SLSA masterclasses

Empower DevOps to do security




In today’s digital landscape, software development has become increasingly complex, with multiple layers and dependencies involved in creating and delivering software artifacts. Understanding and effectively managing the supply chain levels for software artifacts has become crucial for organizations to ensure efficient and secure software development practices.

This masterclass series aims to provide participants with comprehensive knowledge and practical insights into the supply chain levels pertaining to software artifacts.
From a high level overview of SLSA framework and requirements to setting up various attestation formats in SLSA and implementing them, getting to SLSA-1, 2, 3 and 4, and meeting “Source” requirements across all levels, each topic will be explored in detail, emphasizing their role in the software development lifecycle. Additionally, the series will delve into key considerations such as software supply chain security threats addressed by SLSA, regulatory compliance made easier, and what to expect in future SLSA upgrades.

Through a combination of expert-led sessions, case studies, and hands-on exercises, participants will gain a deeper understanding of supply chain management practices specific to software artifacts. By the end of the series, participants will be equipped with the necessary skills to optimize software artifact supply chains, enhance productivity, ensure security, and maintain compliance in their software development processes.
