Scanning for known vulnerabilities in an embedded distribution

A return on experience from the Eclipse Oniro project

Marta Rybczynska
<p>A Linux distribution is a great playing field for testing tools for vulnerability scanning. It is even a better playing field if it includes more operating system kernels, like the Eclipse Oniro project does. Eclipse Oniro targets the Internet of Things (IOT) domain, where fixing security issues is critical.</p> <p>In this talk, Marta is going to present a return on experience of scanning for known vulerabilities (CVEs) in the Eclipse Oniro project. The presentation is going to start with an overview of tools based on Yocto's cve-check and additions from the Oniro project. Then it will cover examples of fixes, situations when we found errors in databases and tools, and how we fixed them. Finally, Marta is going to describe ideas of improvements in existing tools and propose new tools that can help the community.</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>
