components. It also lists troubleshooting steps and currently known limitations.

The documentation for the Core for Kubernetes 5.1.7 includes information for the following Illumio Core components:

  • C-VEN version: 23.3.0
