It’s time to improve your open source supply chain security

The open source supply chain spans the “import-build-consume” process, but for most organizations this workflow offers bad actors far too many potential points of compromise.

The ActiveState Platform eliminates many potential points of supply chain attacks by providing a consistent, end-to-end ecosystem that offers:
  • Vetted Source Code – indemnified packages are checked ensure they are well maintained and suitably licensed for commercial use
  • Scripted Builds – no manual intervention
  • Secure Build Service – run in Amazon Web Services (AWS)
  • Ephemeral, Isolated, Hermetic Environments – secure all build steps
  • Verifiable Reproducibility – provenance can be established for each built artifact and cannot be falsified
  • Signed Packages (coming soon) – package checksums are verified at runtime

Implementing the ActiveState Platform can greatly increase the security and integrity of your open source supply chain for Python, Perl and Tcl.

Open Source Security

The ActiveState Platform also offers a number of additional features that can help organizations improve open source security in general, including:

  • Bill of Materials – a comprehensive list of ingredients required to build your application, including all dependencies and configurations.
  • Vulnerability Remediation – be aware of when your development environment is vulnerable, and then update and automatically rebuild your environment with secure Python, Perl or Tcl components in minutes.
  • Universal Tooling – implementing secure “import-build-consume” tooling for one language is difficult, but quickly becomes intractable if you use more than 2 or 3 languages. The ActiveState Platform provides universal package management tooling for all languages, starting with Python, Perl and Tcl.
