Rocket is a cli for running App Containers. The goal of rocket is to be composable, secure, and fast.
- Composable. All tools for downloading, installing, and running containers should be well integrated, but independent and composable.
- Security. Isolation should be pluggable, and the crypto primitives for strong trust, image auditing and application identity should exist from day one.
- Image distribution. Discovery of container images should be simple and facilitate a federated namespace, and distributed retrieval. This opens the possibility of alternative protocols, such as BitTorrent, and deployments to private environments without the requirement of a registry.
- Open. The format and runtime should be well-specified and developed by a community. We want independent implementations of tools to be able to run the same container consistently.
