Use case

Image compliance

Create one security and compliance workflow for images that are provisioned across multiple clouds.


Outdated images introduce security and compliance risks

Golden images must be secure, compliant, and up to date. Manual configuration and patching processes lead to inconsistent outcomes and increased risk of security breaches due to unsecured or out-of-date base images.


Reduce the risk of breach due to out-of-date or unsecured operating systems

Codify security hardening and compliance baselines to ensure golden images are consistent. Security teams can automate the validation of image configurations and resulting builds before approval. Using channels in the HCP Packer artifact registry, the approved version of every image is discoverable by downstream provisioning processes, and vulnerable images can be revoked to prevent further use.
