The OpenChain Project held its annual an all-day summit adjacent to Open Source Summit Europe (OSS EU) on the 14th of September. This event featured news from our latest board meeting (including the decision to launch our new security specification), a deep dive into a significant new automation landscape to assist with license, security and export control compliance, SBOM discussions and more.
Check out the full recording below alongside copies of our excellent keynote presentation from Andrew Katz of Orcro and the automation landscape capability map presentation delivered by Jan Thielscher of EACG on behalf of the OpenChain Reference Tooling Work Group.
Here are the key takeaways:
- The OpenChain Project now maintains a family of specifications to build trust in the supply chain. We started with license compliance and now we have a sister standard for security.
- Open source automation for open source license, security and export control compliance is getting a clear capability map to guide investment of resources and save time.
- Software Bill of Materials (SBOM) has seen great progress in the last year or two, and the OpenChain Telco Work Group is working on very practical items related to market adoption.
- Open source licensing discussions have become somewhat stale and there is scope for considering the future of open source licensing approaches.
