Control: 3.20 Ensure that the /etc/default/docker file permissions are set to 644 or more restrictively

Description

You should verify that the /etc/default/docker file permissions are correctly set to 644 or more restrictively

The /etc/default/docker file contains sensitive parameters that may alter the behavior of the Docker daemon. It should therefore be writeable only by root in order to ensure that it is not modified by less privileged users.

Remediation

You should execute the following command

chmod 644 /etc/default/docker

This sets the file permissions for this file to 644.

Default Value

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

Usage

Run the control in your terminal:

steampipe check docker_compliance.control.cis_v160_3_20

Snapshot and share results via Steampipe Cloud:

steampipe login
steampipe check --share docker_compliance.control.cis_v160_3_20

SQL

This control uses a named query:

exec_permissions_644_etc_default_docker
