Welcome! This lab demonstrates a workflow using Docker Desktop, Docker Hub, GitHub, and Snyk.

Lab Meta

Difficulty: Beginner
Time: Approximately 30 minutes
This lab walks you through the demo shown in Docker Build: Build Secure Containers with Docker and Snyk. We'll secure a containerized application in three ways:
  1. 1.
    First we ensure our container uses a secure base image,
  2. 2.
    Next we address any vulnerable application dependencies
  3. 3.
    Finally, we check its deployment manifests for misconfiguration.
