OpenStack's Secrets to Success: Rapid Innovation and Community Growth

Wed, 12/17/2014 - 17:30
Webinar

OpenStack is one of the fastest growing open source projects in the world today. With over 11,000 individual members from 130 countries and 1,000 different organizations, the OpenStack ecosystem is producing some of the best cloud software in the industry.  This kind of success is not only tied to a hot technology, but also to the way the OpenStack Foundation is structured and how it works with the community that surrounds its projects.

While code may be the most tangible product of an open source community, the collaborative development methods they employ and the innovation and creativity they exhibit are raising the interest of commercial development organizations everywhere. The question many senior development managers are asking is ‚Äúif we emulate community methods, encourage sharing both inside and outside our organization, can we be more productive, creative? How can we connect with these communities to tap their expertise and leverage their collective knowledge?¬† How do we influence their direction?‚ÄĚ

Join us for this simulive webinar featuring insights from Jonathan Bryce, Executive Director of the OpenStack Foundation, Mark Radcliffe, legal advisor to the Open Stack Foundation and Partner at DLA Piper, and Karen Copenhaver, General Counsel to the Linux Foundation and Partner at Choate Hall & Stewart.

Attendees of this webinar will learn:

  • Get the inside scoop on how OpenStack‚Äôs governance, methods and culture are enabling innovation and creativity. ¬†
  • How OpenStack‚Äôs community culture and policies make it easy for commercial organizations to engage and collaborate.
  • How your organization can get involved with OpenStack and other open source communities to increase innovation, productivity and creativity.

T. Rowe Price on How to Stay Competitive with Open Source Governance

Wed, 11/12/2014 - 17:30
Webinar

To fully deliver on the promise of open source software (OSS), companies need to automate the management of open source from the point it enters the organization, throughout the development process, and across the supply chain. Without this level of logistical control over enterprise OSS usage, organizations face licensing, operational, and security risks.

While they navigate the complexities of OSS compliance, organizations are also trying to streamline the build process by deploying build automation and continuous integration solutions. Integrating OSS governance into build automation significantly improves business agility and development efficiencies.   

Join Michael Wasiak, ____ and Bill Weinberg, Director of Open Source Strategy at Black Duck, for a discussion on how integrating governance and build automation empowers software development organizations to:

  • Standardize use of selected open source components and versions by cross-checking build manifests against approved OSS component catalogs
  • Enable support of chosen OSS and coordinate OSS selection with integration and build
  • Increase re-use of software by highlighting pre-approved components

Xerox Talks Best Practices for Open Source Governance

Thu, 11/06/2014 - 20:00
Webinar

Xerox pioneered digital imaging, the graphical user interface, and the Ethernet, among other technological innovations. Today, the company is finding new ways to innovate using open source software (OSS). OSS has become nearly ubiquitous in the corporate enterprise, with developers turning to it to reduce costs, enhance flexibility, and reduce time to market. But as organizations increase their use of open source, they need better solutions to the logistical challenges that accompany its use.  
 
Join Robert Levine, Licensing Executive for Xerox, and Black Duck as they discuss open source best practices, common challenges, and emerging trends. You’ll learn about tools for managing open source, and hear the answers to commonly asked questions including:
 

  • Why should a company want to be compliant when it comes to OSS usage, and what are the impacts of non-compliance?
  • When should companies start thinking about OSS compliance?
  • What steps are needed to build a successful OSS compliance program?
  • Who should be involved in building an OSS policy?

Open Source Projects and Foundations: A Users Guide - Part 2

Tue, 09/30/2014 - 16:30
Webinar

Even companies that were very hesitant to embrace open source a few short years ago are now seeing the value of actively participating in open, collaborative communities and, in some cases, even starting their own projects.  In order to get the most out of your participation and avoid missteps you need to understand community norms and expectations in general as well as with respect to the specific projects in which you chose to participate.  It is a different way of thinking about value - both in terms of what you give and what you receive.  Giving back to the open source community is not a charitable contribution; it is a savvy business practice.   But recognizing that the coin of the realm in an open source community is trust is key to understanding its operation. 

Wherever your company is on the continuum of open source adoption and whatever your company‚Äôs role in the community ‚ÄĒ contributor, consumer, participant or founder ‚ÄĒ it important to understand the function of projects and foundations.

Join Karen Copenhaver, Partner at Choate Hall & Stewart and Counsel for the Linux Foundation and Mark Radcliffe, Partner at DLA Piperand General Counsel for the Open Source Initiative (OSI) in the last of this two-part series that will focus on projects and foundations from the perspective of a consumer: 

  • Contribution structures
  • How to evaluate a project
  • When it makes sense to get deeply involved and when it makes sense for your company to financially support a project or foundation.

Legal Seminar - Practical Legal Guidance for Crafting Open Source Policies

Fri, 09/26/2014 - 20:56

MCLE Certified Event

Tightening budgets and competitive pressures have many IT organizations turning to open source software (OSS) to increase agility and accelerate innovation.  However, a recent Gartner report states that 50% of companies will face challenges due to a lack of OSS policy and management.

While OSS provides many competitive advantages, most IT organizations are yet to uncover its full potential. Many have no strategy for optimizing development with OSS and often ignore or are unaware of the technical, business and legal challenges of multi-source development, resulting in subpar processes and performance. Companies are similarly unaware that OSS is being used within their business environment and that in many cases, OSS is already contained within their own proprietary code ‚Äď the legal and business implications of which can have dramatic and unintended results to a business if not correctly managed.¬†¬†

During the last year, several software companies have sued over OSS licenses seeking both damages and injunctive relief. In the past, disputes were generally handled within the community and the remedy sought was compliance with the license terms.  These developments suggest that lack of compliance may have additional risks.

Black Duck and DLA Piper, invite you to attend one of our legal seminars where we will cover:

  • The latest OSS trends
  • Overviews of some of the most popular OSS licenses (including the GPL)
  • Some common case studies for OSS management
  • The impact of OSS during mergers & acquisitions and other transactions
  • Some recent litigation involving OSS

Shellshock

Fri, 09/26/2014 - 16:46
*/

Shellshock Tips and Resources

Concerns are rising about the recently-discovered Shellshock vulnerability, a flaw in the Bash software component, which is an integral part of Linux, Unix, and Apple’s Mac operating system. Shellshock could potentially affect hundreds of millions of computers, servers, and devices.

While Heartbleed allowed anyone on the Internet to read the memory of the systems protected by the vulnerable versions of OpenSSL, attackers are now using Shellshock to gain direct access to systems. Since so many web sites run the Apache server, which employs the Bash component, the threat is particularly serious and widespread.  

How Black Duck Can Help

In server and desktop software, Black Duck’s scanning capabilities can inform system administrators and integrators about the presence of affected versions of the Bash shell. Black Duck can also work with organizations to help them determine whether vulnerable versions of Bash persist in their manifests, build trees, and catalogs. 

Black Duck's enterprise-wide open source management solutions provide the visibility and control you need to keep your software secure.

IDENTIFY

Quickly identify which components have vulnerabilities and where they are in use.

REMEDIATE

Easily assess determined vulnerabilities and make necessary updates.

SECURE

Proactively monitor your codebase, receiving automatic alerts for potential security exposures.

 

When critical vulnerabilities like Shellshock and Heartbleed are identified, Black Duck customers can quickly assess their software and, when necessary, easily update it everywhere the vulnerability is found ‚Äď a tremendous competitive advantage.¬†

WhitepapersWhat Security Professionals Need to Know About Open Source Vulnerabilities

Download Whitepaper

We can help organizations:

  • Discover and track what specific open source components are in use within their applications
  • Identify security vulnerabilities reported against specific open source components
  • Assess which specific applications use components with known vulnerabilities

Customers of Black Duck also benefit from our continuous monitoring of the National Vulnerability Database. As soon as vulnerabilities are identified, customers automatically receive alerts pointing to problem components in their codebase.

We understand that if you can't identify what open source is in use within your applications, you won't know if and when you are vulnerable. The ability to quickly and easily identify where you are using an affected component is essential to your capacity to remediate and mitigate the vulnerability.

What To Do Next

Security researchers recommend that system administrators should run patches immediately. It’s particularly important to check frequently for updates, since the patches issued immediately after the bug was discovered later proved to be inadequate.  Updated patches for the Shellshock flaw in the Unix Bash shell are now available from Red Hat, Ubuntu, Fedora, and Debian. The Department of Homeland Security’s United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT) has updated its recommendations on remediation, as has the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s National Vulnerability Database.
