Experts including Dr. David Wheeler, Director of Open Source Software Supply Chain Security at the Linux Foundation, discuss the growing trend in software supply chain attacks which use “dependency or namespace confusion” techniques, and how to secure software supply chains against these attacks.

Following a growing trend in software supply chain attacks which use “dependency or namespace confusion” techniques, I sat down for a discussion on software supply chain security with a few experts on the topic.

  • Dr. David Wheeler, Director of Open Source Software Supply Chain Security at the Linux Foundation
  • Dr. Trey Herr, Director of Cyber Statecraft Initiative at the Atlantic Council
  • Brian Fox, CTO and Co-founder of Sonatype

As the attack vector continues to gain further steam in the early months of 2021, we chatted about what’s happening, why this vector has taken off and how organizations can protect ourselves.
