atomic-scan - Scan for CVEs in a container or image
atomic scan [-h|--help] [--list] [--scanner] [--scan_type] [--verbose] [--all | --images | --containers | --rootfs rootfs path to scan| IMAGE or CONTAINER names ...]
atomic scan will scan the a container or image looking for known Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures(CVEs) by default. It can also scan paths on the host filesystem as well using the --rootfs option.
The architecture for atomic scan is very plug-in friendly. You can define additional scanners to use via the plug-in interface. To list the available scanners setup on your system, you can use --list. To use a different scanner, you simple pass its name with the --scanner switch. You can also select a different scan type using the --scan_type switch.
-h --help Print usage statement
--verbose Show more verbose output. Specifically the stdout from the image scanner itself.
--list Show all scanners configured for atomic and their scan types.
--scanner Select as scanner other than the default.
--scan_type Select a scan_type other than the default.
--scanner_args Provide additional arguments for the scanner, for example specify a compliance profile.
--all Instead of providing image or container names, scan all images (excluding intermediate image layers) and containers
Scan all images (excluding intermediate layers). Similar to the results of
Scan all containers. Similar to the results of
docker ps -a
--rootfs Rootfs path to scan. Can provide --rootfs multiple times. Note: SELinux separation will be disabled for --rootfs scans, but all other container separation will still be in place.
--remediate Allows the scanner to run a remediation script when scanning is complete. The remediation script is provided by the scanner itself.
Note: not all scanners provide remediation scripts.
List all the scanners atomic knows about and display their default scan types.
atomic scan --list
Scan an image named 'foo1'.
atomic scan foo1
Scan and remediate an image named 'foo1'.
atomic scan --remediate foo1
Scan images named 'foo1' and 'foo2' and produce a detailed report.
atomic scan foo1 foo2
Scan all containers.
atomic scan --containers
Scan all containers and images and create a detailed report.
atomic scan --all
Scan a rootfs mounted at /tmp/chroot
atomic scan --rootfs /tmp/chroot
Scan an image called 'foo1' with a scanner called 'custom_scanner' and its default scan_type
atomic scan --scanner custom_scanner foo1
Scan an image called 'foo1' with a scanner called 'custom_scanner' and a scan type of 'list_rpms'
atomic scan --scanner custom_scanner --scan_type list_rpms foo1
