About the Book

Book description

Secure your applications and development environments with Docker and Kubernetes

Key Features

● Introducing Container platforms (Docker, Kubernetes, Swarm, OpenShift)
● Discover how to manage high availability with Docker Swarm and Kubernetes
● Learn how Docker can manage the security in images and containers
● Discover how Docker can be integrated into development workflows in applications
● Discover vulnerabilities in the Docker containers and images with practical examples to secure your container-based applications
● Discover tools for monitoring and administration Docker and Kubernetes applications


Through this book, we will introduce the DevOps tools ecosystem and the main containers orchestration tools through an introduction to some platforms such as Kubernetes, Docker Swarm, and OpenShift.
Among other topics, both good practices will be addressed when constructing the Docker images as well as best security practices to be applied at the level of the host in which those containers are executed, from Docker's own daemon to the rest of the components that make up its technological stack.
We will review the topics such as static analysis of vulnerabilities on Docker images, the signing of images with Docker Content Trust and their subsequent publication in a Docker Registry will be addressed. Also, we will review the security state in Kubernetes.
In the last section, we will review container management and administration open source tools for IT organizations that need to manage and monitor container-based applications, reviewing topics such as monitoring, administration, and networking in Docker.

What will you learn

● Learn fundamental DevOps skills and tools, starting with the basic components and concepts of Docker.
● Learn about Docker as a platform for the deployment of containers and Docker images taking into account the security of applications.
