Automating your license compliance policy with OSS Review Toolkit

D.composition
Thomas Steenbergen
In this session we will demonstrate how to write a license policy in OSS Review Toolkit to automatically check the licenses found in a project and its dependencies. One of the reasons OSS Review Toolkit was started by its creators was a need to go beyond the usual allow/deny license policy in most SCA tools. For instance we wanted to be able to write checks with multiple levels of compliance depending on what was being reviewed or based on package meta data. In this session we will demonstrate how one can write license policy with checks/rules that take into account package metadata date or the code, license and product context.

Software Composition Analysis (SCA) tools perform source-code analysis, comparison and identification of Open Source components. Sadly, none of the SCA vendors have embraced Open Source themselves, most of their tooling consists of proprietary code and their OSS Knowledge Bases are also closed.

The very short time is some placeholder between presentation groups to have questions being asked and answered or just simple to have a break.
