The proficient and highly productive software engineers developing and supporting the NTIA supported CycloneDX SBOM standard within OWASP have announced the release of version 1.3 with some cool new features that will help improve software supply chain verification along with a plethora of tools to help implement SBOM now. Here are a few noteworthy features of this release:

The inventory of components, services, and their relationships to one another can be described using compositions.

Properties / name-value store:
The CycloneDX standard is fully extensible allowing for complex data to be represented in the SBOM that is not provided by the core specification.

Your access to Member Features is limited.

Copyright and license evidence:
In addition to the existing support for component-level copyrights, SPDX license IDs, SPDX license expressions, and unresolved license names, CycloneDX now supports evidence of copyrights and licenses

SBOM license
The CycloneDX spec has never defaulted to a specific license, but now includes the ability to specify a license for which the SBOM itself is licensed under.

Finally, the CycloneDX tool center has been updated and should now include the tools that are referenced in the CycloneDX tools document from NTIA.
