CycloneDX Python SBOM Generation Tool
This tool generates Software Bill of material (SBOM) documents in OWASP CycloneDX format.
Supported data sources are:
- Python (virtual) environment
Poetrymanifest and lockfile
Pipenvmanifest and lockfile
PDMmanifest and lockfile are not explicitly supported.
However, PDM's Python virtual environments are fully supported. See the docs for an example.
Condaas a package manager is no longer supported since version 4.
However, conda's Python environments are fully supported via the methods listed above. See the docs for an example.
Based on OWASP Software Component Verification Standard for Software Bill of Materials's criteria, this tool is capable of producing SBOM documents almost passing Level-2 (only signing needs to be done externally).
The resulting SBOM documents follow official specifications and standards,
and might have properties following
cdx:python Namespace Taxonomy,
cdx:pipenv Namespace Taxonomy,
cdx:poetry Namespace Taxonomy

Advanced usage and details
See the full documentation for advanced usage and details on input formats, switches and options.
We endeavour to support all functionality for all current actively supported Python versions.
However, some features may not be possible/present in older Python versions due to their lack of support.

This tool utilizes the CycloneDX Python library to generate the actual data structures, and serialize and validate them.
This tool does not expose any additional public API or symbols - all code is intended to be internal and might change without any notice during version upgrades. However, the CLI is stable - you might call it programmatically. See the documentation for an example.
