Authentication of Software Delivery

StarlingX signs and authenticates software updates to the StarlingX software.

This is done for:

  • Software patches – incremental updates to system for software fixes or security vulnerabilities.

  • Software loads – full software loads to upgrade the system to a new major release of software.

Both software patches and loads are cryptographically signed as part of StarlingX builds and are authenticated before they are loaded on a system via StarlingX REST APIs, CLIs or GUI.
