Estimated reading time: 1 minute

In September 2017, NIST released Special Publication (SP) 800-190, Application Container Security Guide. SP 800-190 includes guidance and recommendations for the secure use of containers, and incorporates elements of operating system and container runtime security.

The publication merely serves as a guide and only calls out examples specific of the Docker container runtime where applicable. The intent of this publication is to help enhance your organizational standards and support your risk management processes as they pertain to container usage.
