Alpha-Omega is an associated project of the openSSF, established in February 2022, with a mission to protect society by improving the security of open source software through direct maintainer engagement and expert analysis, trying to build a world where critical open source projects are secure and that security vulnerabilities are found and fixed quickly.
INTRO TO THE ALPHA-OMEGA PROJECT
Organizations join Alpha-Omega because they want to take an active role in improving the security of open source software models.
Interested in joining? Reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Partnering with open source software project maintainers to systematically find new, as-yet-undiscovered vulnerabilities in open source code – and get them fixed – to improve global software supply chain security.
“Alpha” will work with the maintainers of the most critical open source projects to help them identify and fix security vulnerabilities, and improve their security posture.
“Omega” will identify at least 10,000 widely deployed OSS projects where it can apply automated security analysis, scoring, and remediation guidance to their open source maintainer communities.
