Managing Your Software Supply Chain with SPDX and Open Chain - Phil Odence, Black Duck Software and Catharina Maracke, Keio University

Modern software mixes open source and proprietary components and is multi-sourced at most nodes in the supply chain. Supply chain compliance requires upstream best practices and production of standardized bills of materials. But mismatched expectations and capabilities in the supply chain cause delivery bottlenecks, security risks from components and license compliance risks. Organizations depending on suppliers need to address these friction points. SPDX is a standard for communicating open source content, licenses, and copyrights. OpenChain is a standard for governance, monitoring, and compliance across the software development lifecycle that provides benchmark against which companies can measure their suppliers. This presentation explores how SPDX and OpenChain can help companies overcome the challenges of managing open source governance and compliance across the supply chain.
