Abstract

As Docker is slowly transforming the virtualization and deployment world, it is essential it does not have any security loopholes. But due to resource and kernel sharing with the host and no inbuilt authentication mechanism Docker greatly increases the surface area of the attack on the host machine. This paper addresses ARP poison attacks among docker containers, which is one among the many security issues in Docker. As there is no definitive way of creating a container, this paper suggests a way to effectively detect an ARP poisoned container by creating containers in a framework.
