SLSA is a specification for describing and incrementally improving supply chain security, established by industry consensus. It is organized into a series of levels that describe increasing security guarantees.
This is version 1.0 of the SLSA specification, which defines the SLSA levels and recommended attestation formats, including provenance.
These pages provide an overview of SLSA, how it helps protect against common supply chain attacks, and common use cases. If you’re new to SLSA or supply chain security, start here.
