When we depend on an open commons as our computing foundation, we need it to be secure, and the most effective way to do that is through open solutions.

Open source software is deeply embedded in enterprises today: from the Linux kernel to data center infrastructure, and from databases to application servers and front ends. The importance of securing the supply chain has become front and center in the industry, with the US government's involvement and the formation of industry bodies such as OpenSSF to work on solutions. 

We know that we must secure the open source software we use — it's also important that open source be an integral part of the solutions that we create. Proprietary solutions alone are not enough to counter the threat to the ever-expanding areas of vulnerability. To properly secure our software dependencies in depth, solutions must interoperate tightly with key open source infrastructure such as the Linux kernel and Kubernetes.
