Re: SPDXID #spdx

Gary O'Neall
 

Hi Sandeep – Moving the conversation over to the SPDX-tech mailing list.

 

Unfortunately, adding in a CPE ID or pURL would include characters disallowed in the SPDX ID.

 

Fortunately, there is a way to express the pURL and CPE ID in the SPDX Package using the ExternalRef property.  If you add these properties, tools such as the SPDX to OSV will pick up the references and use them to uniquely identify the packages.

 

Here’s an example in JSON format for a CPE 2.3 ID:

 

  "packages" : [ {

                   "SPDXID" : "SPDXRef-Package",

                   "externalRefs" : [ {

                     "referenceCategory" : "SECURITY",

                     "referenceLocator" : "cpe:2.3:a:pivotal_software:spring_framework:4.1.0:*:*:*:*:*:*:*",

                     "referenceType" : "cpe23Type"

                   },  …

 

See the ExternalRef subsection of the spec and the External Repository Identifiers Annex for more details.

 

Regards,
Gary

Hi , 
I have query regarding SPDXID , Can this be expressed along with CPE or pURL something like 

"SPDXRef-[cpe id]"   or  "SPDXRef-[pURL]"

Any further guidance on this will help.

This is how Microsoft has approached this:

The one thing I’d add is that additional identifiers would be stored in External References.

NTIA Framing document has the mapping you seek: see page 13

However the “EO 14028 NTIA min element list is a little different from the framing document list (see attached)

Hi , 
Is there any document reference which can be used to see mapping between SPDX tags and  NTIA Minimum elements ?  
Some element names can be easily confused , something like "Author of SBOM Data" in NTIA Minimum elements and "Creator" tag in SPDX are those same ?

Re: SPDX and NTIA SBOM Minimum elements #spdx

You’re welcome.

 

You will most likely need SPDX V2.3 if you have any “FILE” components that need to specify version info. The new PackagePurpose field supports the version info for “FILE” artifacts.

Hi Sandeep,

 

     There is a pull request expected shortly from the Usage profile team, to add this specific field to 2.3.

When it comes in,  please feel free to review and make sure it's going to suffice for your needs.

 

For now, with 2.2 documents,  suggest you use the Package Comment field (https://spdx.github.io/spdx-spec/package-information/#720-package-comment-field) and standardize on a tag (like EndOfSupport: ) and the date. 

 

Will that work for now?

~24 hours left to propose SPDX talks to All Things Open!

VM (Vicky) Brasseur
 

All Things Open (ATO) is one of the largest open source conferences in the world now. In 2022 it’ll be in-person only, in its normal location of the Raleigh Convention Center in Raleigh, North Carolina, USA.

 

ATO 2022 happens October 30-November 2 (yes, over Halloween, ugh). This is either soon after or contemporaneous with the release of 3.0.

 

Considering the size of the potential audience (thousands) and the diversity of the event (both in attendees and in topic tracks), it would be great if folks could propose some SPDX-related talks. For instance:

 

  • Steve could propose the talk he’s doing for OSPOcon in June
  • An intro talk about SPDX would be good for a large percent of the audience
  • A survey of tools for using and/or creating SPDX might be fun
  • A general talk about supply chain stuff & how SPDX can help would be timely
  • Why distros (Fedora, Yocto) are supporting SPDX and how you can help your fave distro do the same

 

The ATO CFP form allows for submitting 15 minute keynote slots this year! That would be a great place for Kate, Jilayne, or someone to talk about the impact of supply chain stuff and where SPDX 3.0 fits in!

 

Anyway, time’s running short. The CFP closes EOD tomorrow!

The OpenChain Industry Survey 2022 - SPDX Included

 

The OpenChain Industry Survey 2022 covers a big topic: the global status of corporate engagement and management of open source. Please help by completing the survey from your perspective before May 1st.

English:
https://forms.gle/9Jf9h1J6AwzFpMz89

Simplified Chinese:
https://wj.qq.com/s2/9935077/5841/

Japanese:
https://forms.gle/A2qdawgY9h7CWr3q8

(Thank you China and Japan work groups! :) )

We are considering open source from a “strategy” perspective rather than a “development” perspective. Our goal is to help inform project, product and supply chain decisions in the year ahead. This goes far beyond compliance, OSPO and any other single topic. However, we are explicitly unpacking industry engagement with SPDX.

This survey is licensed under CC-0 so feel free to take it as the basis for your own surveys in the future.


Special Presentation and SPDX Thurs General Meeting Reminder

Phil Odence
 

NOTE: I am a little behind and have not posted the minutes from the March meeting in GH. In advance of that, I have included that minutes in roughg form at the bottom of this email.

 

PRESENTATION: Please join us for this presentation to kick off the meeting. Yocto have been very supportive of SPDX and active in incorporating the technology.

 

SPDX in the Yocto Project – Joshua Watt

Abstract:

As Software Bills of Material (SBoMs) become more important in the software industry, the generation of high quality SBoMs from the beginning of the Software Supply Chain has also become more important. The Yocto Project is designed to build up software images from source, and such is a prime candidate to generate these SBoMs at the point where software packages are compiled and assembled into customer images. Joshua will talk about how the Yocto Project is able to do this, and some of the interesting quirks encountered when implementing this feature.

 

Joshua Watt is a Software Engineer for Garmin, where he has been working for the past 13 years. He has been a developer with OpenEmebedded and the Yocto Project for the past 7 years, and is a member of the OpenEmbedded Technical Steering Committee.

## How RKVST Uses SPDX for Software Transparency by Jon Geater, CTO Jitsuin

### Jitsuin, RVST, Digital Twin Consortium

### The Problem

#### Cyber physical systems- Data is the new oil. Big Opportunity...but requires trusting data

#### Trust can be difficult because everyone is in a supply chain, crossing org boundaries

### Solution approach: Shared asset history w/evidence

#### Including BOM

##### Software and hardware combination (depending on industy)

##### SBOM- super crutial first step

#### Common understanding takes out human time-consuming steps

#### Anyone in the chain should be able to make their own risk assessment

##### Trust is not the same as security

##### Things change/are dynamic...and with software that's frequent

##### So systems need to be able to handle quickly, in real time

### Conclusions

#### What's needed is resilient operation of dynamic systems

#### Important first step is what's in the box

#### ...then vulernablities and what do to about them

#### interoperatiblity of standard formats

### Q&A

 

 

 

## Tech Team Report - Gary/Kate/Thomas

Just wanted to send a reminder from Phil's original email announcing the SPDX project membership process -- see his email below.

 

As mentioned previously, companies / organizations that become a member of SPDX prior to April 1 (before this coming Friday) will be able to nominate an individual from their organization for consideration for the initial Member Representative seats on the SPDX Steering Committee. On or shortly after April 1, we will send out details about the nomination process to all member companies as of that date, so that nominations can be submitted and the 1 or 2 Member Representatives chosen by the Steering Committee before their annual term begins on May 1.

 

If you'd like for your company to nominate someone for consideration for the initial Member Representatives, please make sure that your company signs up as a member of SPDX on or before this Thursday, March 31. Please note that just being listed as an "SPDX Supporter" on https://spdx.dev is not itself the same as becoming a member of the project; you'll need to sign up as a member using the process Phil described below.

 

(Of course, membership will still be open after that date, and future members could participate in nominations for future years' Member Representatives.)

 

Best,

Steve

Dear SPDX community,

 

With the adoption of the new project governance model for SPDX in September, one new aspect of the updated structure is the introduction of the ability for companies and other organizations to become official members of the project.

 

We have been working with the Linux Foundation for them to configure their membership enrollment platform for SPDX. Now that this has been completed, we're happy to announce that organizations can begin signing up as members of SPDX.

 

As a reminder, organizational membership in SPDX is not required in order for anyone to contribute to or participate in the technical development of SPDX. All of SPDX's code and specification development is open to anyone to participate in, whether or not their organization is a formal SPDX member -- same as always.

 

Membership Benefits

 

Membership in SPDX enables an organization to have their logo displayed on the project website and materials to indicate their status as a "member" of the project, and to identify them as such.

 

Additionally, with the governance change, the SPDX Steering Committee will be expanded to include up to two individuals selected as Member Representatives (see Section 2 of the Governance document). Each organization that is a member of SPDX may nominate one person from their organization as a candidate for selection

 

Organizations that become members of SPDX within the first four months following December 1, 2021, may make a nomination for the initial selection of Member Representatives during that four-month time period. After April 1, 2022, the Steering Committee will choose the Member Representatives from among the nominees. We will send updated details about this to the then-current members as the deadline approaches. The terms for all Steering Committee members, as specified in Section 2 of the Governance document, will begin on May 1, 2022.

 

Signing up

 

Project membership in SPDX itself is available at no charge; however, an organization must be a member of The Linux Foundation (which may include fees for your organization) in order to become a member.

 

In order to become a member, go to https://enrollment.lfx.linuxfoundation.org/?project=spdx to begin the signup process. If your organization is not already an LF member, the LF membership agreement sign-up and billing will be included as part of the process.

 

(Please note that the membership enrollment system may still ask for billing information, even if your organization is already an LF member and you are only signing up for SPDX membership.)

 

Please let us know if you or your organization have any questions about becoming a member of SPDX.

 

SPDX Steering Committee

Hi Brian,

Since the cutoff date is EOD day, sometime in the next few days / next week we'll send an email with nomination instructions to the primary contacts from each of the members who have signed up by then. We may need a bit of time to work with the LF to collect the contact details from the signups, but we'll circulate the next steps to the members shortly thereafter.

Best,
Steve
