Docker Engine 1.10 Security Improvements

It’s been a crazy past few months with DockerCon and the holidays but yet we are still hacking away on the Docker Engine and have some really awesome security features I would like to highlight with the release of Docker Engine 1.10. Security is very important to us and our approach is two-fold; one is to provide a secure foundation on which to build applications and second, to provide capabilities to secure the applications themselves.
