Iptables magic in sidecar istio

Submitted Feb 12, 2019

Istio does iptables magic in sidecars, so that all traffic comes and goes through sidecar i.e. envoy.
We will see how does it do that, how it uses our omnipresent iptables rules to achieve it.


  • Will start with intro to iptables.
  • Understanding of basic rules and chaining.
  • Understanding the iptables rules in sidecar and how it happens.


Nothing, it would view only session with understanding to traffic flow.
