Streamlining Open Source License Compliance with SPDX

The ubiquity of software in products from cars to handsets to power plants makes it clear that open source code is being channeled through supply chains in almost every industry, and driving the need for standards like SPDX. In this presentation, Kirsten Newcomer, member of the SPDX working group, will review the benefits of SPDX and the working group process, outline use cases which are driving the working group, and provide insight into participating organizations. Kirsten will also present a case study of how software tools help automate the creation of SPDX files, and how customers are using SPDX to improve compliance and manage obligations. Attendees will learn about cross-cutting concerns such as provenance, package contents validation, how file-level licenses affect package licensing, how usage affects obligations, and how automation can be used to ensure efficient development.
