Consul API Gateway 0.2.0 Released

Today we’re pleased to announce the general availability of the Consul API Gateway version 0.2. This release includes an update that allows users to better control how traffic is routed between Kubernetes namespaces. Previously, users could route requests from the API Gateway across various namespaces without providing any sort of explicit permissions. While this meant that any service connected to the service mesh was reachable, it didn’t allow users to set the more granular restrictions or permissions that they may expect.

This release of API Gateway implements Cross Namespace Reference Policies, which are a security mechanism in the Kubernetes Gateway API that requires these policies be defined when routes are in a different namespace than the services to which they route traffic.
