Ive read a lot about container ( mostly docker) technology and its limitations in terms of security.
I note that MDM/MAM solutions use containers to secure enterprise data. The idea being that the enterprise data can be remotely wiped if it is held in a sandbox.
Now having read about securing Docker containers I am aware that containers are not very secure (they do not contain, for example, if all of the kernel functions are not name-spaced).
Similarly, there are steps that may be taken to harden containers against misuse.
Thus it is only right to conclude that all mobile containers are not made equal. So my question is how to assess these different container implementations if they are hidden? Some sort of black box testing is in order..... what would be a reasoned approach/tools
In the full realization that if the device itself falls into the wrong hands then all bets are off security wise. To buy into this technology you must be able to appraise the security of the container and not jut take it on trust that it is "good".
