Munki, Docker and why you’d want to even try. The video!

The end game: Have a Munki Repo that requires client side ssl certs for authentication (as a means to protect for un authorized access to a repo) and hosted in a docker environment (for easy maintenance and recreation of servers in multiple locations.
