AppSec Guide: The Open Source Supply Chain Can Be Fixed
Understand threats to your development process and create a plan to improve your open source supply chain security
Like it or not, software vendors are now the frontline of security for their customers. Security and software professionals alike must take steps to ensure their existing software development processes have not been compromised, and to secure their software supply chain going forward.
As software supply chain complexity increases, verifying the security and integrity of the software development lifecycle must rely more and more on automated validation of key software development processes when importing, building and consuming open source components. To date, this has been accomplished by cobbling together point solutions from multiple vendors, as well as implementing best practices at a cost of significant time and resources.
