I have a requirement to assure that the container image we build runs in UTC only. I'd like to avoid starting it up just to check the link on /etc/localtime. I thought maybe a tool like
dive that evaluates the contents of the image would do the trick. Clearly dive has that info, but it is outside it's scope to provide it. I also looked at syft and grype, but it seems they focus on packages, not files.
All those tools are looking at the file system so it seems like this isn't very far from reality. Is there another tool that would list out specific files and corresponding file system links?
I'm also open to alternative methods of checking the timezone in a container image that doesn't involved needing to create an instance of the image.
