IV. Statement


Reliable Energy Analytics, LLC (REA), the owner of patent number 11,374,961, is a very small software engineering firm lacking the full resources needed to broadly expand and support it's software supply chain risk management intellectual property and is exploring pathways to make the Software Assurance Guardian (TM) patent and other intellectual property, i.e. Trademarks, Copyrights, SAG-PM (TM)software and related materials available as broadly as possible to enhance cyber software supply chain security risk management across critical infrastructure. Discussions are currently underway to transfer these REA intellectual properties to a more appropriate, well resourced steward of these materials.


A computer-implemented method includes determining, by a processor, an authenticity of a software object and its supply chain and providing an authenticity result indicative thereof; determining, by the processor, an integrity of the software object and its supply chain and providing an integrity result indicative thereof; and determining, by the processor, from the authenticity result and the integrity result, a score indicative of an amount of trust in the supply chain of the software object and in the software object, wherein the score is indicative of an amount of trust that the software object will work correctly if installed in a system that utilizes the software object.
