During Open Source Summit NA 2024, Mitch Ashley and Omkhar Arasaratnam, General Manager of the Open Source Security Foundation (OSSF), discuss how the OSSF improves security across open source projects, particularly those supporting critical infrastructure.

The discussion includes:

  • The importance of securing open source software as critical infrastructure.
  • The Open Source Security Foundation’s (OSSF) role in improving open source software and project security.
  • Maintaining the well-being of open source project maintainers. i.e. the XZ project compromise.
  • Improving response capabilities to open source vulnerabilities and security incidents.
