Docker Security

Book description

To use Docker safely, in both production and development, you need to be aware of the potential security issues and the major tools and techniques for securing container-based systems. In this O’Reilly report, Adrian Mouat—Chief Scientist at Container Solutions—provides guidance and advice for developing container security policies and procedures.

Mouat addresses threats such as kernel exploits, DoS attacks, container breakouts, and poisoned images throughout the report with solutions that include defense-in-depth (using the analogy of a castle’s layered defenses) and least privilege.
