Announcing Support for CSAF Additional Profiles

Chainloop adds support to all CSAF (Common Security Advisory Framework) profiles, including VEX, Security Advisory, Informational Advisory, and Security Incident Response.

What’s CSAF?

As can be read at the CSAF official site and specification: “The Common Security Advisory Framework (CSAF) is the definitive reference for the language which supports creation, update, and interoperable exchange of security advisories as structured information on products, vulnerabilities and the status of impact and remediation among interested parties.”.

What's New?

Chainloop now supports CSAF 2, which includes not only the CSAF VEX profile but also three new profiles: Security Advisory, Informational Advisory, Security Incident Response.

With these updates, Chainloop contracts can reference and validate the newly introduced material types. There is no need to specify the exact version of the CSAF document denoted by csaf_version. Chainloop can dynamically determine the appropriate schema for the validation. Simply set the expected CSAF Profile, and Chainloop will take care of the rest.

schemaVersion: v1
    name: informational-advisory

    name: security-advisory

    name: security-incident-response
