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.
