Description

In September 2017, the National Institute of Standards and Technology issued a 63-page paper detailing its recommendations for container security. While the report is chock-full of recommendations all cloud-native users should implement, it’s not a text most people will actually read.

Elsie Phillips and Paul Burt share key takeaways from the NIST container security standard report, including the importance of using container-specific host OSes and using tooling specific to containers to monitor for vulnerabilities, and offer suggestions for how to implement them within an organization.
