    Introducing Docker Secrets Management

    Thu Feb 09

    Containers are changing how we view apps and infrastructure. Whether the code inside containers is big or small, container architecture introduces a change to how that code behaves with hardware – it fundamentally abstracts it from the infrastructure. Docker believes that there are three key components to container security and together they result in inherently safer apps. A critical element of building safer apps is having a secure way of communicating with other apps and systems, something that often requires credentials, tokens, passwords and other types of confidential information—usually referred to as application secrets. We are excited to introduce Docker Secrets, a container native solution that strengthens the Trusted Delivery component of container security by integrating secret distribution directly into the container platform. With containers, applications are now dynamic and portable across multiple environments. This  made existing secrets distribution solutions Continue reading...

    Introducing Docker Datacenter on 1.13 with Secrets, Security Scanning, Content Cache and more

    Thu Feb 09

    It’s another exciting day with a new release of Docker Datacenter (DDC) on 1.13. This release includes loads of new features around app services, security, image distribution and usability.   Check out the upcoming webinar on Feb 16th for a demo of all the latest features. Let’s dig into some of the new features: Integrated Secrets Management This release of Docker Datacenter includes integrated support for secrets management from development all the way to production. This feature allows users to store confidential data (e.g. passwords, certificates) securely on the cluster and inject these secrets to a service. Developers can reference the secrets needed by different services in the familiar Compose file format and handoff to IT for deployment in production. Check out the blog post on Docker secrets management for more details on implementation. DDC integrates secrets and adds several enterprise-grade enhancements, Continue reading...
