A cloud security solution is described herein for Kubernetes-orchestrated clusters using a security cloud-native Virtual Network Function (VNF) deployed on the cluster. One advantage to this solution is that it is built into Kubernetes networking, and is therefore easier to manage/orchestrate. Moreover, it is modular (e.g., can be combined with other solutions via Service Function Chaining (SFC)), and is easier to extend/modify than in other security solutions, which may require changes to the kernel.
