Building and Deploying Docker Image

The NSO configuration is set up to listen to port 8080 to avoid requiring root to run it, so remember to use port mapping when you start the container:

docker run -p

Running the Validator in AWS

The current instance is running on Docker on an AWS EC2 t2.micro instance. The docker image is pushed to a repository in Amazon ECS and then pulled from the EC2 instance.

Remember to set up the appropriate Security Group definition for the EC2 instance if you expect to reach the web server from the outside.
