    Hi All,

     NIST SP 800-204A Building Secure Microservices-based Applications Using Service-Mesh Architecture:

    As microservices-based applications are increasingly deployed within large enterprises and cloud-based environments, dedicated and scalable infrastructure is needed to support a comprehensive set of security services. This infrastructure is called the Service Mesh, which can support authentication, authorization, secure service discovery, secure communication, security monitoring, as well as other security services.<o:p></o:p>

    NIST announces the publication of SP 800-204A, Building Secure Microservices-based Applications Using Service-Mesh Architecture. Its purpose is to provide deployment recommendations (including configuration parameters) for Service Mesh components that span several runtime aspects of microservices-based applications to meet the security requirements of this class of applications for various scenarios. The deployment of Service Mesh components to enable these services involves multiple configurations.<o:p></o:p>
