12 ways to improve run-time container security

There still really aren’t many enterprise run-time security tools for containers available, which has skewed the conversation toward establishing defensive barriers prior to run-time – during the build, integration, and deployment stage.
Of course, with rapidly evolving technology like containers, it can be all too easy to overlook the most basic security concerns, so, really, any focus at all is welcome. Efforts pointing out the security advantages of digitally signing container images at build time, and scanning them before they are pushed to the registry, should indeed be heard. The OS should be hardened and attack surfaces should be trimmed where possible. Solutions like Seccomp and AppArmor that introduce security profiles between containers and the host kernel ought to be implemented.
