Open source is the bedrock of most of the world’s software today, so how to raise the floor on software quality across the industry? First, we need better tools to measure the trustworthiness of code based on objective measures, processes that encourage better security practices by developers, and tools and processes that encourage teamwork and shared responsibility for security. Several efforts are underway in major open source communities to address these issues. At the Open Source Security Foundation (OpenSSF), major companies, open source software maintainers, startup companies and government actors are working together to improve open source software supply chain security. Brian will share his view of this landscape, detail the work being done at the OpenSSF, show where those efforts are already bearing fruit, and demonstrate what you and your organization can (must!) do to participate in these efforts.
