With KubeCon EU happening in Copenhagen, we looked back at the most popular posts with our readers on Docker and Kubernetes. For those of you that have yet to try Docker EE 2.0, this blog highlights how Docker EE 2.0 provides a secure supply chain for Kubernetes. The GA release of the Docker Enterprise Edition (Docker EE) container platform last month integrates Kubernetes orchestration, running alongside Swarm, to provide a single container platform that supports both legacy and new applications running on-premises or in the cloud. For organizations that are exploring Kubernetes or deploying it in production, Docker EE offers integrated…

Two weeks ago we shared how the upcoming release of Docker Enterprise Edition (Docker EE) is able to secure the software supply chain for Kubernetes; just as it does for Docker Swarm through a combination of scanning for vulnerabilities and implementing image promotion policies. In this blog, we’ll take a closer look at another part of this solution – Docker Content Trust and image signing. When combined with granular Role Based Access Controls [RBAC] and the secure clustering features of Docker EE, organizations get a secure container platform solution that is ready for the enterprise. Restricting Unverified Kubernetes Content As discussed in Part 1 of…

For organizations that are exploring Kubernetes or deploying it in production, Docker EE offers integrated security for the entire lifecycle of a containerized application, providing an additional layer of security before the workload is deployed by Kubernetes and continuing to secure the application while it is running. Mike Coleman previously discussed access controls for Kubernetes. This week we’ll begin discussing how Docker EE…
