70 percent of mobile and desktop applications that today we use are affected at least by one security flaw that is present in open-source libraries.

Software and Security engineering as a discipline is getting increased attention across the Department of Defense (DoD) as a mission enabler. Historically the DoD used an engineering approach that is independent from the type of product. Hardware and software then followed the same generic engineering principles. These principles focused on areas such as
The Linux Security Summit (LSS) is a technical forum for collaboration between Linux developers, researchers, and end users. Its primary aim is to foster community efforts in analyzing and solving Linux security challenges.
The role of software acquisition ecosystems in the development and evolution of secure open architecture systems has received insufficient consideration. Such systems are composed of software components subject to different security requirements in an architecture in which evolution can occur by evolving existing components or by replacing them. But this may
DoD is working with GitHub, an open source platform, to experiment with fostering more collaboration between private sector software developers and federal employees on software projects built within the DoD. The Code.mil URL redirects users to an online repository that will house code written for a range of projects across DoD for individuals to review and
Industry standards morph into functional computer software. I use the word “morph” on purpose to avoid any term that can be found in US copyright or patent law. Morphing is a special effect in motion pictures and animation to turn one image into another through a seamless transition. Wikipedia shows an image of George W. Bush morphing into Arnold
Open source software (OSS) usage is growing across the Department of Defense (DoD), not surprisingly so is the community of open source developers and integrators. In industry and the technology community at large many consider open source to be somewhat of a social movement centered around the free exchange of technological ideas; however across the DoD,
Mil-OSS connects and empowers an active community of civilian and military open source software and hardware developers across the United States: http://www.mil-oss.org/ MIL-OSS Google Group: http://groups.google.com/group/mil-oss?hl=en A coalition organized to serve as a centralized advocate, to encourage broader U.S. Federal Government support of and
How to get started” is a question continually asked. This article lays out the basic framework for running an open technology development (OTD) military focused project. The first section describes how to establish an OTD program once a project proposal has been accepted. The next sections discuss establishing a technical infrastructure for collaboration,
There is an overwhelming amount of open source software (OSS) available today that can be used throughout the software development life cycle. Nowadays, it is generally not a matter of whether one should use OSS, but rather, where one should use it. If one were to start a new software development project, he would probably begin by looking for various types
