SSL Certificate Requirements
If the registry that hosts your images requires the HTTPS protocol, you must have an SSL certificate signed by a trusted Certificate Authority (CA) installed on the registry. Refer to your registry's documentation for installing an SSL certificate.
Note: Mozilla's CA Certificate Store is the Tenable Container Security Scanner's trusted certificate authority.
Note: If you want the Container Security Scanner to scan the registry without verifying that a trusted CA signed the certificate, you must include the ALLOW_INSECURE_SSL_REGISTRY variable when you run the scanner. For more information, see Environment Variables.
