Get Started with Container Security

Complete the following tasks in the order listed to get started with Container Security.

  1. Log In to Container Security.
  2. Review the container terminology.
  3. Activate your account and log in to the web portal.
  4. Generate Access and Secret keys for the API.
  5. After you complete the getting started tasks, you can import and scan your container images.

    • If you want to import a specific image to Container Security for scanning, pull the image from your registry, or Docker Hub, and then push it to the Container Security registry.
    • If you want to import all the images from a registry to Container Security for scanning, configure a connector to import images from a registry.
    • If you want to scan an image directly from your organization's local registry, or from your machine, download and run the Container Security Scanner.

After you complete these initial tasks, you can navigate the Container Security dashboard to view and manage your scan data.

Note: Container Security imports and rescans your images at eight-hour intervals, beginning when you first import and scan the images.
