Hello Everyone, Welcome to the world of Security Management by using security tools like Snyk which can be implemented in DevSecOps. In the world of the vast growth of technology, we should have a security tool that can check the vulnerabilities in our code to have a clean and clear code that makes it more secure so that no attacks can be made. Also it helps to fix vulnerability.

Steps to use Snyk in Docker

Here, We can use Snyk in Docker in two ways: terminal or directly from Dashboard.

First way: Using Snyk inside a VM and scan Docker images

  • Here we have set up the VM with Snyk pre-installed and configured with Docker.

  • Here are the docker images inside the VM :

  • So, we need to scan this docker image using the command snyk test -docker <image name:tag name>

Second way: Using Snyk Dashboard to scan Docker images

  • Here is the Snyk dashboard which consists of all the repository which has vulnerabilities :

  • We need to configure and add a Docker Hub repository through which we were able to upload our public and private repositories and check vulnerabilities.

  • After adding the Docker Hub, we are now able to view all the images inside the repository :

  • After adding the particular image and its tag we can directly check it from the dashboard its vulnerability :


Here, we have learnt about the Snyk – A vulnerability tool that helps to overcome the challenge of security and fends the vulnerability easily and in a very simple way so that any developer and user can use the tool and handle the security concern for the application.
