About This Guide

Use this guide to understand how you can create and orchestrate highly secure virtual networks using Contrail Networking and Security. Contrail Networking provides dynamic end-to-end networking policy and control for any cloud, any workload, and any deployment, from a single user interface. And unlike the conventional firewall configuration of IP addresses and port ranges, Contrail Security implements intent-based policy framework that uses policy constructs such as tags, labels, application policy set, address groups, and service groups.
