Harbor is an open-source cloud-native registry that stores, signs, and scans container images for vulnerabilities. It provides users with features for image management, security, and compliance. With Harbor, users can securely store and distribute their images while maintaining control over access and usage. The platform is highly customizable and can be integrated with various cloud platforms, container orchestrators, and CI/CD pipelines. In this way, Harbor offers a comprehensive solution for managing container images in a secure and efficient manner.
Harbor can be used to secure, manage, and distribute container images across the organization. It can be integrated into the CI/CD pipeline to ensure that only trusted images are deployed in production. Harbor's image scanning capabilities can detect vulnerabilities in the images and provide remediation advice. It can also be used for compliance and auditing purposes, with its logging and auditing features.
To use Harbor, you first need to nstall and configure it, either on-premise or in the cloud. You can then create users and projects, and set up role-based access control to manage permissions. You can configure image replication and synchronization policies to ensure that images are available across multiple regions or data centers. You can also set up webhooks and notifications to trigger events based on image updates, and configure image deletion and garbage collection policies to manage storage usage.
