Docker Online Meetup #39: Docker Security

Victor Coisne

During this week’s Docker Online Meetup, Director of Security at Docker, Inc. Nathan McCauley joined us to discuss all things related to Docker security!

The meetup started with Nathan presenting on securing the software supply chain with Docker (read this blog post on the recently GA Docker Security Scanning for more info). At the end of his presentation, Nathan answered attendees’ questions about Docker security. Scroll down to watch the recorded video and slides from Nathan’s presentation at Docker Online Meetup #39.

Docker Security Scanning

Docker Security Scanning is available today in Docker Cloud for private repo plan customers for a limited time free trial. You can also see scan results for Docker’s Official Images on Docker Hub as long as you are logged in, regardless of if you are a subscriber or not. Security scanning will be expanding soon to Docker Datacenter and Docker Cloud public repo users.

Try in Docker Cloud:

To try this feature, go to Account Settings > Plans and select the checkbox. Once activated, the three most recent tags for each private repo will be scanned and the resulting BOM displayed in the tags section within 24 hours. Afterwards, Docker Security Scanning will scan your image tag every time you push.

The screenshot below shows the plans page of a user with a 5 private repo plan. The checkbox to opt-in to Docker Security Scanning appears at the bottom of the Plan summary.

We are so excited about this that we are giving every private repo plan customer a limited time free trial for three months starting today.

If you have a Docker Hub account and have never tried Docker Cloud – don’t worry! Your same login credentials work in Docker Cloud. The native integration ensures that your Docker Hub repos display within the Docker Cloud “Repositories” section. Private repo plans start at $7 per month for 5 private repositories and are available within Docker Cloud.
