Trivy is a versatile security scanner that can find vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, secrets, SBOM in different targets like containers, code repositories and Kubernetes cluster.

Zora uses Trivy as a plugin exclusively to scan vulnerabilities in a Kubernetes cluster.

Large vulnerability reports

Vulnerability reports can be large. If you encounter issues with etcd request payload limit, you can ignore unfixed vulnerabilities from reports by providing the following flag to helm upgrade --install command:

--set 'scan.plugins.trivy.ignoreUnfixed=true'

To identify this issue, check the logs of worker container in trivy pod. The ClusterScan will have a Failed status. You will see a log entry similar to the following example:

2023-09-26T14:18:02Z    ERROR   worker  failed to run worker    {"error": "failed to create VulnerabilityReport \"kind-kind-usdockerpkgdevgooglesamplescontainersgkegbfrontendsha256dc8de8e0d569d2f828b187528c9317bd6b605c273ac5a282aebe471f630420fc-rzntw\": etcdserver: request is too large"}
