Scanning Docker images with Debricked
Hi all, I have been using Debricked for my pet projects for a while now and have been liking it a lot. However, I also have a few custom Docker images which I wanted to scan using Debricked. While there doesn’t seem to any official Docker image support (yet?), I figured that I could try to generate a CycloneDX report using Docker’s SBOM plugin (https://github.com/docker/sbom-cli-plugin) and then import that. Said and done, I ran the plugin with flags --format cyclonedx-json --output imagename.sbom.json, the CLI automatically picked up the CycloneDX reports and after a few seconds I got both license and vulnerabilities back! TLDR: To scan Docker images with Debricked, you need to do the following: Install and run the Docker SBOM CLI plugin, https://github.com/docker/sbom-cli-plugin, in order to generate a CycloneDX report. Make sure to change the format to CycloneDX, e.g.:docker sbom username/imagename:latest --format cyclonedx-json --output imagename.sbom.json Run Debricked CLI, https:

One of the thing that personally fascinates me with open source is its ability to connect people to solve for some societal challenges and make scientific breakthroughs that can make our lives better. This week I enjoyed reading about how “Open source is fuelling the future of nuclear physics”. Interesting piece about making balanced choices on how much is too open as in this case it can be a double-edge sword. Is there anything you enjoyed reading/seeing/listening this week?

Do not break on found CVE lacking remedy
We are using Debricked as a stage in our Azure Devops Pipeline. We have been forced to actually disable it’s capacity to fail the pipeline as it does that too much. What we really want is for it to fail if and only if A CVE is found of certain level AND there do exist a remedy for it that we can fix. Stopping on CVE that has no fix makes no sense, imho.
