The Linux Foundation launched the Civil Infrastructure Platform (CIP) project to develop base layer, open source industrial-grade software for civil infrastructure projects, the CIP supports electrical and power grids, railway, shipping, and transportation systems, among other applications that are imperative to human life. Currently, there're several active workgroups in this project, such as Linux kernel, real-time, testing, security, and software update.
The obligations posed by the open source software are imperative to comply. Therefore, the OpenChain Project defines the key requirements of a quality open source compliance program, which provides a standard to build trust between companies in the supply chain while reducing internal resource costs.
In this presentation, SZ Lin will share the participation experiences and project status in CIP and OpenChain project accordingly.
SZ Lin currently works for Moxa in the Software Development Center, and his team helps develop industrial-grade Linux distribution to adapt in the various products, especially the industrial related systems. His research interests include embedded Linux, cybersecurity, and open source projects. Being a Debian developer, he mainly contributes and maintains open-source software in the security tools packaging team.
He is the technical steering committee member and the former chairperson of Linux kernel workgroup in the Linux foundation project - Civil Infrastructure Platform, and he is also the governing board member in the Linux foundation project - OpenChain to define the key requirements of a quality open source compliance program.
