Improving Trust in Containers - Matthew Garrett, CoreOS

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Containers using Linux namespaces are less isolated than traditional Virtual Machines. They expose a larger attack surface and they often lack good update strategies. But it's also clear that containers make it much easier to deploy applications and to build fault-tolerant systems, so there's a strong incentive to reduce this disparity. What can we do?

This presentation will cover the wide range of security technologies available around containers and describe how in combination they can provide both the benefits of containerisation and a level of trust near that of traditional VM. It will also cover work currently in development that makes it possible to take containers even further,
allowing stronger audit trails to be built around containers than any traditional software deployment mechanism.
