Tetrate, the provider of application networking and security platform, has announced the renewal of its contract with the United States Air Force (USAF). The total annual contract value exceeds $1.7 million for services and support. Tetrate supports USAF “Platform One” with application networking and security services with Tetrate Istio Subscription (TIS), a product based on open source Istio service mesh and Envoy proxy, services essential for implementing a Zero Trust security model.

Platform One is a software development platform used by the USAF to build secure and compliant software applications. It is a cloud-based platform that provides a common set of tools, processes and security controls for software development across the USAF. Platform One aims to enable faster and more efficient software development while ensuring security and compliance with regulations and policies. The platform includes tools for continuous integration and deployment, containerization, and automated testing, among other features.

Recently, NIST SP 800-207A (SP 207A), the next installment of Zero Trust guidance from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), was released for public review. It provides guidance in designing a Zero Trust architecture (ZTA) for cloud-native application platforms (microservices with a service mesh infrastructure) in the context of an enterprise environment where applications are hosted in multi-cluster and multi-cloud deployments. SP 207-A is co-authored by Tetrate founding engineer Zack Butcher.

The fourth annual conference on Zero Trust architecture (ZTA) and high assurance for cloud-native applications — hosted by Tetrate in partnership with the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Department of Commerce — is an event for cybersecurity professionals, policy makers, entrepreneurs and students. The conference will take place Thursday, May 25 and will include a free, three-hour service mesh workshop on Wednesday, May 24.

The conference will be held at Herbert C. Hoover Federal Building in Washington, DC, is open to the public and will be streamed live. This year’s conference will focus on delivering ZTA through application-tier and network-tier policies in a high assurance service mesh operating environment
