    Open-source software is becoming increasingly commonplace within organizations, bringing a different set of risks and perceived challenges compared to closed-source or proprietary software. An new Information Security Forum (ISF) report helps security professionals recognize the benefits and perceived challenges of using open-source software.

    “Deploying Open Source Software: Challenges and Rewards,” which the IFS calls a briefing document, focuses on setting up a program of protective measures to effectively manage OSS deployment.

    One of its goals is to detail the difference between the myths and the realities surrounding open source use. That understanding is critical to securing open source components in mixed code applications, according to ISF.
