Reading Time: 4 minutesAt Shopblocks, each customer receives several temporary subdomains so that they can access their website, admin system, and static assets.

A Secure Supply Chain for Kubernetes 16:30 • over a year ago

The beta release of the Docker Enterprise Edition (Docker EE) container platform last month integrates Kubernetes orchestration, running alongside Swarm, to provide a single container platform that supports both legacy and new applications running on-premises or in the cloud. For organizations that are exploring Kubernetes or deploying it in production, Docker EE offers integrated security for the entire lifecycle of a containerized application, providing an additional layer of security before the workload is deployed by Kubernetes and continuing to secure the application while it is running. Mike Coleman previously discussed access controls for Kubernetes. This week we’ll begin discussing how Docker EE secures the Kubernetes supply chain. What is a Software Supply Chain? When you purcha

Video Series: Modernizing .NET Apps for Developers 17:00 • over a year ago

 Docker Enterprise Edition (EE)  is the container platform for modernizing your existing applications, and running them in the cloud or on-premises. You can take monoliths and run them in containers with no code changes, and that gets you portability, security and efficiency. Running in Docker is also a great starting point for modernizing the application architecture. You can breaking down the monolith into smaller, independent components which makes it easier to deploy updates, manage scale and introduce new technologies. This new video series covers app modernization, for .NET developers and architects. It walks through the evolution of a monolithic ASP.NET 3.5 app to a distributed application running across multiple containers, using the Docker platform to plug everything together an

Security advisory: Log token allowing access to other endpoints 00:00 • over a year ago

In November last year the token issued for displaying job logs on Travis CI was incorrectly valid for two other endpoints. This issue was discovered on Wednesday 14 February, 2018 and fixed the next day. Further investigation into historical data found no successful attempts at fetching non-log endpoints with the log token. This indicates the issue was not exploited in any way.

When displaying job’s log on Travis CI we also show a button to retrieve a raw version of the log. If a repository is private, the link to the raw log contains a log token for convenience so that, for example, the log can be opened in a new browser tab. The token is valid for 24 hours and should only be valid for that specific log.

In November last year we were updating the V3 version

Docker Compose and Kubernetes with Docker for Desktop 17:45 • over a year ago

If you’re running an edge version of Docker on your desktop (Docker for Mac or Docker for Windows Desktop), you can now stand up a single-node Kubernetes cluster with the click of a button. While I’m not a developer, I think this is great news for the millions of developers who have already been using Docker on their Macbook or Windows laptop because they now have a fully compliant Kubernetes cluster at their fingertips without installing any other tools. Developers using Docker to build containerized applications often build Docker Compose files to deploy them. With the integration of Kubernetes into the Docker product line, some developers may want to leverage their existing Compose files but deploy these applications in Kubernetes. There is, of course, Kompose, but that’s a translatio
