Red Hat Advances Docker Container Development, Certification

Red Hat already certifies ISV applications to run on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and maintains the existing certification criteria for Red Hat Enterprise Linux ISV apps for the certified container apps, Ghosh said. With certified containers, ISVs can include more than one application or tool inside a given container, he added.

Additionally, Red Hat will inspect the container to verify that a RHEL platform image is used as the starting layer, the platform hasn’t been tampered with and the container does not incorporate any platform packages that contain known vulnerabilities.
