FASTEN: Fine-Grained Analysis of Software Ecosystems as Networks

<p>In modern software development, it is common to use open-source software (OSS) to boost productivity. According to the National Vulnerability Database, OSS often has security vulnerabilities. On the other hand, research has shown that developers do not update their dependencies. Because existing security tools suffer from a high false-positive rate as they analyze software at the package level.</p> <p>FASTEN analyzes software packages at the finer-grain level by producing an enormous network of software ecosystems. This allows giving vulnerability information at the method level. With this information, developers are notified when their code uses vulnerable methods, and hence they are more confident to update their dependencies. The said functionality will be provided in the famous package managers such as Maven and PyPI.</p>

<p>Package URLs are a compact way to identify software packages across multiple ecosystems. Together with the new "vers" Version Range Specifier, these two mini specs will offer a new way to create new, mostly universal dependency resolvers and installers, working across ecosystems.</p>

<p>Legal Risk Mitigation is one of the three main functions of an <a href="https://github.com/todogroup/ospodefinition.org">OSPO</a> (designated places where open source is supported, nurtured, shared, explained, and grown inside an organization). OSPOs often oversee aspects of a company’s open source license compliance process and supply chain as one of the first activities. The responsibilities include:</p> <ul> <li>Maintaining open source license compliance reviews and oversight</li> ...

<p>This talk aims at presenting our trials and tribulations as well as our achievements in designing a compliance software project for open source licenses.</p> <p><em>"Are all module licenses in our software project compliant with each other ?"</em> Many of our customers have asked us this question even though they already had a plethora of software solutions (not always FOSS software) dealing with this topic. This surprised us, and led us to seek out the cause of their uncertainty. We then ...

<p>The management of SBoM (software bill of material) is very important for companies to comply with the OpenChain specification.The latest features of SW360 support the management of license obligations and the management of SBOMs in SPDX format. In this presentation, I will introduce and demonstrate the features of SW360.</p>

<p>Granted that software composition and dependency processing are very relevant for software engineering. The presentations have pointed out how such processing is embedded into activities of an organization. We would like to gather feedback about how the current status of adoption and integration looks like.</p>
