In partnership with Chainguard, the Rust Foundation, and the Open Source Security Foundation, we’re proud to release SLSA++ A Survey of Software Supply Chain Security Practices and Beliefs.

The survey, conducted in the summer and fall of 2022, includes data from nearly 170 respondents at a wide range of organizations, large and small, some security-focused in their role and others not. 

The questions were primarily derived from the security requirements associated with the Supply-chain Levels for Software Artifacts (SLSA) supply chain integrity framework version 0.1.

All respondents answered a series of questions for ten different software supply chain security practices. Three key findings stand out:

  • Some software supply chain security practices are already widely adopted.
  • Most practices are considered helpful though there is surprisingly little variation in the perceived level of helpfulness.
  • Some SLSA practices are considered substantially more difficult than others.
