Creating a custom atomic scan plug-in

Brent Baude

In my previous article where I introduced atomic scan, I largely talked about using atomic to scan your containers and images for CVE Vulnerabilities. I also discussed how atomic scan had been architected to a plug-in approached so that you can implement your own scanners. The plug-ins do not have to focus on vulnerabilities, it could be as simple a scanner that collects information about containers and images. In this blog, I will walk through how you can create your...

Even Red Hat has been building a scanning tool based on the tried and true OpenSCAP project, but there were several problems we saw time and again. The problems with existing container scanning tools included...

Brent Baude

This blog is a continuation of "Creating custom Atomic trees, images, and installers - Part 1." In part one, we learned how to compose our own atomic trees and consume them in a guest. In part two, we will learn how to create our own disk images and installer media. Creating custom disk images As mentioned in the previous blog, the subcommand imagefactory can be used to create disk images. As of this writing, the imagefactory subcommand can output the...

Creating custom Atomic trees, images, and installers - Part 1

Brent Baude

There are a number of different ways to accomplish using custom images not withstanding using docker and containers. The Atomic tool called 'rpm-ostree-toolbox' is emerging as the best tool for customizing Atomic. The 'rpm-ostree-toolbox' main command is actually a wrapper (much like virsh) for three subcommands: treecompose, imagefactory, and installer. With these three...
