What is an SBOM and why should I care?

In this webinar, Toradex partner, Doulos, will explain (in as few words as possible) what a Software Bill Of Materials (SBOM) is and why we need to know about them in embedded systems development.

We will also take a look at what the industry leaders in the Embedded Linux market are doing regarding SBOMs and Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVEs) reports, and how they are helping companies to comply with upcoming cyber-security regulations. For this, we will also review Toradex's work on the subject, and how they are implementing traceability and integrity guarantees on their Torizon OS.

You will learn about:
  • The main uses cases for an SBOM and the different data formats which can be used
  • How SBOM information can be generated automatically with build systems and tools like the Yocto Project
  • Some of the open-source tools which can be used to process, track and consume SBOM data
