NTIA to Host Meeting on Software Component Transparency – 4-15-20

Today the Department of Commerce’ National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) published a meeting notice the Federal Register (85 FR 15435-15436) concerning the “Multistakeholder Process on Promoting Software Component Transparency”. This will be a virtual meeting on April 15th, 2020 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm EDT.

NTIA acts as the host for the Multistakeholder process that is looking at the security issues related to the use of third-party components in software development. The process kicked off in July 2018. The “NTIA Software Component Transparency” web site provides a good overview of the multiple meetings that have been held since that date as well as a look at the ongoing activities of the various working groups.

According to today’s notice:

“The main objectives of the April 15, 2020, meeting are to share progress from the working groups; to give feedback on the ongoing work around technical challenges, tooling, demonstrations, and awareness and adoption; and to begin discussions around potential guidance or playbook documents.”

Details on how to participate in the virtual meeting will be published on the Software Component Transparency web site closer to the meeting date. The meeting will be open to the public on a first-com-first-serve basis.
