Security has long been a hot discussion topic when modern Linux containers are compared to other isolation technologies such as VMs. Recently at DockerCon 2016 in Seattle, ADP, a large worldwide enterprise, took the keynote stage and made the bold claim that they came to containers because of, not in spite of, their security requirements. This is a company who manage highly sensitive personal information for millions of clients worldwide! With that backdrop, Phil will walk through the core security capabilities available today in Docker and other container runtimes, and how those capabilities have improved in the last 12-18 months for both pure container isolation, but also improvements and capabilities that touch across the whole lifecycle of a container workflow. Phil will demonstrate recent additions to the Docker engine in 2016 such as user namespaces and seccomp and how they continue to enable better container security and isolation.
