CoreOS Builds Open-Source Clair to Improve Container Security

Containers offer users a new more optimized way to run virtualized applications at scale, but what about security? Any user can pull down a container application from an image repository without knowing if the application is safe. A new open-source project from CoreOS called Clair is aiming to solve part of the challenge by providing a security system that scans containers’ images for known vulnerabilities.
