150 Million US Dollars To Secure Open Source Softwares
Amazon, Microsoft, Google, and others want to solve the IT security problem primarily with money. 30 million US dollars are already available. With the collaboration project of the Open Source Security Foundation (OpenSSF), big names in the IT industry want to standardize their security practices and thus better secure the open-source world. A ten-point plan presented by the OpenSSF for this purpose is to include funding of around 150 million US dollars over the next two years, as the organization announced.
