Least Privilege Container Orchestration
The Docker platform and the container has become the standard for packaging, deploying, and managing applications. In order to coordinate running containers across multiple nodes in a cluster, a key capability is required: a container orchestrator.
Orchestrators are responsible for critical clustering and scheduling tasks, such as:
- Managing container scheduling and resource allocation.
- Support service discovery and hitless application deploys.
- Distribute the necessary resources that applications need to run.
Unfortunately, the distributed nature of orchestrators and the ephemeral nature of resources in this environment makes securing orchestrators a challenging task. In this post, we will describe in detail the less-considered—yet vital—aspect of the security model of container orchestrators, and how Docker Enterprise Edition with its built-in orchestration capability, Swarm mode, overcomes these difficulties.
