Supply Chain Levels for Software Artifacts (SLSA) is a security framework designed to uphold the integrity of software artifacts across the software supply chain, while safeguarding against potential security secrets breaches. It establishes a model for security capabilities and compliance requirements, offering a robust defense against cyber threats and supply chain vulnerabilities.
Unlike traditional security guidelines, SLSA emphasizes automatically generating verifiable metadata instead of providing a checklist of best practices. This metadata is pivotal for making real-world policy decisions and implementing security measures.
SLSA is indispensable because all software, regardless of its origin, can potentially contain vulnerabilities and introduce risks to the supply chain. As software systems grow in complexity, it becomes imperative to implement controls and best practices to ensure the integrity of each artifact. SLSA offers clear and recognizable compliance requirements and protective measures, establishing itself as an industry standard for developers and enterprises.
SLSA can be applied across various scenarios to safeguard organizations, consumers, and vendors:
SLSA comprises four levels that contribute to supply chain security. Each compliance level represents a step towards achieving a higher security posture:
Build process documentation
Protection against tampering
Extra protection against specific threats
Attaining the highest trust and confidence levels
To initiate the SLSA framework, organizations can follow these steps to achieve SLSA 1 and establish a foundation of trust in their systems:
