FIPS-compliant Kubernetes security in under 30 daysKubernetes-based SaaS applications need to be FedRAMP certified before they can sell to the federal government. Our ultralight Linkerd service mesh provides FIPS-compliant encryption, authentication and authorization for all Kubernetes application traffic in 30 days or less. Fast-track your FedRAMP journey and accelerate your time to market.

Linkerd is designed for securityLinkerd has been built for security from the ground up. Linkerd is the only service mesh that uses a ultra-secure "micro-proxy" written in the Rust programming language. Other service mesh implementations use Envoy, a complex proxy written in C++, a language known for CVEs, buffer overflow exploits, and endemic security vulnerabilities. Linkerd uses industry standards such as mutual TLS and the Gateway API to provide a comprehensive suite of network security controls, including cryptographic workload identity, fine-grained microsegmentation, deny-by-default, and true zero trust networking. With Linkerd, not only is your service mesh ultrafast, small, and simple—it's built for security from the ground up.
