    Have a look at skopeo if you want to inspect images without downloading them. You could compare the digest of your currently running image with the one skopeo gives you.

    The only tool which I will mention here that can do these tasks is Skopeo. It's made by Red Hat and it's an accompanying tool for Buildah, Podman and CRI-O. Apart from the basic skopeo inspect which we all know from Docker, Skopeo is also able to copy images using skopeo copy which allows you to mirror images between remote registries without first pulling them to local registry. This feature can also act as pull/push if you use local registry.
