About FortiGate-VM and Kubernetes

FortiOS supports automatically updating dynamic addresses for Kubernetes (K8s) using a K8s SDN connector, enabling FortiOS to manage K8s pods as global address objects, as with other connectors.

In addition, Fortinet has partnered with Tigera for further integration between Calico and FortiGate. Calico and Calico Enterprise provide the networking and security framework to secure K8s networks. The largest public cloud providers have selected Calico to provide network security for their hosted K8s services. Through its Firewall Manager integration, it can offload zone-based security to the FortiGate firewall. This is accomplished by providing dynamic address updates directly to the FortiGate via REST API.
