As software supply chain attacks emerge as a point of concern in the wake of SolarWinds and Codecov security incidents, Google is proposing a solution to ensure the integrity of software packages and prevent unauthorized modifications. Called "Supply chain Levels for Software Artifacts", the end-to-end framework aims to secure the software development and deployment pipeline - i.e., the source build publish workflow - and mitigate threats that arise out of tampering with the source code, the build platform, and the artifact repository at every link in the chain.
The U.S. tech giant this week unveiled SLSA, a new end-to-end framework the company hopes will drive the enforcement of standards and guidelines to ensuring the integrity of software artifacts throughout the software supply chain. "The goal of SLSA is to improve the state of the industry, particularly open source, to defend against the most pressing integrity threats. With SLSA, consumers can make informed choices about the security posture of the software they consume."
The Business Logic Attack Definition Framework sets the stage for shared understanding and knowledge among vendors, cybersecurity professionals and customers who are proactively tackling an increasing number of malicious bot threats. Once the attack stages for a scalper bot attack were confirmed, Netacea analysed the tactics, techniques and processes of other types of bot attacks and captured all automated bot threats and their lifecycles in a series of comprehensive kill chains.
IonQ announced the full integration of its quantum computing platform with Cirq, an open-source quantum computing framework from Google. "From its origins, the vision for Cirq was to expand access to quantum computing to even broader audiences," said Dave Bacon, VP of Software at IonQ. "As a developer myself, I know that a smoother, simpler implementation is a better implementation, one that will be more useful in the real world. Volkswagen has shown that developing in Cirq on IonQ has real benefits for real problems faced by development teams."
Elastic announces new updates across the Elastic Security solution in its 7.13 release to broaden support for osquery, the open source host instrumentation framework, with a new host management integration for Elastic Agent and unified analysis of osquery host data. The osquery host management integration, now in beta, enables security teams to use osquery results to address cyber threats without the complexity or cost of a separate management layer.
