This is an enhancement proposal to the CycloneDX specification to add support for file as a type of component.

Currently a component can be one of:

  • application
  • library
  • framework
  • hardware
  • operating-system

This proposal is to add file as an additional type to account for more granular use-cases.

A common use case would be to define a component (i.e library) and within the library component define child components (already possible) with the type specified as file. In doing so, it would be possible to document all files that a component contains.
