OpenChain Introduction @ NTIA Software Bill of Materials Framing Group

 

OpenChain Introduction @ NTIA Software Bill of Materials Framing Group

The OpenChain Project was introduced by Shane Coughlan, General Manager at the latest NTIA Software Bill of Materials Framing Group. The OpenChain industry standard provides a framework for companies to implement efficient compliance activities, including identification on ingest and export, using manual or automated approaches. Software bill of materials play a large part in optimizing this space, especially in the supply chain.

OpenChain Next Generation Specification – Editing Kick Off

 

The OpenChain Specification is a growing de facto standard that will shortly become an ISO standard via ISO. A lot of our work is focused on providing reference material to help guide new adopters throughout the supply chain. However, at the same time we are preparing to gather and considering real world feedback from our ISO deployment, and the best way to channel that feedback into future improvements to the standard. That process began on Monday with an overview of how we will approach receiving and considering feedback.

OpenChain Spec - Next Gen After ISO - initial discussion 10am Pacific, May 4th

 

Dear all

Immediately after our 3rd webinar covering contribution policies, M&A and due diligence between 9am and 10am Pacific May 4th, Mark Gisi will lead a 20 minute first drafting discussion of the next gen OpenChain, OpenChain 3. 

Why?

OpenChain 2 has been deployed for one year. It will be released in ISO form in the coming months. We expect the 2nd gen standard to run for several years as a clear lighthouse to guide all compliance work.

Meanwhile, starting the draft process for OpenChain 3 this month will allow us to get feedback and experience from existing, new and near future adopters. We will use this to carefully consider what adjustments, clarifications and extensions will work for all our stakeholders. It’s a great conversation to join if you want to help frame the future.


Regards

Shane

Hi all!

I have started a blue-sky document to contextualize and explain OpenChain for procurement departments, something that will become increasingly possible throughout this year, especially after we become a formal ISO standard. Can you put some eyes on and provide suggestions for improvement?
