Red Hat® OpenShift® delivers a modern, scalable approach to securing the entire application platform stack, from operating system to container to application.
Red Hat closes acquisition of StackRox.
- Control the trusted sources of content, testing, and deployments.
- Defend applications from attacks and vulnerabilities in all layers of the platform.
- Enable and extend secure services through standard interfaces and APIs.
Managing security is a continuous process. As applications are deployed or updated, it’s critical to provide dynamic security controls to keep the business safe. Red Hat OpenShift can apply security controls to the software supply chain, improving the security of applications without reducing developer productivity. Red Hat allows businesses to control, defend, and extend their application platform throughout the application lifecycle.
Trusted by over 90% of the Fortune 500, Red Hat builds on decades of security experience for today’s applications and into the future**Red Hat client data and Fortune 500 list, June 2017

Security and trusted content sources
With over 70% of public application content having a security vulnerability, it’s critical to work with trusted sources. Red Hat Ecosystem Catalog delivers validated application content from Red Hat Application Services and certified ISV partners.
The new Compliance Operator provides a declarative way to specify and achieve security compliance for the Red Hat OpenShift cluster.
Securing the container registry
Registries play a critical role in the secure software supply-chain, frequently interacting across the application lifecycle. Red Hat OpenShift provides an integrated container registry that allows applications to be scanned for vulnerability and cryptographically signed for trusted identification. When using Red Hat OpenShift with Red Hat Quay with Clair for vulnerability scanning, vulnerability data is visible in the Red Hat OpenShift console.
Securing the build pipeline
The Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) pipeline is at the core of a more secure software supply chain. Red Hat OpenShift integrates tightly with Jenkins and other standard CI/CD tools to manage builds, code inspection, and validation. Red Hat OpenShift S2I allows for secure application builds directly on the platform.
Managing secure container deployments
By default, Red Hat OpenShift prevents containers from running as root. In addition, Red Hat OpenShift enables granular deployment policies that allow operations, security, and compliance teams to enforce quotas, isolation, and access protections.
Managing the secure container application platform
From authentication to authorization to secrets management, Red Hat OpenShift integrates secure operational capabilities to ensure trust between users, applications, and security policies.
Secure container application platform on any cloud
Red Hat OpenShift can be securely deployed across any cloud platform, including bare metal, virtualization, VMware, OpenStack, AWS, Azure, and GCP.
Defend the network
Red Hat OpenShift provides security features for multi-tenant networking and fine-grained network control. All traffic to the control plane is encrypted. Application traffic is encrypted with Red Hat OpenShift Service Mesh.
Secure the data
Red Hat OpenShift provides strong encryption controls to protect sensitive data including platform secrets and application configuration data. Red Hat OpenShift optionally uses FIPS 140-2 Level 1 compliant encryption modules to meet security standards for U.S. federal departments.
Managing secure API endpoints and gateways
Red Hat OpenShift integrates Red Hat 3scale API Management to authenticate, secure, and rate-limit API access to applications and services.
With Red Hat OpenShift Platform Plus, you’ll gain a complete set of powerful, optimized tools to secure, protect, and manage your apps. These tools include Red Hat Advanced Cluster Security for Kubernetes, a fully managed solution that helps protect containerized Kubernetes workloads in all major clouds and hybrid platforms.
Insights into critical vulnerabilities
Red Hat Advanced Cluster Security for Kubernetes integrates with DevOps and security tools to help automate DevSecOps in the build pipeline, enforce security policies, mitigate runtime threats, and minimize operational risk to the applications in Red Hat OpenShift environments.
