Navigating the Networking Maze of Kubernetes: A Journey of Discovery, Confusion, and (Hopefully) Enlightenment

Kubernetes networking is often perceived as a labyrinth, where pods, services, and ingresses exchange data packets. While Container Network Interfaces (CNIs) undoubtedly play a pivotal role, the networking landscape extends far beyond these plugins.

We'll embark on a journey beyond the confines of CNI, exploring the realm of the kube-apiserver, the central control plane that orchestrates the entire Kubernetes ecosystem. We'll uncover the secrets of the kubelet, the node agent that receives instructions from the kube-apiserver and is responsible for managing the lifecycle of pods and containers on that node.

This talk goes beyond the basics, exploring the hidden gems and dirty secrets of Kubernetes networking.
