go-tuf Build Status

This is a Go implementation of The Update Framework (TUF), a framework for securing software update systems.

Directory layout

A TUF repository has the following directory layout:

.
├── keys
├── repository
│   └── targets
└── staged
    └── targets

The directories contain the following files:

  • keys/ - signing keys (optionally encrypted) with filename pattern ROLE.json
  • repository/ - signed manifests
  • repository/targets/ - hashed target files
  • staged/ - either signed, unsigned or partially signed manifests
  • staged/targets/ - unhashed target files

CLI

go-tuf provides a CLI for managing a local TUF repository.

Install

go get github.com/flynn/go-tuf/cmd/tuf

Commands

tuf init [--consistent-snapshot=false]

Initializes a new repository.

This is only required if the repository should not generate consistent snapshots (i.e. by passing --consistent-snapshot=false). If consistent snapshots should be generated, the repository will be implicitly initialized to do so when generating keys.

tuf gen-key [--expires=<days>] <role>

Prompts the user for an encryption passphrase (unless the --insecure-plaintext flag is set), then generates a new signing key and writes it to the relevant key file in the keys directory. It also stages the addition of the new key to the root manifest.

tuf add [<path>...]

Hashes files in the staged/targets directory at the given path(s), then updates and stages the targets manifest. Specifying no paths hashes all files in the staged/targets directory.

tuf remove [<path>...]

Stages the removal of files with the given path(s) from the targets manifest (they get removed from the filesystem when the change is committed). Specifying no paths removes all files from the targets manifest.

tuf snapshot [--compression=<format>]

Expects a staged, fully signed targets manifest and stages an appropriate snapshot manifest. It optionally compresses the staged targets manifest.

tuf timestamp

Stages an appropriate timestamp manifest. If a snapshot manifest is staged, it must be fully signed.

tuf sign ROLE

Signs the given role's staged manifest with all keys present in the keys directory for that role.

tuf commit

Verifies that all staged changes contain the correct information and are signed to the correct threshold, then moves the staged files into the repository directory. It also removes any target files which are not in the targets manifest.

tuf regenerate [--consistent-snapshot=false]

Recreates the targets manifest based on the files in repository/targets.

tuf clean

Removes all staged manifests and targets.

tuf root-keys

Outputs a JSON serialized array of root keys to STDOUT. The resulting JSON should be distributed to clients for performing initial updates.

For a list of supported commands, run tuf help from the command line.

Examples

The following are example workflows for managing a TUF repository with the CLI.

The tree commands do not need to be run, but their output serve as an illustration of what files should exist after performing certain commands.

Although only two machines are referenced (i.e. the “root” and “repo” boxes), the workflows can be trivially extended to many signing machines by copying staged changes and signing on each machine in turn before finally committing.

Some key IDs are truncated for illustrative purposes.

Create signed root manifest

Generate a root key on the root box:

$ tuf gen-key root
Enter root keys passphrase:
Repeat root keys passphrase:
Generated root key with ID 184b133f

$ tree .
.
├── keys
│   └── root.json
├── repository
└── staged
    ├── root.json
    └── targets

Copy staged/root.json from the root box to the repo box and generate targets, snapshot and timestamp keys:

$ tree .
.
├── keys
├── repository
└── staged
    ├── root.json
    └── targets

$ tuf gen-key targets
Enter targets keys passphrase:
Repeat targets keys passphrase:
Generated targets key with ID 8cf4810c

$ tuf gen-key snapshot
Enter snapshot keys passphrase:
Repeat snapshot keys passphrase:
Generated snapshot key with ID 3e070e53

$ tuf gen-key timestamp
Enter timestamp keys passphrase:
Repeat timestamp keys passphrase:
Generated timestamp key with ID a3768063

$ tree .
.
├── keys
│   ├── snapshot.json
│   ├── targets.json
│   └── timestamp.json
├── repository
└── staged
    ├── root.json
    └── targets

Copy staged/root.json from the repo box back to the root box and sign it:

$ tree .
.
├── keys
│   ├── root.json
├── repository
└── staged
    ├── root.json
    └── targets

$ tuf sign root.json
Enter root keys passphrase:

The staged root.json can now be copied back to the repo box ready to be committed alongside other manifests.

Add a target file

Assuming a staged, signed root manifest and the file to add exists at staged/targets/foo/bar/baz.txt:

$ tree .
.

│   ├── targets.json
│   └── timestamp.json

        └── foo
            └── bar
                └── baz.txt

$ tuf add foo/bar/baz.txt
Enter targets keys passphrase:

    │       └── bar

$ tuf snapshot
Enter snapshot keys passphrase:

$ tuf timestamp
Enter timestamp keys passphrase:
