Host security

It is recommended to enable local Linux firewall on the host. The newbIT TSA Ansible playbook can manage the required communication port for the solution on your local system.

Please read in the Ansible configuration section how to enable local firewall configuration for the TSA: System firewall

For details information about the required Firewall rule, read in the Requirements section chapter Required Ports for nTSA

The newbIT TSA use only Docker images from trust source (Vendor), and if available only images of the offical Docker Repository on the Docker Hub. Offical images are scanned using Docker Cloud’s Security Scanning service. The results of security scanner get published, for each image version (Tag) in the Docker Hub, and provides you details about which layers in the image and which components within the layer are vulnerable. Each individual vulnerable of the image includes details with a link to the official CVE report.

The security scan reports are only available once you login, we encourage you to create for your organization at leased on Docker Hub account.
