2017-08-02: LinuxKit Security SIG Recap

Hi all,

Thank you for joining us during the LinuxKit Security SIG meeting last week!

We’ve compiled the notes and video from this meeting, in case you missed us or would like to revisit the discussion:

Natanael Copa presented the security decisions and roadmap for Alpine Linux, a lightweight Linux distro based on musl libc and busybox. This was particularly interesting as LinuxKit leverages much of its tooling from Alpine, and the two projects share similar security intuitions.

Please feel free to comment here if you have any questions about the content.

The next meeting will be held on August 16th at 9am PT, the draft agenda will be posted soon.
Sneak preview: we will be learning about okernel, a project to split the kernel into separate “inner” and “outer” kernels by privilege level.
