Kong for Kubernetes is a Kubernetes Ingress Controller based on the Kong Gateway open source project. Kong for K8s is fully Kubernetes-native and provides enhanced API management capabilities. From an architectural perspective, Kong for K8s consists of two parts: A Kubernetes controller, which manages the state of Kong for K8S ingress configuration, and the Kong Gateway, which processes and manages incoming API requests.

When protecting your online services, the weakest link is represented by the endpoints – that is, by the end-user devices running web or mobile applications or by external systems leveraging open APIs. As a matter of fact, there is a growing number of targeted attacks leveraging sophisticated techniques such as malicious web injections, mobile overlay and API abuse attacks to perform identity hijacking, account takeover, transaction tampering and payment frauds.

In his most recent blog post, Marco Palladino, our CTO and co-founder, went over the difference between API gateways and service mesh. I highly recommend reading his blog post to see how API management and service mesh are complementary patterns for different use cases, but to summarize in his words, “an API gateway and service mesh will be used simultaneously.” We maintain two open source projects that work flawlessly together to cover all the use cases you may encounter.

A modern API gateway like Kong enables organizations to achieve some use cases much more easily than traditional gateways. The reason is older, traditional gateways try to provide as many features as possible into a heavyweight monolith, while modern solutions use a best-in-breed approach. These traditional solutions not only try to be a gateway, but they also try to be a business intelligence system, a central logging hub, a monitoring tool and so much more.

Let’s admit it – web services (SOAP) are here to stay for a few more years, and maybe for a long time in some places where there is no business incentive to rebuild them. However, with a decline in new SOAP web services and most applications moving to cloud native architectures, a common query is “how can we support legacy services while moving to microservices?”

Performance is a critical factor when choosing an API management solution. For businesses, the need to deliver low latency and high throughput is critical to ensuring that API transaction rates keep up with the speed of business. This white paper compares the performance of Kong and Apigee to understand performance in production environments.

Service Mesh is the future of application connectivity. It delivers immediate value to any architecture by increasing the security, reliability and observability of our application traffic. At the same time our industry made it challenging to understand and deploy it in production: but it doesn't have to be this way.

We are thrilled to announce the general availability of Kong Gateway 2.0. With this release the technology will become more platform-agnostic to deploy it across on-premises and the cloud (Hybrid mode), and it also becomes more development language agnostic.

In this call API Fortress talked about mocking APIs with Kong and API Fortress. You might want to mock APIs to build tests against them before the services are ready, to save money during service development, or to keep your development environments isolated. Learn how API Fortress uses Kong in their API mocking technology. Plus, see a demo.
