A human is the weakest link in cyber security and tools like Wifiphisher cement the fact. This tool exploits this weak link by launching a social-engineering attack leading the user to a phishing page and then you can get the users password or install your stuff.
The Docker security god must surely be smiling and thinking he must have done something right to have tools like Dagda that helps in performing static analysis of known vulnerabilities on Docker containers. If you did not get my “Docker security guard” analogy, I won’t blame you either. Google told me that Dagda is an important god of Irish mythology.
Since my last posts (Anchore & Docker Scan) were about Docker security, I thought I should continue the trend and blog about Sysdig Falco, the open source behavioral activity monitor with container support.
At work, I wanted to check if there were any vulnerabilities in the JAVA libraries that were being used. This is when I remembered of an old project – OWASP Dependency-Check. I was pleasantly surprised to see that it was still being updated and maintained by Jeremy Long.
It really did work for me and I ended up updating the few libraries that were being used in my project!

Wow! It is raining container security suites now! What with our last post being about Dockerscan and this is about Anchore; a robust container analysis, inspection and control system. An automated tweet went out and Scott Francis alerted me about this open source analysis system. I thought of checking it out and here we are.
What better way to kick off the first blog post than talk about a tool which deals with Docker security. Docker is an open-source project that automates the deployment of applications inside software containers. These containers bundle up pieces of software in a complete filesystem that has everything it needs to run, so that you can package your applications into a singular unit. This is where Dockerscan comes into the picture.
