Open Container Initiative Runtime Specification
The Open Container Initiative develops specifications for standards on Operating System process and application containers.
Protocols defined by this specification are:
- Linux containers: runtime.md, config.md, config-linux.md, and runtime-linux.md.
- Solaris containers: runtime.md, config.md, and config-solaris.md.
- Windows containers: runtime.md, config.md, and config-windows.md.

An implementation is not compliant for a given CPU architecture if it fails to satisfy one or more of the MUST, REQUIRED, or SHALL requirements for the protocols it implements. An implementation is compliant for a given CPU architecture if it satisfies all the MUST, REQUIRED, and SHALL requirements for the protocols it implements.
