The DBoM Consortium – Chris Blask – ESW #213
The DBoM consortium is a Linux Foundation project to be able to share information with third parties safely, securely, and with control over the information, even after handing it over! Unisys has just open sourced the code to make this possible, and Chris was a big part of their effort. Using a blockchain based approach, DBoM works to share software bill of materials (SBoM)s in a fashion that works in a cloud centric, internet time approach.
