Starboard CLI is a single executable binary which can be used to find risks, such as vulnerabilities or insecure pod descriptors, in Kubernetes workloads. By default, the risk assessment reports are stored as instances of Custom Resource Definitions.


Even though manual scanning through the command-line is useful, the fact that it's not automated makes it less suitable with a large number of Kubernetes resources. Therefore, the Starboard Operator provides a better option for these scenarios, constantly monitoring built-in Kubernetes resources, such as Deployments and Nodes, and running appropriate scanners.

To learn more about the available Starboard CLI commands, run starboard help or type a command followed by the --help flag:

starboard scan kubehunterreports --help
