Cilium - BPF & XDP for containers

This talk demonstrates that programmability and performance does not require user space networking, it can be achieved in the kernel by generating BPF programs and leveraging the existing kernel subsystems. We will demo an early prototype which provides fast IPv6 & IPv4 connectivity to containers, container labels based security policy with avg cost O(1), and debugging and monitoring based on the per-cpu perf ring buffer.
