Five Steps to Container Security
In order to understand what container security is, we first need to fully understand what containers are. Containers usually consist of an engine and an image. The engine runs applications, with all the information required to run the application stored in the image.
They are packaged together, as a whole, so that the application can run within the container, independently of the host infrastructure. This means that the container is a moveable or portable computing environment that can run on a number of different hosts or hardware types.
