Solutions Delivery Platform

SDP Container Images in Iron Bank

The container images comprising the Solutions Delivery Platform have been accredited for use throughout the Department of Defense (DoD) and are current published to the Iron Bank container registry.

What is Iron Bank?

Iron Bank is a container registry maintained by the Platform One team. In order for a container image to be hosted in Iron Bank and marked approved, the image must pass a stringent container hardening pipeline in alignment with the DoD container hardening document. Findings from this container hardening pipeline must either be patched or justifications provided to the Chief Software Office (CSO) of the Air Force (AF), Nic Chaillan, to accept the risk.

What are these images for?
