Get started with policy

If you are new to Kubernetes, start with “Kubernetes policy” and learn the basics of enforcing policy for pod traffic. Otherwise, dive in and create more powerful policies with Calico policy. The good news is, Kubernetes and Calico policies are very similar and work alongside each other – so managing both types is easy.

Calico policy

Calico network policy lets you secure both workloads and hosts.

Kubernetes policy

Manage your Kubernetes network policies right alongside the more powerful Calico network policies.

Enable default deny

Create a default deny network policy so pods that are missing policy are not allowed traffic until appropriate network policy is defined.
