In a Swarm, a worker node executes a task assigned to it by a manager node.

On the security front, nodes that participate in a Swarm use TLS encryption between them in order to secure communication and keep your data safe from prying eyes. Universal Control Plane Docker's Universal Control Plane (UCP), part of Docker EE Stan- dard and Advanced, is an enterprise-grade cluster management solution that adds a graphical user interface (GUI) and secu- rity features atop Swarm and also includes some monitoring capabilities.
