Linux Foundation Partners with Open Source Group on Code Security Audits


To continue to grow the security and reputation of open source software by the businesses around the world, the Linux Foundation recently partnered with the Open Source Technology Improvement Fund (OSTIF) to fund more software security audits on a wide range of open source projects.

The strategic partnership, which will augment the Linux Foundation’s previous work in providing code security audits, enables OSTIF to share its related code-auditing resources through the Linux Foundation’s Community Bridge funding and support organization for developers and projects. OSTIF is a nonprofit group that works to connect open source security projects with needed funding and logistical support, while the Linux Foundation hosts a myriad of open source projects and encourages open source collaboration around the world.
