API management is an essential component for all production services. Northwestern Mutual uses it to secure 100s of microservices deployed to our Kubernetes clusters every day! Learning from our API management journey over the past few years, we found many ways to innovate in this space. Using Custom Resource Definitions as a catalyst, we created an open source project called Kanali, a Kubernetes native API management solution. In this talk, we will take you through our API management journey that led up to Kanali and then discuss how to use Kanali to secure your Kubernetes workloads. We will also look at how Kanali integrates with open source developer tooling such as Opentracing, Jaeger, and Grafana.
