Chainguard Images

Reduce attack surfaces and minimize dependencies with our suite of distroless images

Build secure by default

Chainguard Images are security-first container base images that are secure by default, signed by Sigstore, and include SBOMs, thanks to Wolfi—our Linux (un)distro built for the software supply chain.

Continuously updated

Out-of-date software is a major factor in security breaches. Our images are continuously updated with new versions and fixes.

Guaranteed SLAs

Our images come with SLAs that guarantee that we will provide patches or mitigations for vulnerabilities within an agreed time frame.


All our images are signed and include Software Bills of Material (SBOMs) that are generated at build time.

Chainguard vs. others

Chainguard Images are minimal, comprised of only the things required to build or run your application;
This results in fewer CVEs over time compared to other base images*.
