CNI ChainingΒΆ

CNI chaining allows to use Cilium in combination with other CNI plugins.

With Cilium CNI chaining, the base network connectivity and IP address management is managed by the non-Cilium CNI plugin, but Cilium attaches BPF programs to the network devices created by the non-Cilium plugin to provide L3/L4/L7 network visibility & policy enforcement and other advanced features like transparent encryption.
