Get Started with Container Security

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

  1. Activate your account and log in to the web portal.
  2. Review the requirements described in Container Security Requirements.
  3. Review the user permissions assigned to each user role.
  4. Generate Access and Secret keys for the API.
  5. Import and scan your container images.

    If your images do not appear on the dashboard within 24 hour, contact support.

    • If you want to upload a specific image to Container Security for scanning, download the image from your external registry and push the image to Container Security.
    • 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 regular intervals, beginning when you first import and scan the images.
