Does my proxied server need to use HTTPS protocol with docker linking?

I am running several docker containers for a very small web app: nginx, node, and redis. These containers are all linked together using the legacy methods (not a network) with the pattern

nginx --proxies-> node --uses-> redis

  • Not receiving UDP traffic on port exposed in Docker container running on Docker for Windows. How to debug?
  • Docker exporting container
  • Datanode denied communication with namenode because hostname cannot be resolved
  • Null port bindings from inspect, the first time. a second time good. why?
  • logspout write: connection refused
  • iTerm login error message about docker daemon
  • My nginx proxy is set up to use HTTPS but my node server (using hapi.js) is not. Is this a security issue?

  • docker pull through cache for private registry not working
  • Can we deploy an mvc 4 app to docker with windows container?
  • Docker, how to remote ssh from command line host to a docker container?

    It isn’t security issue if you aren’t sending your data from nginx to node using public networks. If your HTTP traffic will be transfered inside one host machine and this host machine is fully controlling by you it will be unreachable for external access.

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
