Mastering Docker - Third Edition

Overview of this book

Docker has been a game-changer when it comes to how modern applications are deployed and created. It has now grown into a key driver of innovation beyond system administration, with an impact on the world of web development. But how can you make sure you're keeping up with the innovations it's driving, or be sure you're using it to its full potential? Mastering Docker shows you how; this book not only demonstrates how to use Docker more effectively, but also helps you rethink and reimagine what's possible with it. You will cover concepts such as building, managing, and storing images, along with best practices to make you confident, before delving more into Docker security. You'll find everything related to extending and integrating Docker in new and innovative ways. Docker Compose, Docker Swarm, and Kubernetes will help you take control of your containers in an efficient manner. By the end of the book, you will have a broad, yet detailed, sense of what's possible with Docker, and how seamlessly it fits in with a range of other platforms and tools.

Docker Trusted Registry

One of the components that ships with the commercial Docker Enterprise Edition (Docker EE) is Docker Trusted Registry (DTR). Think of it as a version of Docker Hub that you can host in your own infrastructure. DTR adds the following features on top of the ones provided by the free Docker Hub and Docker Registry:

  • Integration into your authentication services, such as Active Directory or LDAP
  • Deployment on your own infrastructure (or cloud) behind your firewall
  • Image signing to ensure your images are trusted
  • Built-in security scanning
  • Access to prioritized support directly from Docker
