VEXing Open Source Security: Vulnerability Data for Everything - Andrew Martin, ControlPlane & Andres Vega

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
As CVEs proliferate and vulnerability scanners light up our open source projects, security teams are under increasing pressure that is pushed back onto maintainers, and we deserve better. And as we manage CVEs in our organisations is the quality of the data that we receive sufficient to manage the risk we are faced with every day? The machine-readable Vulnerability Exchange Format data standard may offer us a solution: defining the exploitability of vulnerabilities in the software and dependencies that we ship every day. Can we solve the high volume of false positives, halted releases, and late night? VEX may have the answer.
In this talk we:
- Question the efficacy of current vulnerability management approaches
- Compare the options available for enterprise vulnerability assessment
- Propose a solution to the global CVE deluge
- Suggest a contextual analysis framework for open source software security
- Attempt to enable a brighter future for the industry
