NearForm Contributes Security Engineering Resources to Open Source Security Foundation (OpenSSF) Node.js Supply Chain Security Pilot Program
NearForm is proud to announce that it will be contributing security engineering resources to the OpenSSF Alpha-Omega Project, focussing on better supporting open source security standards and practices within Node.js.
By providing security engineering resources to this project, NearForm hopes to help relieve the pressure faced by Node.js project maintainers, some of whom work for NearForm.
As a company that was built on the belief that web technology and programming languages such as Node.js would enable us to solve real-world problems in the quickest manner possible, it is an honour for us to work on the Alpha-Omega project.
I am thrilled about this collaboration, not only as it continues to build the vibrant Open Source community and encourage further collaboration, but also because this new project will enable NearForm to double its Node core team. I can’t wait to see what the future of the Alpha-Omega project brings and the benefits that bolstering Open Source security standards will have on the wider digital ecosystem.
