Discussion

The container platform is responsible for pulling images from trusted sources and placing those images into its registry. To protect the transmission of images, the container platform must use FIPS-validated 140-2 or 140-3 cryptographic modules. This added protection defends against main-in-the-middle attacks where malicious code could be added to an image during transmission.

Fix Text

Configure the container platform to use FIPS-validated 140-2 or 140-3 cryptographic modules to protect container images during transmission.

Check Content

Review the container platform configuration to determine if FIPS-validated 140-2 or 140-3 cryptographic modules are being used to protect container images during transmission. If FIPS-validated 140-2 or 140-3 cryptographic modules are not being use, this is a finding.
