According to a recent press release, “Cloudera, the global provider of the fastest, easiest, and most secure data management, analytics and machine learning platform built on the latest open source technologies, today announced that it has partnered with Docker, Inc. to provide Commercially Supported (CS) Docker Engines with a jointly developed solution to secure Docker container volumes. This integrated solution allows government agencies to share data via cryptographically secure containers as part of a partnership where Cloudera provides level one and level two technical support backed by Docker, Inc. Docker and Cloudera worked in close collaboration to meet the specific needs of government agencies. Because these agencies often have sensitive workloads where portability and security are necessary, the two companies worked together on an integration that would protect the code and data running in containerized workloads. Docker and Cloudera made sure that all data and code are protected both in transit, at rest, and at runtime.”
The release goes on, “The integrated solution is based on Cloudera Navigator Encrypt running on Docker, Inc’s CS Engine. Cloudera Navigator Encrypt transparently encrypts and secures data at rest without requiring changes to applications and ensuring there is minimal performance lag in the encryption or decryption process. Advanced key management with Cloudera Navigator Key Trustee Server and process-based access controls in Navigator Encrypt enable organizations to meet compliance regulations and help protect organizations from unauthorized parties or malicious actors gaining access to encrypted data. Docker wraps software in a complete filesystem aka container that includes an application and its dependencies which allows applications to run anywhere. In addition, Docker Content Trust based on The Update Framework (TUF) provides the most secure content distribution model for verifying the creator of a specific dockerized application.”
