While cost savings and better application deployments are examples of application virtualization benefits, organizations are looking beyond this primary focus on delivering applications. Particularly, as organizations embraced ways to implement change faster, the challenge became maintaining consistency and reliability as software migrated from one computing environment to another. Application containers can be used to mitigate this challenge because they consist of the application and all of the application’s dependencies such as libraries and configuration files. To provide assurance that application containers are maintaining consistency and reliability, ISACA’s Application Container Audit/Assurance Program considers preservation of data integrity through all phases of application containerization (planning, development, deployment, maintenance, and destruction).

Audit Objectives

The primary purpose of this audit program is to assist IT auditors in their assessments of application container deployments. Accordingly, this audit program takes into consideration assurance around:

œ Clarity in roles and responsibilities given the larger role in security played by developers with application containers

œ Safeguarding of the host operating system by deactivation of unnecessary services

œ Mitigation of risks associated with use of a shared kernel, which is inherent in the application container infrastructure

œ Confidentiality of network traffic between application containers on the same host
