About FASTEN project
The FASTEN project is developing an intelligent software package management system that will enhance robustness and security in software ecosystems. FASTEN addresses the operational and compliance risks associated to dependencies on networks of external open source software libraries. To solve these issues, FASTEN introduces a fine-grained, method-level, tracking of dependencies on top of existing dependency management networks. The project is developed by a consortium of seven partners and has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
