Introduction to Reproducible Builds


The Reproducible Builds project creates infrastructure and fixes upstream code so that binaries can be independently verified as the result of compiling source code. Without verifying the connection between source code and binary software, toolchains become a tempting target to inject exploits.

This talk will demonstrate why reproducibility matters, common issues and fixes, and tools used to identify and troubleshoot issues, moving towards reproducibility as a set of best practices when developing and improving software.
