Control: 3.17 Ensure that the daemon.json file ownership is set to root:root

Description

You should verify that the daemon.json file individual ownership and group ownership is correctly set to root, if it is in use.

The daemon.json file contains sensitive parameters that could alter the behavior of the docker daemon. It should therefore be owned and group owned by root to ensure it can not be modified by less privileged users.

Remediation

If the daemon.json file is present, you should execute the command below:

chown root:root /etc/docker/daemon.json

This sets the ownership and group ownership for the file to root.

Default Value

This file may not be present on the system, and in that case, this recommendation is not applicable.

Usage

Run the control in your terminal:

steampipe check docker_compliance.control.cis_v160_3_17

Snapshot and share results via Steampipe Cloud:

steampipe login
steampipe check --share docker_compliance.control.cis_v160_3_17

SQL

This control uses a named query:

exec_ownership_root_root_daemon_json
