Chapter 6. sVirt and Docker Support
More and more system tools have built-in support for SELinux or use SELinux's features to further harden their own service offerings. When we look at virtualization, two open source projects will definitely come to mind: libvirt and Docker. While the former supports full virtualization, the latter focuses on container management. In this chapter, administrators will:

- Deal with the secure virtualization option supported through the libvirt API
We'll end the chapter with a section on Securing Docker containers with SELinux.
