DevSecCon - SBOM - The inescapable way of tracking dependencies


Since the past few months, there have been numerous cyber-attacks across the globe & SBOM is the key buzzword. SBOM refers to the Software Bill Of Materials. Lack of visibility on software components or packaging & delayed patching are the primary reasons for the supply chain attacks. Even Google released SLSA (Supply-chain Levels for Software Artifacts) framework that can be adopted in multiple stages like source, build, provenance & common uses. Numerous other tools help us to generate SBOM in different phases of SDLC. Through this lightning talk, I aim to increase awareness of SBOM, why it’s mandatory, the different formats of SBOM, and how to generate, manage and monitor SBOMs for other use cases.
