In this episode, we sat down with Tim Hinrichs, a co-founder of the Open Policy Agent project and CTO of Styra. We talked about why he created Styra and its relationship with Open Policy Agent (a project that was contributed to CNCF). We also talked about Styra Declarative Authorization Service (DAS) and why Styra is focussing on the Kubernetes use case.
