What does this control test

Check if there is AppArmor or Seccomp or SELinux or Capabilities are defined in the securityContext of container and pod. If none of these fields are defined for both the container and pod, alert.


You can use AppArmor, Seccomp, SELinux and Linux Capabilities mechanisms to restrict containers abilities to utilize unwanted privileges.
