Configure Connectors to Import and Scan Images

Required User Role: Administrator

Connectors act as links to local or third-party registries. You can use connectors to access these registries and then import image data from them to Tenable.io Container Security.

To import and analyze container images, you must configure a connector to a registry or, in certain cases, to the registry's own connector.

After you configure your connectors, you can view and manage your connectors from the Settings page in Tenable.io. For more information about connectors, see Connectors in the Tenable.io Vulnerability Management User Guide.

The amount of time Tenable.io Container Security takes to scan your images and display the results depends on the size and number of images you scan.

Note: If you use a connector to import and scan your images, it may take several hours for all your scans to appear on the Tenable.io Container Security dashboard.

Note: If your images do not appear on the Tenable.io Container Security dashboard within 24 hours of when you begin the import, contact Tenable Support.

Tenable.io Container Security Connectors

Note: Tenable.io Container Security does not support connector configurations for Azure Container Registries (ACR). To import images from an ACR registry, use the Tenable.io Container Security Scanner.

Tenable.io Container Security supports image imports via the following connectors.

Connector Description

Note: To import assets from an AWS ECR, Tenable.io Container Security requires read-only access to your AWS account.

Docker

Connector for assets hosted in a Docker-compatible registry. To configure a connector for a Docker EE registry, see Configure a Local Connector to Import Images.

Note: If your registry is not listed but is compatible with Docker Registry API version 2.0, select this connector. For information about Docker-compatible connectors, see the Docker Documentation.
