Docker Aims to Improve Linux Kernel Security with LinuxKit

Container vendor Docker is aiming to help improve Linux kernel security by incubating several nascent Linux security projects, within its LinuxKit community. LinuxKit is an open-source effort that Docker officially announced on April 18, as a toolkit to build container-optimized Linux distributions.

“Security is critically important for Docker and LinuxKit represents and opportunity for us to help move security forward,” Nathan McCauley, Director of Security at Docker Inc, told eWEEK.
