Weave security

Weave offers a couple of features that fall under the umbrella of security. Since Weave is an overlay-based network solution, it offers the ability to encrypt the overlay traffic as it traverses the physical or underlay network.

Weave relies on using different subnets for each isolated segment to achieve this. In this recipe, we'll walk through how to configure both overlay encryption as well as how to provide isolation for different containers across the Weave network.
