Title: An introduction to FASTEN and Quartermaster projects

Abstract: Software engineers reuse code to reduce development and maintenance costs but how safe is it to use open source software (OSS)? By using OSS and dependencies to external libraries they can introduce to projects significant operational and compliance risk as well as difficult to assess security implications. The aim of the FASTEN project (a European Union’s H2020 research and innovation programme led by TU Delft) is to address this situation, by ​developing an intelligent software package management system that will enhance robustness and security in software ecosystems. Our team in Endocode AG is part of the FASTEN project with our FOSS toolchain Quartermaster, which detects license compliance on softwares.
