CIS Docker EE benchmark

Estimated reading time: 1 minute

In January 2018, in partnership with the Center for Internet Security (CIS) and Microsoft, we began to collaborate on an updated version of the CIS Docker Benchmark to incorporate Docker Enterprise Edition security recommendations. This includes Docker EE Engine, Docker Trusted Registry (DTR), and Universal Control Plane (UCP). These updates will also include configuration items for Docker EE Engine on Windows Server, Windows Server host items, and Windows-based Docker image recommendations. We anticipate completion of the draft and final update of the Benchmark in the February timeframe.

You can follow along and contribute to the development of this updated Benchmark by joining the CIS Docker Benchmarks Community in CIS WorkBench. The initial announcement of these updates can also be found in the Community Discussions here.

In the interim, you can reference the existing CIS Docker CE Benchmark recommendations per our guidance here and refer to our latest Docker EE Security Reference Architecture. We will update this page accordingly once the new CIS Benchmark updates have been completed.
