Notary is Docker's platform to provide trusted delivery of content by signing images that are published. A content publisher can then provide the corresponding signing keys that allow users to verify that content when it is consumed. Artifactory fully supports working with Docker Notary to ensure that Docker images uploaded to Artifactory can be signed, and then verified when downloaded for consumption. When the Docker client is configured to work with Docker Notary, after pushing an image to Artifactory, the client notifies the Notary to sign the image before assigning it a tag.
Artifactory supports hosting signed images without the need for any additional configuration.
