sigstore · npm version CI Status Smoke Test Status

A JavaScript library for generating and verifying Sigstore signatures. One of the intended uses is to sign and verify npm packages but it can be used to sign and verify any file.

Features

  • Support for signing using an OpenID Connect identity
  • Support for publishing signatures to a Rekor instance
  • Support for verifying Sigstore bundles

Prerequisites

  • Node.js version >= 16.14.0

Installation

npm install sigstore

Compatibility

The following table documents which combinations of Sigstore bundle versions and Rekor types can be verified by different versions of the sigstore library. It also lists which sigstore versions were shipped with different npm CLI versions.

sigstore 1.0 1.1 1.2 1.3 1.4 1.5 1.6 1.7 1.8
npm 9.5.0 9.6.2 9.6.3 9.6.5 9.6.6 9.6.7 9.7.2 9.8.0
Bundle Version Rekor Type

Usage

const { attest, verify } = require('sigstore');
import { attest, verify } from 'sigstore';

sign(payload[, options])

Generates a Sigstore signature for the supplied payload. Returns a Sigstore bundle containing the signature and the verification material necessary to verify the signature.

  • payload <Buffer>: The bytes of the artifact to be signed.
  • options <Object>
    • fulcioURL <string>: The base URL of the Fulcio instance to use for retrieving the signing certificate. Defaults to 'https://fulcio.sigstore.dev'.
    • rekorURL <string>: The base URL of the Rekor instance to use when adding the signature to the transparency log. Defaults to 'https://rekor.sigstore.dev'.
    • tsaServerURL <string>: The base URL of the Timestamp Authority instance to use when requesting a signed timestamp. If omitted, no timestamp will be requested.
    • tlogUpload <boolean>: Flag indicating whether or not the signature should be recorded on the Rekor transparency log. Defaults to true.
    • identityToken <string>: The OIDC token identifying the signer. If no explicit token is supplied, an attempt will be made to retrieve one from the environment. This config cannot be used with identityProvider.
    • identityProvider <IdentityProvider>: Object which implements getToken: () => Promise<string>. The supplied provider will be used to retrieve an OIDC token. If no provider is supplied, an attempt will be made to retrieve an OIDC token from the environment. This config cannot be used with identityToken.

attest(payload, payloadType[, options])

Generates a Sigstore signature for the supplied in-toto statement. Returns a Sigstore bundle containing the DSSE-wrapped statement and signature as well as the verification material necessary to verify the signature.

  • payload <Buffer>: The bytes of the statement to be signed.
  • payloadType <string>: MIME or content type describing the statement to be signed.
  • options <Object>
    • fulcioURL <string>: The base URL of the Fulcio instance to use for retrieving the signing certificate. Defaults to 'https://fulcio.sigstore.dev'.
    • rekorURL <string>: The base URL of the Rekor instance to use when adding the signature to the transparency log. Defaults to 'https://rekor.sigstore.dev'.
    • tsaServerURL <string>: The base URL of the Timestamp Authority instance to use when requesting a signed timestamp. If omitted, no timestamp will be requested.
    • tlogUpload <boolean>: Flag indicating whether or not the signed statement should be recorded on the Rekor transparency log. Defaults to true.
    • identityToken <string>: The OIDC token identifying the signer. If no explicit token is supplied, an attempt will be made to retrieve one from the environment. This config cannot be used with identityProvider.
    • identityProvider <IdentityProvider>: Object which implements getToken: () => Promise<string>. The supplied provider will be used to retrieve an OIDC token. If no provider is supplied, an attempt will be made to retrieve an OIDC token from the environment. This config cannot be used with identityToken.

verify(bundle[, payload][, options])

Verifies the signature in the supplied bundle.

  • bundle <Bundle>: The Sigstore bundle containing the signature to be verified and the verification material necessary to verify the signature.
  • payload <Buffer>: The bytes of the artifact over which the signature was created. Only necessary when the sign function was used to generate the signature since the Bundle does not contain any information about the artifact which was signed. Not required when the attest function was used to generate the Bundle.
  • options <Object>
    • ctLogThreshold <number>: The number of certificate transparency logs on which the signing certificate must appear. Defaults to 1.
    • tlogThreshold <number>: The number of transparency logs on which the signature must appear. Defaults to 1.
    • certificateIssuer <string>: Value that must appear in the signing certificate's issuer extension (OID 1.3.6.1.4.1.57264.1.1). Not verified if no value is supplied.
    • certificateIdentityEmail <string>: Email address which must appear in the signing certificate's Subject Alternative Name (SAN) extension. Must be specified in conjunction with the certificateIssuer option. Takes precedence over the certificateIdentityURI option. Not verified if no value is supplied.
    • certificateIdentityURI <string>: URI which must appear in the signing certificate's Subject Alternative Name (SAN) extension. Must be specified in conjunction with the certificateIssuer option. Ignored if the certificateIdentityEmail option is set. Not verified if no value is supplied.
    • certificateOIDs <Object>: A collection of OID/value pairs which must be present in the certificate's extension list. Not verified if no value is supplied.
    • keySelector <Function>: Callback invoked to retrieve the public key (as either string or Buffer) necessary to verify the bundle signature. Not used when the signature was generated from a Fulcio-issued signing certificate.
      • hint <String>: The hint from the bundle used to identify the the signing key.

Credential Sources

GitHub Actions

If sigstore-js detects that it is being executed on GitHub Actions, it will use ACTIONS_ID_TOKEN_REQUEST_URL and ACTIONS_ID_TOKEN_REQUEST_TOKEN environment variables to request an OIDC token with the correct scope.

Note: the id_token: write permission must be granted to the GitHub Action Job.

See https://docs.github.com/en/actions/deployment/security-hardening-your-deployments/about-security-hardening-with-openid-connect for more details.

Environment Variables

If the SIGSTORE_ID_TOKEN environment variable is set, it will use this to authenticate to Fulcio. It is the callers responsibility to make sure that this token has the correct scopes.
