Container technologies, particularly Docker Engine, have been gaining significant popularity and adoption for building development and operational virtualised infrastructures. An increasing number of cloud technologies have started integrating container technologies into their platforms. While the performance and scalability advantages of containers are well known, there have been a number of concerns about the security of container-based solutions.
Through our ongoing collaboration with Defence Science and Technology Group we have just completed a project focused on extensively studying and analysing security of container technology, Docker. This project involved several other strategically important evaluative milestones about which I’ll write separately. Here is the report on security analysis of Docker for building private cloud. A few key points of this report are: Read More »Learning from a Detailed Security Analysis of Containerised Technologies
