docker-login - Log in to a Docker registry
docker login [OPTIONS] [SERVER]
Log in to a Docker Registry located on the specified SERVER. You can
specify a URL or a hostname for the SERVER value. If you do not specify
a SERVER, the command uses Docker's public registry located at
https://registry-1.docker.io/ by default. To get a username/password
for Docker's public registry, create an account on Docker Hub.
docker login requires user to use sudo or be root, except when:
1. connecting to a remote daemon, such as a docker-machine
provisioned docker engine.
2. user is added to the docker group. This will impact the security
of your system; the docker group is root equivalent. See Docker
Daemon Attack Surface

You can log into any public or private repository for which you have
credentials. When you log in, the command stores encoded credentials
in $HOME/.docker/config.json on Linux or
%USERPROFILE%/.docker/config.json on Windows.
