What's New in Linkerd 2.9: mTLS for all TCP connections, ARM support, and more

What's New in Linkerd 2.9: mTLS for all TCP connections, ARM support, and more. The Linkerd 2.9 release is a huge milestone for fans of zero-trust security: it extends Linkerd's zero-config mutual TLS (mTLS) support to all TCP connections. This means Linkerd can encrypt and authenticate all TCP connections in the cluster the moment it's installed, including automatic certification rotation and strong guarantees of pod identity. The 2.9 release also adds ARM support, introduces a new multi-core proxy runtime for higher throughput, adds support for Kubernetes service topologies, and lots, lots more.
