Technical Requirements

You must satisfy technical requirements to deploy applications securely and at scale onto the Game Warden platform. Ensure applications meet these specifications prior to contacting the Game Warden team.


Requirement Detail
Applications must be containerized. Application must reside within containers and comply with standards specific to the Open Container Initiative.
You must have services for seeding databases, or you must provide scripts for the Game Warden team to execute for you. At IL4, you will not have write access to your production database.
Architecture MUST run on AMD64/X86 We do not currently support ARM.


Requirement Detail
Applications must meet ATO security requirements.
  • Our team scans applications for security vulnerabilities, and you must resolve them per our Acceptance Baseline Criteria. You must regularly update your components to align with ATO security standards, ensuring they remain secure and compliant.
  • Applications are are continuously scanned against newly developed/discovered CVEs - your team must resolve these newly surfaced CVEs as they appear, even after deployment.
Applications must integrate with a DoD-approved authentication and authorization service. Our team supports two Department of Defense (DoD)-approved services: Game Warden and Platform One.
You must have CACs, ECAs, or PIVs to access IL4+ applications. You must navigate the DoD vetting process to secure either a Common Access Card (CAC) or a Federal Personal Identity Verification (PIV) card from a mission sponsor. You also may obtain an External Certification Authority (ECA) card from an approved third party.
Application data must adhere to classification limits. Permitted data includes Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI), Personally Identifiable Information (PII), IL2, IL4, and IL5 along with data specific to the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). Contact the Game Warden team for data associated with IL6, Special Access Programs (SAP), or Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI).


The Game Warden team will work with you to ensure your product aligns with these technical requirements and, going forward, provide any necessary insight to help you launch your application. Contact us at Growth for additional information.
