Control: 3.13 Ensure that the Docker server certificate key file ownership is set to root:root

Description

You should verify that the Docker server certificate key file (the file that is passed along with the --tlskey parameter) is individually owned and group owned by root.

The Docker server certificate key file should be protected from any tampering or unneeded reads/writes. As it holds the private key for the Docker server certificate, it must be individually owned and group owned by root to ensure that it cannot be accessed by less privileged users.

Remediation

The following command could be executed:

chown root:root <path to Docker server certificate key file>

This sets the individual ownership and group ownership for the Docker server certificate key file to root.

Default Value

By default, the individual ownership and group ownership for the Docker server certificate key file is correctly set to root.

Usage

Run the control in your terminal:

steampipe check docker_compliance.control.cis_v160_3_13

Snapshot and share results via Steampipe Cloud:

steampipe login
steampipe check --share docker_compliance.control.cis_v160_3_13

SQL

This control uses a named query:

exec_ownership_root_root_docker_server_certificate_key
