NAME
       docker-login - Log in to a Docker registry

SYNOPSIS
       docker login [OPTIONS] [SERVER]

DESCRIPTION
       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
            <https://docs.docker.com/engine/security/security/#/docker-daemon-
            attack-surface> for details.

       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.

EXAMPLES
Login to a registry on your localhost
              # docker login localhost:8080
