Docker Official Images

Table of contents

The Docker Official Images are a curated set of Docker repositories hosted on Docker Hub.


Use of Docker Official Images is subject to Docker's Terms of Service.

These images provide essential base repositories that serve as the starting point for the majority of users.

These include operating systems such as Ubuntu and Alpine, programming language runtimes such as Python and Node, and other essential tools such as memcached and MySQL.

The images are some of the most secure images on Docker Hub. This is particularly important as Docker Official Images are some of the most popular on Docker Hub. Typically, Docker Official images have few or no packages containing CVEs.

The images exemplify Dockerfile best practices and provide clear documentation to serve as a reference for other Dockerfile authors.

Images that are part of this program have a special badge on Docker Hub making it easier for you to identify projects that are part of Docker Official Images.
