skopeo-standalone-verify - Man Page

Verify an image signature.


skopeo standalone-verify manifest docker-reference key-fingerprint signature


Verify a signature using local files; the digest will be printed on success. This is primarily a debugging tool, useful for special cases, and usually should not be a part of your normal operational workflow. Additionally, consider configuring a signature verification policy file, as per containers-policy.json(5).

manifest Path to a file containing the image manifest

docker-reference A docker reference expected to identify the image in the signature

key-fingerprint Expected identity of the signing key

signature Path to signature file

Note: If you do use this, make sure that the image can not be changed at the source location between the times of its verification and use.
