Generate SPDX SBOM with open-source tools
You can use several different open-source tools to generate your SBOM in SPDX format.
- spdx-sbom-generator tool enables generation of SPDX SBOMs with current package managers. It automatically determines which package managers or build systems are actually being used by your software dependency components.
- Works with Linux, Mac, and Windows.
- Comes with a Dockerfile for you to maintain your own image.
- has CLI (command-line interface) to generate SBOMs info, including dependency components, licenses, copyrights, and security references of your software supply chain using SPDX v2.2 spec and aligning with NTIA known minimum elements.
If you're using Yocto on Linux to generate your SBOM file, you can take all of the files that are generated, zip them up using a WinZip or gzip tool, then upload that zipped file to Helm. Refer to their info on creating an SBOM for more information.
- bom is a utility to create, view, and transform your Software Bills of Materials (SBOMs). It can generate SPDX packages from directories, container images, single files, and other sources. It also has a built-in license classifier that recognizes over 400 licenses in the SPDX catalog.
- Supports Golang dependency analysis and full
.gitignoresupport when scanning git repositories.
- Microsoft's SBOM generation tool (microsoft.sbom.tool) apparently can detect NPM, NuGet, PyPI, CocoaPods, Maven, Golang, Rust Crates, RubyGems, Linux packages within containers, Gradle, Ivy, GitHub public repos, and more. It uses Component Detection to generate your SBOM.
