Stopping The Spread Of Vulnerabilities

Container technology allows organizations to reduce their attack surface and streamline and simplify their development process in a manner that allows for continuous iteration and improvement. Allowing for software to run reliably in a multitude of computing environments via containers, however, exposes companies to both new and enhanced security risks.

For starters, any vulnerabilities in the container host kernel could provide a way into the containers that are sharing it. But the security of containers has been enhanced in recent years through by having administrators sign for container images to ensure that untrusted ones aren't deployed.

It doesn't end there, though. Containers should continue to be scanned after signing in the event that any new, exploitable vulnerabilities emerge.
