Victims of our success: how open source vulnerabilities became a national security risk

Current national attention on software supply chain security is an indirect response to the success of open source -- but what exactly is open source? Is it a cultural movement or a business strategy or a type of software license or a radical expression of creativity and First Amendment rights? Hint: it's all of these.

In this session, Aeva will reach thirty years into our history to discuss what open source maintainers can begin doing to prepare for federal SBOM (software bill of materials) requirements under discussion in Congress today.
