Docker Enterprise Edition enters FIPS certification process

Security is a key pillar of the Docker Enterprise Edition (EE)  platform. From built in features automatically configured out of the box to a new secure supply chain and flexible yet secure configurations that are portable with the app from one environment to another – enabling the most secure infrastructure and applications is paramount. In addition to all the security features, ensuring that the Docker platform is validated against widely-accepted standards and best practices is a critical aspect of our product development as this enables companies and agencies across all industries to adopt Docker containers. The most notable of these standards is that of the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) Publication 140-2, which validates and approves the use of various security encryption modules within a software system. Today, we’re pleased to announce that the Docker EE cryptography libraries are at Continue reading…
