Can store the metadata in a range of databases:

  • PostgreSQL
  • BoltDB
  • Spanner
  • OracleDB

It defines an API for managing metadata for Software supply chain, including (but not limited to)

  • Container images
  • VM's
  • .jar files
  • scripts

it works by taking the metadata (The additional details about the files and packages) and splitting it in to:

  • Notes
    • Notes are high level descriptions of a type of metadata
  • Occurrences
    • Occurrences are instantiations (noun. Countable) of the Notes, and where they happen.

By doing this, it allows third party metadata providers to create and manage metadata.

Allows for fine-grained access to the types of metadata
