We are happy to announce the latest release for both Kong Mesh and Kuma, which is packed with features and improvements. Kong Mesh 1.7 is focused on security and stability, as it allows to better integrate with AWS thanks to a native AWS ACM integration to store CA certificates while implementing mTLS across our services, and to connect to HashiCorp Vault via AWS Auth. But there is a lot more!
We strongly suggest upgrading, in order to take advantage of the latest and greatest when it comes to service mesh.
The full Kong Mesh changelog is available here.
The full Kuma changelog is available here.
Kuma has 3 ways to provide CAs for your meshes:
In Kong Mesh 1.7.0 we introduced support for an additional mode: the popular AWS ACM service, which helps making our integration with AWS even stronger.
The native AWS support that Kong Mesh provides also includes a native ECS controller, that was shipped in the previous release.
Make sure to checkout the docs for ACM support to get started.
For users running HashiCorp Vault on AWS, using the AWS builtin authentication can greatly reduce the configuration complexity and the requirement needed for storing credentials. This has a dual advantage for both simplicity and reinforced security.
We can switch to this new authentication method by checking out the Vault CA documentation.
