Many organizations are running applications in cloud native environments, using containers and orchestration to facilitate scalability and resilience. But how do you know whether your deployment is secure? To fully grasp the security implications of containers and their operation, you need an understanding of what they are and how they work.

This practical book dives into the underlying technologies and components that these systems rely on to leave you better equipped to assess the security risks and potential solutions applicable to your environment. Author Liz Rice explores the building blocks and security boundaries commonly used in container-based systems and how they're constructed in Linux.
