The Most Comprehensive Container Security Inspection Platform

XcellHost performs deep inspection of container images, generating a detailed software bill-of-materials and allowing you to apply specific policy gates and checks for your entire container workload on premises and in the cloud.

Vulnerability Scanning

Perform a detailed and thorough scan for any known vulnerabilities in your application and operating system packages

Secrets & Passwords

Ensure all secrets are not present in your image including passwords, API keys, and any other sensitive information

Operating System Packages

XcellHost performs a thorough scan on your container image to identify any known operating system packages

3rd Party Libraries

Easily identify non-OS third party libraries, including Node.js NPM’s, Ruby GEM’s, Python PIP, PERL CPAN, and JAVA archives


Whitelist elements of your image when performing analysis to ensure that detection does not block the deployment of an image


With XcellHost you can easily blacklist elements like usernames, user ID’s, licenses, packages, or images in their entirety

Dockerfile Checks

Analyze and perform a check on the contents of a Dockerfile or the Docker history for any container image

Other Checks

Container Security Mechanisms

Linux Kernel namespaces

Linux control groups (cgroups)

Linux capabilities

Linux security mechanism AppArmor, SELinux

The docker daemon in Container Security Mechanisms

Linux Kernel namespaces

Docker uses namespaces of several kinds to implement the isolation that containers require to remain portable and abstain from affecting the remainder of the host system E.g., process id

Linux control groups (cgroups)

Provide a mechanism for efficiently running and monitoring system resources, by partitioning things like CPU time, system memory, disk, and network bandwidth, into groups, then assigning tasks to those groups.

The docker daemon in Container Security Mechanisms

  • Docker daemon is the mastermind behind the whole operation.
  • When docker run command is used to start up a container, the docker client will transpose that command into an HTTP API call and transmits it to docker daemon Docker daemon then assesses the request, talks to the underlying OS and provisions your container.

Linux capabilities

This feature aims to break up the power of the superuser so that an application requiring some privilege does not get all rights.

Linux security mechanism AppArmor, SELinux

SElinux acts as a protective agent on servers. SELinux relies on compulsory access controls (MAC) that restrain users to rules and procedures established by the system administrator.


At times, Azure can be a very complicated platform. It can take a while to understand the entire platform comprehensively. Your IT team may need to spend hours to understand Azure completely. There are wide range of options available for Azure deployment, which can overwhelm a first-time user. Also, the Azure platform is unmanaged.
