FOSSology: Efficient License Analysis (in HD!) - Michael Jaeger, Siemens AG

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Linux Foundation Collaboration Project FOSSology is an OSS framework and Web application mostly used to identify licenses and copyrights in OSS components. FOSSology involves different scan approaches and with a streamlined UI, it allows for efficient assessment of scanner findings. The output is a clarification of involved licenses in OSS components. The tutorial will show and explain: * How does the license situation of open source software look like? * What does FOSSology find actually? * How to generate results with FOSSology for SPDX and debian-copyright files? * How to do reuse of already analyzed components when scanning a newer version? * How can I handle new license statements? * HD? FOSSology enables identification of licenses at a high precision level - the tutorial explains the pitfalls of license statement interpretation and how to cover that.
