Intro to Container Security

Application containerization is one of the coolest technologies in IT. It solves numerous problems, allows for incredible application density, and can really increase flexibility and responsiveness. But not everyone understands what makes up container security - it's a LOT more than what application is in the container.

In this session, Red Hat’s Thomas Cameron, will talk about the basic components of container security. He'll talk about kernel namespaces, Security Enhanced Linux, Linux control groups, the Docker daemon, etc. and how they all work. He'll provide demonstrations of how each of these technologies affect security.

He'll also talk about tips and tricks for planning a secure container environment, describe some “gotchas” about containers, and debunk some of the security myths about containers.

Attendees will understand the fundamentals of container security when they leave.
