Container Network Interface 101

Container network interface (CNI) is a standard that makes it easier to configure container networking when containers are created or destroyed.  The CNI spec outlines a plugin interface for container runtimes to coordinate with plugins to configure networking. These plugins do the work of making sure that Kubernetes’ networking requirements are satisfied and providing the networking features that cluster administrators require. In this CNI lesson, you will learn about what a CNI is and how it works.
