To push images you have to use the Docker engine. Right the Docker 
engine authenticates only with a username and password.

As stated above this would require quite some changes both into the 
Docker engine and later into portus.

Right now you have to create a user on Portus and then use its 
credentials on the CI runner.

We have been thinking about other possible solutions. Would you like the 
possibility to create unique random passwords to give to specif 
applications? I'm thinking about something like Google does with 
"application passwords".
