What is SBOM?
An SBOM is a formal list that enumerates the components and dependencies of a software package. It provides a comprehensive inventory of the software components that are present in the package, including open-source software, commercial components, and proprietary code.
SBOMs are essential for software security and compliance because they enable users to identify vulnerabilities and track the origins of software components. By providing an SBOM for our Docker images, we enable our users to have better visibility into the software components used in our product.
