How to Manage FOSS Compliance Information in an Ecosystem - Maohui Lei, Fujitsu
How to manage FOSS compliance information in an ecosystem (Lei Maohui, Fujitsu) - If you are interested in FOSS Licensing or Compliance Program, this presentation will be helpful. A specification named SPDX can make it easy to manage FOSS licensing compliance. This presentation will show how to manage SPDX files and source archives for Yocto Project users. With SPDX files, it is easier to make your working compliance under OpenChain that help you avoid compliance pitfalls. But the old Yocto+SPDX isn't in full compliance with SPDX specification. We have been maintaining a new layer called meta-spdxscanner to make spdx module more friendly; in addition, these created SPDX files can also be managed by dnf just like source packages.

This database is used to manage software component bill of materials, license files attached to OSS packages, license information and interpretations, project information and so on, making it easy for Hitachi to conform to some of the requirements of OpenChain specification. Hitachi joined OpenChain project as a Platinum Member in September 2017.

Utilizing the Blockchain to Establish Trust with the Open Source Used Across a Supply Chain - Mark Gisi, Wind River
The SPDX and OpenChain projects provide two critical pieces for solving the supply chain open source compliance puzzle. SPDX reduces the cost and friction around the collection and exchange of critical open source compliance information. OpenChain provides the means by which to establish trust of a specific supplier’s creation of open source compliance artifacts (source code, notices, SPDX data, …) for the their software offering. The missing puzzle piece is a way to manage accountability and providence tracking of the collection of compliance artifacts of manufactured products as they take form passing through the supply chain from conception to end user. We discuss how the Linux Foundation’s Hyperledger project is being used create a “Software Parts Ledger” to solve the puzzle and how the SPDX and OpenChain projects are highly complementary to that solution.
