Ability to pull Docker container private Docker repository on Docker Hub
Currently, it is not possible to authenticate on https://hub.docker.com/ to use the container located in private repository.
The w/a is to make the image public, download it and make it private again.
Thank you for your input! We will consider this functionality in upcoming releases if it will be popular.
Everyone, please continue voting for this feature if you consider it important.

+1 For private Gitlab container registry
Would like to suggest support for gitlab as a good start, it supports container registries and key management.
From a remote server you can login to gitlab as you would do docker hub and pull an image. Authentication is via username/password (same method as it would be for private docker hub images) then you can pull a private.
Ultimately - you should be able to specify the repository/image name, username, password and pull direct from private on-to your server. Gitlab also supports readonly one time tokens I believe.
