Snyk Powers Docker Vulnerability Scanning

The most efficient way to fix container vulnerabilities and deploy secure containers

Secure your container images early in your software application development lifecycle

Snyk and Docker integrate to bring security natively into the container workflow to enhance your development process and productivity.

DevSecOps with Docker and Snyk

Implementing open source and container security across the toolchain


Snyk integrates security natively into Docker products

This allows developers to:

  • Scan early, before pushing to the registry, to fix issues before they hit production

  • Build, test, and release secure software faster

  • Save time fixing vulnerabilities with easy-to-use commands

  • Reduce friction by using familiar container development tools and workflows

This allows developer team managers to:

  • Implement scanning without needing advanced security expertise

  • Keep developers focused on building and running applications, instead of parsing CVE reports

  • Find and fix vulnerabilities early to reduce costs by factor of 5x

  • Stay informed about vulnerabilities in images

Start secure and push with confidence – all within the Docker CLI or Docker Desktop

Docker Desktop embeds Snyk so you can scan your containers for vulnerabilities as you code. Snyk provides prioritized, actionable insights and recommendations for remediation in your images directly within Docker Desktop.

Recommendations for upgrading the base image

Snyk detects the base image and provides upgrade advice. Using an alternative base image is an easy, efficient way to eliminate high-severity vulnerabilities.

Collaborate and code with security assurance in Docker Hub, scanning images as they’re published

Configure Docker Hub to automatically trigger scanning when an image is pushed to the Hub. Once scanned, view the scanning results either in Docker Hub or within Docker Desktop.

Images stored in Docker Hub are continuously monitored for new vulnerabilities, so teams are always aware of the latest security state of their images.
