Docker Verified Publisher Program
Reach developers and grow your brand with Docker
If you’re publicly distributing your software via Docker Hub, the Docker Verified Publisher program is for you. Docker Hub is the world’s largest container registry, with more than 15 million active developers and 13 billion image pulls per month. As a Docker Verified Publisher, you will differentiate yourself from the rest while you communicate trust and security to your customers. You’ll benefit from improved awareness, discoverability, data insights, and co-marketing opportunities.
