"The folks at Docker have done ...
"The folks at Docker have done a lot to reduce its attack surface by creating a very small container," CloudPassage CTO Amrit Williams told LinuxInsider.
"The issue isn't so much Docker security as it is extending the visibility and control that folks in a large organization would have over Docker containers running in a production environment."
A current problem with Docker
is that it's difficult to configure a container so it's secure.
"What we want to make sure is that when we deploy thousands or tens of thousands of these containers, all of them are adhering to corporate policy as they're configured," Williams
"About 90 percent of external cyberattacks aren't super sophisticated," he
added, "it's that they take advantage of things that administrators could have done properly -- for example, misconfigurations and not installing patches in time."
