S3E3: Dan Lorenc - Software Supply Chain, Sigstore and OSS

Chris: We're undoubtedly seeing a growing discussion around Software Supply Chain, with several notable events and also now evolving guidance/legislation such as the Cyber EO, NIST guidance etc. Any thoughts on why this is just now becoming such a focused concern?

Nikki: When a lot of people discuss software supply chain security, it can quickly turn into a discussion about SBOM or Log4j and SolarWinds. I think about software supply chain security as being part of a really good threat detection and response program - what are your thoughts on that?

Nikki: I also wanted to address, expanding on the topic of threat detection and moving into threat modeling - do you think that with the attack surface expanding through the software supply chain that there are threat modeling techniques that can be used to understand and account for that growing attack surface?

Chris: You've been pretty involved in efforts around software supply chain and DevSecOps, most notably sigstore - can you tell us what that is and why it is important or useful?

 Nikki: In the last couple of years ' technical debt' has become a bigger concern for organizations, but this includes software supply chain, dependencies, EOL or outdated software, etc. How do you think organizations can account for their software inventory better and more efficiently?

Chris: As we look to the future of Software Supply Chain, with efforts such as SBOM, VEX, Sigstore, SLSA and more, where do you think we're headed? What does the state of software supply chain look like in say 3 years?
