This brief example demonstrates how to upload a signed Helm chart to Rekor and validate the entry

Upload a Signed Helm Chart

$ helm sigstore upload <path_to_packaged_chart>

Created Helm entry at index 6821, available at: https://rekor.sigstore.dev/api/v1/log/entries/b30a142ef6c8b0480cd3e081fc99bc3d2a1a50ef60f68749c983a1479be6c4b9

NOTE: The provenance file must be located in the same directory as the packaged chart.

To generate a provenance file, please consult the official documentation of Helm Provenance and Integrity.

Verify the Signed Chart from Rekor

Use the same signed Helm chart from the prior section to verify the entry in Rekor

helm sigstore verify <path_to_packaged_chart>
Chart Verified Successfully From Helm entry:

Rekor Server: https://rekor.sigstore.dev
Rekor Index: 6821
Rekor UUID: b30a142ef6c8b0480cd3e081fc99bc3d2a1a50ef60f68749c983a1479be6c4b9
