NISTIR 8176 Security Assurance Requirements for Linux Application Container

NISTIR 8176 FINAL 12 Oct 2017Application Containers are slowly finding adoption in enterprise IT infrastructures. Security guidelines and countermeasures have been proposed to address security concerns associated with the deployment of application container platforms. To assess the effectiveness of the security solutions implemented based on these recommendations, it is necessary to analyze those solutions and outline the security assurance requirements they must satisfy to meet their intended objectives. This is the contribution of this document. The focus is on application containers on a Linux platform. Includes a list of applicable NIST, UFC, and MIL-HDBK cybersecurity publications for consideration. Why buy a book you can download for free?First you gotta find a good clean (legible) copy and make sure it’s the latest version (not always easy). Some documents found on the web are missing some pages or the image quality is so poor, they are difficult to read. We look over each document carefully and replace poor quality images by going back to the original source document. We proof each document to make sure it’s all there – including all changes. If you find a good copy, you could print it using a network printer you share with 100 other people (typically its either out of paper or toner). If it’s just a 10-page document, no problem, but if it’s 250-pages, you will need to punch 3 holes in all those pages and put it in a 3-ring binder. Takes at least an hour. It’s much more cost-effective to just order the latest version from Amazon.comThis book is published by 4th Watch Books and includes copyright material.
