Docker has certainly become one of the most important parts of business infrastructure. Equally important is the question on how to secure it.This HackerSploit course, made in cooperation with Linode, has the answer.
The HackerSploit: Docker Security Series aims to provide developers, system administrators and DevOps engineers the necessary skills to be able to audit, secure and manage Docker in the context of an organization or in their own personal projects.
Available as an on demand event, it comes in two parts which in order to be watched require a simple registration with Name and email. However Part 1 is already available as a YouTube playlist without any restrictions. It comprises 4 chapters and lasts for 2 hours and 40 minutes and also has an extra, almost hour-long introductory video that is not part of the registered event!
Chapter 1: Auditing Docker Security
Chapter 2: Securing the Docker Host
Chapter 3: Securing the Docker Daemon
Chapter 4: Securing & Hardening Docker Containers
Part 2 is more in depth and technical and looks into securing the Docker daemon, using Jails and implementing access control. It is currently only available on demand and requires registration. It comprises 5 chapters and lasts for 2 hours and 13 minutes:
Chapter 1: Controlling Container Resource Consumption With Control Groups
Chapter 2: Implementing Access Control For Containers With App Armor
Chapter 3: Limiting Container System Calls With Seccomp
Chapter 4: Vulnerability Scanning For Docker Containers
Chapter 5: Building Secure Docker Images
Registering is recommended as as well as gaining access to both parts you also get the opportunity to participate in live exercises on O'Reilly's Katakoda platform. While not specific to the HackerSploit series since these exercises are Docker- related.
Personally as an independent developer I've found Part 1 very useful and educational and I gained the most value out of it although I've found Part 2 still intriguing.
The important thing to realize is that the course looks at Docker not as just securing containers but as as a platform/environment.
It's a very useful Linode initiative acknowledging Docker's ever rising importance thus the need for ensuring its security.
The course is also accompanied by a freely available eBook.
