As security continues to be a critical need for organizations building and running Kubernetes applications, the StackRox community will work toward providing an open source project that gives users greater choice for how they protect their Kubernetes environments.
Once up and running, the StackRox project will enable users to address major security use cases across the application lifecycle, including visibility, vulnerability management, configuration management, network segmentation, compliance, threat detection and incident response, as well as risk profiling.
Red Hat also plans to make contributions to open source projects that the StackRox software benefits from and participate as active members of the communities that support those projects.
The StackRox project will be the code behind the Red Hat Advanced Cluster Security for Kubernetes product and the company expects the project to help drive future product roadmaps.
The StackRox community will also encompass and continue to foster development of KubeLinter, which was released as an open source project in October 2020.
KubeLinter is a static analysis tool that gives developers the ability to more easily check Kubernetes YAML files and Helm charts to identify misconfigurations and enforce security best practices.
