»Consul API Gateway 0.2.0
Cross Namespace Reference Policies: Reference Policies are security mechanism in the Kubernetes Gateway API that allows users to better control how traffic is routed between Kubernetes namespaces. With the previous releases of Consul API Gateway, users could route requests from the API Gateway across various namespaces without providing any sort of explicit permissions. While this meant that any service connected to the service mesh was reachable, it didn’t allow users to set the more granular restrictions or permissions that they may expect.
This version of API Gateway implements Cross Namespace Reference Policies and requires them when routes are in a different namespace than the services (as specified by the
backendRef) they are routing traffic to.
- Consul 1.11.2+
- HashiCorp Consul Helm chart 0.43.0+
- Kubernetes 1.21+
- Kubectl 1.21+
- Envoy proxy support is determined by the Consul version deployed. Refer to Envoy Integration for details.
