Sigstore & Ferris: Rust in Supply Chain Security

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Sigstore is gaining momentum as a new standard for signing, verifying and protecting software. It aims to improve supply chain technology for anyone using open source projects: it is created for open source maintainers, by open source maintainers.

Rust is a systems programming language known for its speed and built-in emphasis on security. While many of the tools in the Sigstore ecosystem are written in Go, some portions of these tools are now being ported to Rust, which will allow them to be available for more diverse use cases and environments. In addition to giving an overview of Sigstore, this session will cover uses of Rust in Sigstore and how these compare with their Go counterparts.

Together these two security-focused efforts can complement each other and make security in open source more usable and accessible. Learn how Sigstore can make software signing and key management easier!
