Working with Docker Content Trust

Software signing is an important aspect of security. It is imperative to verify any software you run on your system has not been tampered with, and Docker images are no exception. Docker Content Trust enables you to sign and verify images before downloading or running them on your system. In this lab, you will have the opportunity to work with Docker Content Trust (DCT) by signing a previously unsigned image and running it on a system that has DCT enabled.
