JFrog Artifactory

JFrog Artifactory is a universal artifact repository manager. It is designed to store, manage, and distribute binaries and artifacts produced during the software development process. These artifacts can include compiled code, libraries, dependencies, Docker images, and more.

Usage of JFrog Artifactory in SSD

The following are the uses of integrating JFrog artifactory with SSD:

  • JFrog artifactory notifies each pipeline execution to SSD. It identifies the image for every build and connects SSD to the the artifactory repo to pull the newly built image.

  • SSD connects with the Artifactory repo, and pulls the images and runs the security scans on them. The scanned results are available in the Vulnerability Management page, Artifact section of the DBOM page.

  • JFrog artifactory helps in collecting metadata such as Artifact SHA to perform the artifact integrity checks and ensure security in the supply chain. The collected information is populated in the DBOM page for audit purposes.
