All Events

As enterprises transition to containerized deployments and microservices architectures, the need for comprehensive and dynamic policy enforcement becomes paramount. The Open Policy Agent (OPA) emerges as an industry-standard solution, serving as a universal policy engine across the stack.

In this presentation we will discuss:

**1. What is OPA?**

Delve deep into the fundamentals of the Open Policy Agent, understanding its architecture, core components, and its role in the DevOps ecosystem.

**2. OPA in the Enterprise Landscape:**

Explore how OPA is revolutionizing policy enforcement in modern enterprise systems and why it matters.

**3. Hands-on with OPA:**

We will do a live demo of OPA’s capabilities. By leveraging OPA with Istio and Kubernetes, we’ll illustrate the process of setting up a basic Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) system.
