    The Linux Foundation recently announced that it has launched yet another consortium - this time with the aim of bringing some order to multiple previous efforts to address open source security. The Open Source Security Foundation (OpenSSF) will consolidate the efforts of the Core Infrastructure Initiative and the Open Source Security Coalition previously launched by GitHub.

     

    In addition, various security projects launched by other founding governing board members including, Google, IBM, JPMorgan Chase, Microsoft, NCC Group, OWASP Foundation, Red Hat and others will be incorporated.

    Chris Aniszczyk, vice president of strategic and developer programs for The Linux Foundation, said the OpenSSF will reduce duplicated efforts across all these initiatives by first centralizing management and then bringing respective teams together to work on related projects. Additional founding OpenSSF members include ElevenPaths, GitLab, HackerOne, Intel, Okta, Purdue, SAFECode, StackHawk, Trail of Bits, Uber and VMware.
