Securing Docker Containers (Workshop)

Andrew Martin - DevOps Lead @ UK Home Office

Andrew is a DevOps Lead at the UK Home Office with a strong test-first engineering background gained developing and deploying high volume web applications. Proficient in application development and Unix systems architecture and maintenance, he is comfortable profiling and securing every tier of a bare metal or virtualised web stack, and has battle-hardened experience delivering containerised solutions to enterprise clients.

Docker provides a number of container security extensions that can appear esoteric and confusing to a new user. This workshop will demonstrate why containers are insecure and work with vulnerable containers to secure them against various forms of attack and privilege escalation. Attendees will work through hardening, intrusion detection, and CI continuous security measures to lock down containers at all stages of their lifecycle. It finishes with a comprehensive summary of container native security tooling and a comparison with existing tools.
