Potential attack vectors that threaten containerized applications can be grouped into several types:
Threats to the Build Environment
The built environment should be at the top of your security checklist, especially as developers can not expect all to be security experts. Developers have an interest in building products as quickly as possible, meaning that they do not have the time to test management of data or masked data.
Additionally, bugs in source code, changes to automatic escalation controls, and unsafe open source libraries, among other factors, can introduce serious vulnerabilities into the system. Failure to audit the entire build environment process can lead to greater problems that will be more difficult to resolve the road.
Vulnerabilities in Container image
Especially when using basic open source images, the vulnerability may be put into the container. This vulnerability may arise by failing to update the newly installed version of the machine, incorrect configuration and can be compounded by cyber attackers actively seeking profit from these weaknesses.
Container run-time Security
Is the former included a tool like ssh, which allows easy content to be changed? Is the operating safety and protected container host protected through appropriate mapping access to the OS and host sources? Strengthen the security features used and how they interact with containers? Actually most people in security operations will not know the answer to any of these questions. Operating forces most likely do not know what is in the container, which means everyone needs to be raised.
Platform Security Issues
The goal here is to block all but a subset of resources that must be accessed by the container to run the app, which is a less rigorous app of privilege. Why? What can happen if that is not done? If the container attacks the base OS or the former engine itself, its impact will be important. Such an attacker can have the host, and from there it is easily dispersed to another system.
It has emerged as a special pain point for DevOps team. Since the former requires access to the keys and passwords to work, the challenge is how to avoid revealing the secret to other containers, unauthorized users, or through networks. While it is not a unique challenge to the enterprise-level container, it presents unique requirements when it comes to the container because of their orchestra and endless nature.
Orchestra-tor Security Issues
Orchestra-tors are the main management interface to run containers in production. As such, they are the front door to application run-time environments, and must be properly secured.
