Today, Docker, in partnership with Microsoft, is making it easy for organizations to build compliant enterprise containers-as-a-service (CaaS) solutions—and announced NIST 800-53 Revision 4 security and privacy control guidance for Docker Datacenter at the FedRAMP Moderate baseline, built on Azure Blueprint.
This documentation is available in "the form of a System Security Plan (SSP) template that can be used to help lessen the time it takes for an agency to certify Docker Datacenter running on Azure Government," writes azure team.
Docker is also releasing this content using OpenControl, which is an open source "compliance-as-code" schema and toolkit that helps software vendors and organizations build compliance documentation.
In addition, Docker also incorporated the use of Microsoft's Cognitive Services Text Analytics API to use natural language processing to check the integrity of the actual security narratives and ensure that it complies with the NIST 800-53 control definitions.
