Mobile application development world is enlarging day by day due to increasing number of smartphone users around the globe. Along with the consistent innovative addition in the mobile app technology large-scale usability of mobiles apps in a business world drastically changed the aspects of the mobile application. Thousands of mobile application released over the platforms in a week and many become the victims of attack due to a security issue. A new technology or wave of security is introduced in mobile app security system called intent-based security. The basic concept of intent-based security is observing the mobile application totally in a new way, specifically application which are in the containerized environment, down to application level and adding in extra security. This technique is all about utilizing the developer knowledge and power to create a more predictable and secure environment.

What is intended -based mobile app security?

The aim of this advancement in mobile app technology is to deliver an extra layer of protection to the mobile application. Understanding what exactly application is going to deliver and what is the app is intended or what is designed to occur helps the developer to ensure a well secured and a perfectly protected environment from various mobile app threat. Earlier when developers built an app and they were ready to deploy it, they need to sit with the security team and elaborate them how it worked and its behavior manually. Then security goes through multiple tools to establish certain rules for allowing app behaviors. Now developer when built a container -based application, all the workflow, and app behavior with all needed information is automatically embedded in created artifacts. This increased flow of technical information provides the specific automation needed to develop a perfect environment to apply intent-based security.

Here are 3  Pillars of intent-based security for Containers

As intent-based security adds a new level of protection in a containerized app, as the developer must be able to define entire OS stack for the containers to run efficiently.     

1.Containers are Declarative

In an application when a developer provides some manifest or artifacts that describe how an application works and how it will react to the environment. This makes very easy to deduct the behavior of the application and extract very useful data in order to provide a secure environment.

2.Container is Predictable

The behavior of a piece of software given by developer having container will be more predictable as it contains less specific logic and more common building blocks.If you are creating a container, you don't need to write the OS from an elementary level you just take an Ubuntu And if you are using MySQL you just put a MySQL layer in that container afterward on the top of it there is a database with a thin layer of configuration. This piece of software is pretty predictable as it holds common building blocks not much logic in it. This allows you to easily assume what that piece is supposed to do or act.

3.Containers are Immutable

Previously it was almost impossible to realize if something is happening with the application is an attack or change. With the container-based application, any change of real content is never happening in real time. Basically, a developer makes some changes then pushes it through new version. He adds new functionality and then pushes in the new container with the removal of the old one. You have a more significant idea as a security point of view as for the first time if something changes in application behavior are either a configurational drift or real mobile app threat.

Wrap up

Intent-Based security is an amazing security system that helps an organization to ensure the ultimate safety and flexible protected features. This technology serves a unique and invincible security aspect to a containerized application which helps them in long-term survival.
