A forward proxy is a client-side proxy. So basically, a client is connecting to a proxy. The proxy is upstream of you, so you’re connecting to a proxy. In a reverse proxy, the proxy is downstream, connecting to you. Matt Klein, creator of the Envoy proxy, and Lizan Zhou, a Tetrate engineer and senior maintainer of Envoy answer questions about Envoy architecture, security, extensibility, and more in this “Ask Me Anything” webinar hosted by Tetrate on 6/09/2020. Tia Louden moderates. Find answers on this topic and other questions about service mesh by subscribing to Tetrate’s channel.
