Government Summit 2018

The Docker Government Summit is an annual gathering for industry leaders, government IT and software developers and ecosystem to learn, connect and engage to discuss what’s new and share how to leverage these technologies for secure and efficient IT modernization.

The potential for technology to accelerate new methods of supporting missions, servicing constituents and enriching student experiences is massive. The opportunities for both new innovation and optimization of the existing IT footprint are possible through technologies like cloud and containers and DevOps style methodologies.

Case Study: LockHeed Martin Case Study: #bigwhale: An Unexpected Journey @Lockheed Martin - Part 1

Arjuna Rivera, Lockheed Martin i2 Labs Lead
Andy Clemenko, Docker Solutions Architect

Docker Container Platform Technology Overview

Robert Freeman, Docker Solutions Engineer

2017 was a banner year for change and disruption at Lockheed Martin. Our Enterprise IT started the migration to cloud and with it implemented a containerization strategy with Docker. As innovation accelerates and customer needs rapidly evolve, Lockheed Martin recognized the need to become more agile in order to respond and support our customers’ business goals. This presentation focuses the journey of i2 Labs at Lockheed Martin into containerization, cloud and agile development to deliver an enterprise Containers as a Service for consistent, repeatable, and reliable application deployments.

Docker Enterprise Edition [EE] is the enterprise ready container platform for integrated security, agile operations of applications on your choice of infrastructure. From a certified container engine to a secure software lifecycle and unified operational model, Docker EE provides a feature rich platform to support IT teams’ containerization strategies. This session dives into the platform architecture, technical features and a live demonstration.

Panel Discussion: Driving Infrastructure Modernization and Application Agility at the FDA with Docker

Daren Arnold, Aurotech Sr. DevOps Architect
Imneetpal Brar, Aurotech Director IT, DevOps and Agile Delivery
Andrew Weiss, Docker Solutions Engineer

Virginia Tech Case Study: Dino Apps Need Love Too

Mike Irwin, Virginia Tech

The FDA Office of Information Management and Technology (OIMT's) published strategic initiative is to provide high quality, secure and efficient IT solutions that enable the FDA to promote and protect the public health. To achieve this strategy, The FDA OIMT launched an initiative to modernize the existing enterprise infrastructure, with the goal of improving application agility across the various on-premises datacenters and cloud environments. This presentation will feature personnel from Aurotech and Docker discussing the IT Modernization business case using containerization as a key driver for lowering cost, and improving the quality and responsiveness. The panel will also discuss the architectural design and considerations for implementation of various technologies and evolving operational processes.

We all have them... dino (legacy) apps that no one wants to touch, let alone "modernize" by breaking it apart and creating microservices. While Docker is often seen as a tool to support microservices, what if you REALLY don't want to change the app? It's just too risky, right? Not at all. In fact, it's too risky NOT to containerize that dino. Come prepared to hear of the benefits, learn best practices, and even see a dino app get updated to enjoy the benefits of being moved into a modern software supply chain, especially the security-related benefits. And who knows? There may even be some dino surprises, so be ready for anything!

Hands on Lab: Get started in building your first container

Christine Lovett, Docker Solutions Engineer
Linda Nichols, Cloudreach Software Engineer

Modernizing Traditional Apps in Cloud with Microsoft Azure Government & Docker Enterprise
Government IT leaders are increasingly transforming the way their organizations work – bringing together people, processes and technology – to meet increasing demands for better citizen services and to achieve greater efficiencies. See how Microsoft Azure Government accelerates the development and deployment of both Linux and Windows containerized solutions using Docker Enterprise and native Azure cloud capabilities. Microsoft's Corey Sanders will showcase the Azure Marketplace deployment of Docker Enterprise and give insights to the Docker Ecosystem commitment in Azure.

Beyond Monitoring and Security: Troubleshooting and
Forensics with Sysdig

Everyone knows how microservices and containers are revolutionizing the way we deploy applications and maintain our infrastructure. But as many teams are starting to find out, containers have a key problem: monitoring and securing them with traditional tools can be impractical, painful, and sometimes plain impossible. The Sysdig Container Intelligence Platform provides a unified platform to deliver monitoring, security, and troubleshooting in a microservices-friendly architecture. In this session we will demo how Sysdig helps to:

  • Monitor and alerting on Docker EE infrastructure, services and applications
  • Unified interface to troubleshoot issues inside containers and orchestrators with full system visibility
  • Implement microservices based security policies looking at run-time behavior
  • Enable post-mortem analysis and forensics on containers after they are long gone

Attendees will leave with a knowledge of how monitoring and security changes with containers, and how the Sysdig Container Intelligence Platform integrates with Docker EE to provide a comprehensive solution for monitoring and security in a microservices architecture.

Interested in getting started with containers? This hands on lab will go through the basic concepts of Docker, containerization and how to get started building your first applications with the Docker platform.

Session 1: Love and agony of containers in government

Aidan Feldman, 18F

Session 2: Government Cyber Engineering with Containers

Zach Staples, Fathom5 Maritime Cybersecurity

Hands on Lab: Managing containers in production

Andrew Weiss, Docker Solutions Engineer
Brett Fisher, Docker Captain

Two of the largest challenges in deploying government software are meeting cybersecurity and compliance requirements and then securely supporting the software over its lifecycle to deploy new features and correct bugs. Learn how containers play an ever-increasing role in solving these two key challenges to ensure your government software project is a success from launch till sunset.

What’s next after you build your single or multi-container application? This hands on lab will walk through the application deployment and day two operations like scaling and updates of container applications with Docker Enterprise Edition.

Automating Security and Compliance via a new standard-of-standards: NIST OSCAL

David Waltermire, NIST Security Automation Architect
Anil Karmel, C2 Labs Co-Founder and CEO
Andrew Weiss, Docker Solutions Engineer

Sponsor Session: Rapid Oracle Deployments with Docker Containers

Phil Morano, Oracle

Session 2: Accessible High Performance Computing with Docker Enterprise and Containers/strong>

Christine Lovett, Docker Solution Engineer

Security and Compliance is largely a manual paper-based exercise conducted with a myriad of tools, technologies and human labor in spreadsheets and documents. NIST's Open Security Controls Assessment Language (OSCAL) standardizes how security controls are represented (e.g. NIST SP 800-53, ISO/IEC 27001/2, COBIT 5), how you would represent a control implementation for a given system, and how that information is best used with reports generated in a standardized way that can be used by both humans and machines. We'll provide a Technical Overview of this new NIST standard and a working demo of OSCAL in action with Docker Enterprise Edition.

Operating systems, containers, and virtualization are the fundamental building blocks of modern IT infrastructure. Oracle combines them all into one integrated offering: Oracle Container Runtime for Oracle Linux provides a certified infrastructure environment for your most critical enterprise applications. Installable on any server or VM, it helps reduce complexity and save costs when deploying and managing enterprise applications.
