Open Source Security

Leading organizations have effective open source software license compliance policies in place at each phase of the software development life cycle process.  Selecting the best, most secure code for your needs is essential, but with more than a million open source projects to choose from, that’s not fast or easy. Black Duck Hub, Protex and Code Center, built on the Black Duck KnowledgeBase, can help.

The KnowledgeBase is the world’s most comprehensive database of open source project information, continually gathering data from the vast ecosystem by tracking:

  • Over one million projects
  • From 8,500 sites
  • Over 2,400 unique software licenses

In conjunction with the KnowledgeBase, Black Duck Open Hub provides insight into and analysis of more than 660,000 projects. As a resource for finding and evaluating open source code, the Open Hub provides a critical link between more than 500,000 developers and the millions of organizations who utilize open source each day.
