Quay, also known as Quay.io, is a container registry service that allows users to store, manage, and distribute container images. It is similar to other container registries like Docker Hub or Google Container Registry, but Quay offers some additional features and flexibility.

Usage of Quay in SSD

  • SSD gets notified for every build run in a pipeline. To identify the image for every build, it connects to the Quay repo and pulls the newly built image.

  • Once the image is pulled, it runs security scans on it. The scanned results are available in the Vulnerability Management page, and Artifact section of the DBOM page.

  • SSD also collects metadata such as Artifact SHA to perform artifact integrity checks and ensure the security in the supply chain. This information gets populated in the DBOM page for audit purposes.
