Image Overview: istio-operator
Istio is a service mesh that extends Kubernetes to provide traffic management, telemetry, security, and policy for complex deployments.
The image is available on
docker pull cgr.dev/chainguard/istio:latest
This is the data plane part of Istio, consisting of:
- A custom-built Envoy that contains Istio plugins (Wasm, telemetry)
- iptables to route inbound/outbound traffic through the Envoy proxy when acting as a sidecar
- pilot-agent to bootstrap the Envoy with some Istio-specific configurations
Istio Pilot provides mesh-wide traffic management, security and policy capabilities in the Istio Service Mesh.
