Announcing Docker Scout Software Supply Chain Solution for Open Source Projects

Recommended Posts

Docker Scout allows you to prevent and address flaws where they start. By identifying issues earlier in the software development lifecycle and displaying information in Docker Desktop and the command line, Docker Scout reduces interruptions and rework.

Supply chain security is a big focus in software development, with attention from enterprises and governments. Software is complex, and when security, reliability, and stability issues arise, they’re often the result of an upstream library. So developers don’t just need to address issues in the software they write but also in the software their software uses.

These concerns apply just as much to open source projects as proprietary software. But the focus on improving the software supply chain results in an unfunded mandate for open source developers. A research study by the Linux Foundation found that almost 25% of respondents said the cost of security gaps was “high” or “very high.” Most open source projects don’t have the budget to address these gaps. With Docker Scout, we can reduce the burden on open source projects.
