How to secure your Docker installation (by Michael Boelen the creator of rkhunter)
Independent consultant, open-source enthusiast (openSUSE, Drupal, etc). Also a big classical music lover (artistic manager of the Huygensfestival in Voorburg, supporter of several international chamber music festivals in/around The Hague, The Netherlands). One of my companies basic philosophies is, if open-source provides you with a stable revenue (thank you, 10x), you should do something in return. So my company donates 10% of its annual profit to one of the projects we've been using that year. This contribution can also be by providing help, i.e. in 2015 I was project lead and organizer for openSUSE conference in The Hague!
How to securely deploy your containers, by the author of rkhunter and auditing tool Lynis.
Many introductory talks about Docker and its container technology, have been given. This attention to the subject is not surprising, seeing the amount of people "doing DevOps" now. With container technology being fairly new on the Linux platform, the security aspects of containers are often being overlooked. While Linux containers do still not fully contain from a security point of view, we can definitely improve the security level of them. In this talk, we have a look at the underlying Linux security measures, followed by the features Docker itself has to offer. The goal is to get an understanding how we can deploy containers in a secure way. After all, Docker is no longer just a toy, and our precious data is involved.
