Secure Open Source Software Vision Brief 2023

OpenSSF SOSS Vision Brief 2023

On September 12-13, 2023 the OpenSSF hosted the Secure Open Source Software (SOSS) Summit 2023 in Washington, DC to address the security challenges for the consumption of Open Source Software (OSS) in critical infrastructure sectors and beyond. Participation in the Summit included industry leaders and US Government (USG) officials from the National Security Council (NSC), Office of the National Cyber Director (ONCD), and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) among others. 

During the SOSS Summit, the OpenSSF released a Vision Brief detailing our community’s work over the past year to secure OSS and plan for the future.
