Liran Tal is a Developer Advocate @snyksec and is the author of Essential Node.js Security. He takes #opensource and protecting the #web very seriously.
Liran and I start by geeking out about BBS’s in the days of old. SYSOP page, anyone? Then we go into the state of open source security based on the report that Liran contributed heavily to and discuss many of the key takeaways from that report, including the developer response to open source security, security vulnerability rates in docker containers, and the length of time that vulnerabilities lie dormant in open source. We close out with the three things Liran would do to improve open source security if he could only do three things.
