OpenSSF SLSA Workshop

Monday, April 15

Time: 9:00am – 12:30pm
Location: Seattle Convention Center | Summit
Registration Cost: $0

SLSA Dancing Goose Logo

In this hands-on workshop, we will explain how organizations can leverage the Supply-chain Levels for Software Artifacts (SLSA) framework to harden the SDLC of code deployed in production.

To build a good understanding of how SLSA can be deployed at scale, we will take participants through a series of hands-on coding activities to secure a container developed on GitHub and deployment on Kubernetes. Our example will enforce two important properties: First, that all released images are integrity-protected against unauthorized parties. Second, that all deployed images are restricted to a set of cloud privileges, the same way we restrict privileges for OS processes.

We will then present how SLSA can be applied to harden AI models’ development and inference, the same way we do for traditional software like containers. We will take users through hands-on activities and demos to apply SLSA to AI models.

Benefit to ecosystem
While there’s been a lot of discussion about the importance of securing your supply chain, it can be difficult and overwhelming to understand how to leverage the SLSA framework end-to-end for your own deployments. The aim of this talk is to make this challenge less intimidating and clearly demonstrate via demos how to secure, end-to-end, a container deployment. We’ve chosen to build this workshop using popular frameworks and tooling (GitHub, Kubernetes, Kyverno), but the contributions are applicable to other systems.

By the end of this session, you will understand how to deploy SLSA in practice for your deployment. You will also have access to source code to better understand the solution.

CHAOSS is a Linux Foundation project focused on creating metrics, metrics models, and software to better understand open source community health on a global scale. CHAOSS is an acronym for Community Health Analytics in Open Source Software. Open source software is critically important for both individuals and organizations. This importance raises questions about how we understand the health of the open-source projects we rely on. Unhealthy projects can have negative impacts on the community involved in the project as well as organizations that rely on such projects.

At CHAOSScon, you will learn about open source project health metrics and tools used by open source projects, communities, engineering teams, OSPOs, Universities, and scientific / research software to track and analyze their open source work. This mini-conference will provide a venue for discussing open source project health, CHAOSS updates, use cases, and hands-on activities for developers, community managers, project managers, and anyone interested in measuring open source project health. We will also share insights about the activities happening across the CHAOSS project.
