  • Separation of concerns by using specialized different Docker containers for security-related functions (e.g., logging). Interesting how Docker became a medium of collaboration across different silos as different roles created containers to support their functions. Security owning proxy and communication point between containers, servers. (via session at Container Days Boston)
