An Open Book Test: Securing Open Source Software with OpenSSF’s Scorecard


Room Qu4b

Wednesday, April 12th 2023
11:30 AM—12:30 PM EST

Open source software is the backbone of the internet. It permeates our lives in ways that at times, are difficult to fully appreciate.

In recent years, pervasive software supply chain attacks have shined a bright light on the long-term sustainability of our open source ecosystems, including attention from enterprises and government agencies across the world.

So if you use, contribute to, or maintain open source software, how can you help?

Use OpenSSF Scorecard!

Scorecard is a tool to help analyze the security posture of open source projects.

In this talk, you’ll learn about how Scorecard works, how it can improve the projects you use, and how YOU can contribute to making our software ecosystem a more secure place.
