Step 1: Install Cilium

The next step is to install Cilium into your Kubernetes cluster. Cilium installation leverages the Kubernetes Daemon Set abstraction, which will deploy one Cilium pod per cluster node. This Cilium pod will run in the kube-system namespace along with all other system relevant daemons and services. The Cilium pod will run both the Cilium agent and the Cilium CNI plugin.

Choose the installation instructions for the environment in which you are deploying Cilium.
