[1]: Docker defines a sha256 of the image id; corresponds to the Image field from the Docker container inspect API endpoint. K8s defines a link to the container registry repository with digest "imageID": " /namespace/service/dockerfile@sha256:bdeabd40c3a8a492eaf9e8e44d0ebbb84bac7ee25ac0cf8a7159d25f62555625". OCI defines a digest of manifest.

[2]: If using embedded credentials or sensitive data, it is recommended to remove them to prevent potential leakage.
