What’s Docker Trusted Open Source Content?

Open source content you know is safe to use

Docker Trusted Open Source Content are high-quality, maintained images of open source platforms, applications, and libraries available on Docker Hub. Made possible by the Docker Official Images and Docker Sponsored Open Source (DSOS) programs, these images provide developers with a trusted version of open source projects. By providing image provenance verification, Trusted Open Source Content limits exposure to malicious content in early development stages.
