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 Anchore. 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.
