Estimated reading time: 1 minute

NIST Interagency Report (NISTIR) 8176, Security Assurance Requiements for Linux Application Container Deployments, is a detailed report that highlights the effectiveness of application container security on Linux-based infrastructure. It demonstrates the use of container security configurations at various layers of the stack; from hardware root of trust, to host OS kernel, container runtime configuration, and the containerized software supply chain. The report is a complement to NIST SP 800-190 and NIST ITL Bulletin October 2017 and is not specific to any one container runtime.
