Screening of MAMA BEARS Documentary, a film by Daresha Kyi, and Q&A with Equality Texas, Transgender Education Network of Texas and local Mama Bears
We are proud to offer all attendees a special screening of MAMA BEARS, a film by Daresha Kyi.
MAMA BEARS is an intimate, thought-provoking exploration of the journeys taken by Sara Cunningham and Kimberly Shappley, two “mama bears”—conservative, Christian mothers whose profound love for their LGBTQ+ children has turned them into fierce advocates for the entire queer community—and Tammi Terrell Morris, a young African American lesbian whose struggle for self-acceptance perfectly exemplifies why the mama bears are so vitally important.

MAMA BEARS is the story of women who have allowed nearly every aspect of their lives to be completely reshaped by love. Although they may have grown up as fundamentalist Christians these two mama bears are willing to risk losing friends, family, and faith communities to keep their children safe—even if it challenges their belief systems and rips their worlds apart.

Light snacks will be provided. We will also be hosting a Q&A with several Mama Bears so you can hear about the experiences of their families directly. We will also welcome leaders from Equality Texas and the Transgender Education Network of Texas to hear what work is being done on the ground to support equality efforts in Texas.

Keynote: Interesting Times in Secure Open Source - Todd Moore, Vice President - Open Technology and Developer Advocacy, CTO DEG, IBM
We live in interesting times.  As industry and governments grapple with security and stability concerns, the dialogue across the globe has expanded to include our shared interests in open source. The thread of software and community that binds us and provides the basis for the world's computing infrastructure and applications is threatened. Together, through open source, we have forged a great boon to mankind, and together we must address the concerns of our user base and institutions. In this talk, we will not only discuss what steps we as a community must take to provide more secure code, but also about the cohesive message that we must take back to our governments and representatives to inform them of our needs and how we are responding to this challenge as a community.

OSPOCon Keynote: F5’s Open Source Journey - Christine Abernathy, F5, Inc.
F5, a multi-cloud application security and delivery company, recently created an OSPO to help set strategy and shepherd its participation in the open source ecosystem. This was initiated as part of a recent business transformation to expand F5’s software and cloud offerings. F5 has traditionally been open-source risk averse, and recent acquisitions that helped expand its portfolio have various degrees of maturity around open source consumption, contribution and production. This has created unique challenges and opportunities for F5’s fledgling OSPO. In this session, Christine will walk through F5’s OSPO journey as she shares the challenges they have faced. You’ll learn what they did to build out an open source strategy and hear how they answered some key questions along the way. Questions like, how do you get leadership buy-in and sponsorship? How should you guide those interested in open-sourcing and supporting a project? What policies should be in place around open source contributions? How can you put structures in place to ensure sustained open source participation? Can open source drive the cultural change you want to see? F5’s open source journey isn’t done but the hope is that this talk will provide guidance for you, wherever you may be in your OSPO journey.

How to Inject Faults into Common HTTP(S) Clients and Services - Chenxi Li, PingCAP
HTTP(S) is one of the most popular application protocols. Many well-known applications, such as Kubernetes and TiDB, heavily rely on the HTTP(s) protocol. However, HTTP connections might fail due to various faults, such as network aborts, long delays, or even man-in-the-middle attacks, causing services unavailable to users. In such cases, simulating HTTP faults with a chaos engineering tool can be extremely beneficial to ensure the robustness and resilience of the application, particularly distributed ones. In this talk, Chenxi Li will show how to implement the HTTPChaos, a chaos engineering mechanism that injects faults into common HTTP applications without any configurations. The theory and rust implementation of a transparent proxy, the hijack solution of HTTPS services on Kubernetes, and the plugins used to inject the message body as custom requirements will also be covered.

K8s in a Submarine: Optimizing Delivery for Some of the Hardest-to-reach Systems on Earth - Jeff McCoy, Defense Unicorns
In this talk, Jeff will walk through the problems faced by his team while delivering applications in K8s for the US Navy. There are many established patterns for creating clusters in air-gapped environments, so this talk will focus less on creating a cluster and more on the lifecycle for bringing software declaratively into K8s. Jeff will discuss operating an in-cluster registry, issues with HA, routing, DNS, TLS, and the Node/CRI relationship with in-cluster resources. He will also explain various methods they explored for "pushing" images into a cluster with no external registry and how various K8s distros deal with this problem. Additionally, Jeff will discuss how gitops-based deployments pose unique challenges and why they chose tools such as Gitea. Jeff will also discuss how tools such as Helm, Argo, Flux, and kubectl only address half of the problem by managing manifests and leaving the images they depend on unmanaged. He will explore ways to extract images from manifests, charts, kustomizations, and even operators in some cases. Finally, Jeff will discuss the need for predictably packaging all of these dependencies and some of the tools they evaluated for doing so before ultimately deciding to build the open-source tool, Zarf, in partnership with the US Navy.

"Did You Miss My Comment or What?": Understanding Toxicity in Open Source Discussions - Courtney Miller, Carnegie Mellon University
Toxicity in open source, in pull requests, discussions, and in-person interactions, is a frequently discussed problem. Exposure to toxic interactions causes stress, reduces motivation, and may trigger disengagement, especially impacting members of underrepresented identity groups. Despite increased awareness, toxicity in open source is not well understood. Toxicity in open source differs from toxicity on other platforms like Reddit and Wikipedia and existing detection tools and intervention strategies developed there are not effective. We need to understand community dynamics and toxicity in open source to design better ways of handling and avoiding it. We conducted research collecting and analyzing a sample of toxic interactions on GitHub. We found many forms of toxicity, including many demanding and entitled requests and how communities spend substantial effort in responding. We found that many toxic comments were authored by members of the project, usually in reaction to a user’s demand or affront. Locking issues and invoking a project’s code of conduct is often effective. In this talk, we provide a road map of toxicity open source communities with the aim of helping maintainers to better understand, address, and prevent open source toxicity.

AI/ML at the Extreme Edge with WebAssembly: A Path Forward - Michael Tanenbaum, Mycelial
In his seminal speech of 2017 entitled “The End of Cloud Computing,” Andreesen Horowitz Partner Peter Levine voiced what practitioners before and since have come to appreciate with ever increasing urgency: the amount of data produced by IoT devices (the extreme Edge) far outpaces the bandwidth available to centralize that data in Cloud Native data solutions. And how can we serve our AI/ML model from the Cloud when (not if) we lose connectivity? We need to inference at the Edge, but how? How can we deliver AI/ML on devices with tiny processing power? And how can we manage the Day 2 operations of these solutions, especially as we ask AI/ML to make critical decisions impacting human health and safety? Come learn why the properties of WebAssembly (WASM) present a uniquely perfect fit for the delivery of secure AI/ML at the extreme Edge. Michael will explore a case study on delivering a Tensorflow model compiled to WASM on a highly constrained device at scale, as well as the challenges therein — using a FOSS stack. Michael will conclude with the current state-of-the-art, fast-moving areas of R&D, and areas ripe for greater community involvement as we progress into a future soon at-hand; a future where AI/ML at the extreme Edge abounds, surrounds, and (sometimes) confounds.

Automating Airflow Backfills with Marquez - Willy Lulciuc, Astronomer
As a data engineer, backfilling data is an important part of your day-to-day work. But, backfilling interdependent DAGs is time-consuming and often associated with an unpleasant experience. For example, let's say you were tasked with backfilling a few months worth of data. You’re given the start and end date for the backfill that will be used to run an ad-hoc backfilling script that you have painstakingly crafted locally on your machine. As you sip your morning coffee, you kick off the backfilling script, hoping it’ll work, and think to yourself, there must be a better way. Yes, there is, and collecting DAG lineage metadata would be a great start! In this talk, Willy Lulciuc will briefly introduce you to how backfills are handled in Airflow, then discuss how DAG lineage metadata stored in Marquez can be used to automate backfilling DAGs with complex upstream and downstream dependencies.

A CNCF Landscape Pitch Meeting - Carson Anderson, Weave
The Cloud Native Computing Landscape is vast! Really, really vast! In fact, it's so big that it can be hard to even have heard of every project. Let alone know what each of them does. The sheer number of names and concepts can be overwhelming and make it hard to even know where to start.

As of right now, there are 16 Graduated and 28 Incubating projects in the CNCF. These are the projects that have either fully reached or nearly reached the high quality, transparency, and governance standards of the organization. In this session you will get a very short introduction nearly all of them! In this rapid fire presentation, Carson will cover every single Graduated level project and most of the Incubating projects as well

You may not get deep level of understanding of any one project. But you will get enough information to know which ones interest you the most and where you want to dig deeper.

Panel Discussion: How the Business Community is Working to Make the Open Source Software Supply Chain More Secure by Default - Jory Burson, Linux Foundation; Rao Lakkakula, JP Morgan Chase; Andrew Aitken, WiPro; Jeffrey Borek, IBM
While studies have shown that open source is not inherently more or less secure that proprietary software, the sheer volume of OSS code has created a systemic security challenge that companies of all kinds are stepping up to address. In the last year, the OpenSSF project has evolved to help harness and orchestrate these efforts. How are these companies getting involved? What kind of internal needs are they addressing, and how do they think about contributing back to the broader community? How does the OpenSSF governance structure support this? Please join us for this Governing Board Member panel discussion moderated by OpenSSF GM Brian Behlendorf to learn more about how these companies are working with the OpenSSF to advance the state of OSS security.

Key Lessons Learned from Building a Wealth Management Portal Using Cloud Native Architecture - Ankur Kumar, Publicis Sapient
This presentation shares the valuable lessons learned as part of the multi-year digital transformation journey for a large wealth management portal by applying cloud-native architecture. The journey started with a large decade-old monolith application with inflexible architecture, disintegrated user experience, vendor-dependent system architecture, higher time-to-market, and legacy technology stack. The vision was to build a modern & easy-to-use digital platform for advisors / financial professionals & their clients to collaborate better and transform the value chain. The key technology architecture principles were vendor-neutral cloud-native solution, open & standards-based integration architecture, microservices-oriented nimble architecture, and release on-demand-based deployment architecture. Additional capabilities required were quicker time-to-market, unified user experience, flexible and maintainable system architecture. Lessons learned are summarized as using Cloud-native technologies (Kubernetes, Docker, Rancher), applying Opensource solutions at a large scale (Elasticsearch, Redis, Drupal, PostgreSQL, enablement of continuous delivery using CI/CD patterns (using Jenkins, Helm), Building Microservices platform (applying Spring Boot, API-first architecture), and more.

How to Leverage an Open Update Protocol to Drive Your Embedded Devices from Any Cloud OTA Provider - Anibal Portero, Pantacor
Until now, vendors struggle to provide a comprehensive end-to-end solution addressing the software OTA requirements for the connected devices ecosystem. Instead of fostering innovation, the lack of an end-to-end solution has resulted in a number of projects that live in isolation and that only solve specific parts of the OTA deployment requirements. Solutions out there today are very good at solving one end of the story or another, but not both. By decoupling the device side and the cloud side of the problem, we can ensure that our understanding of both parts is not dictated by a preconceived notion of how the other end should be. By providing a comprehensive local control protocol through lightweight Linux containers, device manufacturers can reap the benefits of a tried-and-tested embedded firmware lifecycle management engine while using their OTA backend of choice. In this talk, we discuss how to implement an OTA system client container that communicates with your cloud-based update service of choice and how you can use this with any backend to control the software and firmware lifecycles of your embedded Linux devices with Pantavisor.

Ag-Rec: Modernizing A Century-old, Agriculture Recommendations Platform Through the Agstack Open-source Consortium - Gaurav Ramakrishna & Brandy S. Byrd, IBM
For more than a century, rural farmers and communities have relied on recommendations from cooperative extension services around the globe. For many, these recommendations are a trusted source of information that could mean the difference between a successful harvest or a meager one. Rural farmers have used manuals or printed PDF files to find recommendations for increasing crops, mitigating disease, and understanding pest management. In fact, farmers commonly ride their tractors in the fields, while studying recommendations that are published by the extension service in a printed manual. As members of the Agstack consortium, Call for Code, Clemson University, and community members collaborated to develop an open-source framework that uses real data, first contributed by the Clemson Cooperative Extension Service. The Ag-Rec framework consists of a Postgres database, which will enable cooperative extension services to upload their agriculture recommendation datasets. The framework has a user-friendly interface that extension services around the world can contribute to and use to access existing data. Come join this interactive session to learn about the architecture of the framework, the APIs that drive its function, and the technology roadmap for the next version of Ag-Rec.

Security as Code: A DevSecOps Approach - Joseph Katsioloudes, GitHub
Security as Code (SaC) is the methodology of codifying security tests, scans, and policies. Security is implemented directly into the CI/CD pipeline to automatically and continuously detect security vulnerabilities. Adopting SaC tightly couples application development with security and vulnerability management, while simultaneously enabling developers to focus on core features and functionality. More importantly, it improves the collaboration between Development and Security teams and helps nurture a culture of security across the organization. In this session, we will review lessons learned from DevOps to implement a successful DevSecOps culture, in particular how we can make developers contribute security checks with the SaC approach. We will introduce CodeQL, a language that allows us to implement security checks with code, and will demo how we can code queries for vulnerabilities and misconfigurations so they can be identified as soon as they hit your CI/CD pipeline.

Panel Discussion: A How-to Guide for Contributing to Open Source as an Employee - Alyssa P Wright, Bloomberg; Duane O’Brien, Indeed; Josep Prat, Aiven; Deb Nicholson, Python Software Foundation; Richard Littauer, Open Source Collective
Lots of material has been written about contributing to open source as an individual. But, when it comes to making contributions on behalf of an employer, not much material has been available. Until now! Members of the TODO Group have drafted a new guide for company technologists who want to make upstream contributions as ‘good corporate open source citizens.’ It describes the best practices for making these contributions on company time, while also offering direction on drawing boundaries between company time and personal time. This guide is an extension of a framework established as the Principles of Authentic Participation, which was developed by a SustainOSS Working Group in 2020 in order to provide a set of signposts for how organizations of all kinds can engage with the open source community, while avoiding common misbehaviors. This guide provides individuals with support and guidance when making contributions on company time. During this panel, the authors of the TODO guide – Bloomberg’s Alyssa Wright, Aiven’s Josep Prat, and Indeed’s Duane O’Brien – will share how it came to be, discuss why they decided to kick off this initiative, what challenges they faced while writing it, and why they chose these specific principles to guide open source contributions at work.

Addressing Cybersecurity Challenges in Open Source Software - Stephen Hendrick, The Linux Foundation & Matt Jarvis, Snyk
Organizations of all sizes are heavily reliant on software, and much of that software supply chain consists of open source software components. Because of this, open source software has cybersecurity implications: the software supply chain is an attractive entry point for people and organizations interested in theft, disruption, or exploitation for economic or political gain. Join Steve Hendrick (Linux Foundation) and Matt Jarvis (Snyk) as they discuss the latest OpenSSF cybersecurity research which describes where organizations are today in their cybersecurity journey and what can be done to improve the cybersecurity profile of open source software going forward.

Assessing the Risk of Open-source Components Using OpenSSF's Scorecard - Laurent Simon, Google & Naveen Srinivasan, Endor Labs
Open source demand continues to explode. Developers worldwide will request open-source packages, representing a 73% YoY growth in developer downloads of open source components. Yet, even though projects have their code open-source, the processes used to run, test, and maintain these are less known. For example, do you know if the log4j project has code reviews to reduce the likelihood of dangerous code being introduced in the codebase? How about the npm-color project? This lack of transparency makes it challenging for project consumers, including large companies, to assess the risk and make informed decisions about their use and maintenance of open-source components. In this talk, we will introduce a tool developed by the OpenSSF: Scorecards. Scorecards is an automated tool that assesses a number of important heuristics ("checks") associated with software security and assigns each check a score of 0-10. You can use these scores to understand specific areas to improve in order to strengthen the security posture of a project or a dependency. Since it's v4 release in January 2022, Scorecards has been installed on over 800 GitHub repositories as of March 2022, and is recommended by the GitHub documentation to harden workflows.

The Red Hat Asian Network (RHAN) is a newly created employee resource group (ERG) focusing on accelerating the advancement of Asian employees at Red Hat, building community, advocating for greater representation, championing equity, and celebrating diversity. A central part of RHAN's work focuses on partnerships with other DEI communities to further advocacy on behalf of Asian associates through intersectionality. Key partnerships have been built with groups like Blacks United in Leadership and Diversity (BUILD), Neurodiversity, Pride, and Diverse Abilities. I will share specific examples of intersectionality efforts and how this coalition-building helps further the DEI goals of individual communities as well as helps support company-wide DEI strategy and goals. We will walk through the challenges that intersectionality entails as well as the successes that make intersectionality a key part of DEI work. Among the largest projects that RHAN is involved with is a project with BUILD, which focused on collecting feedback and experiences of Black and Asian associates in collaboration with an external consultancy to provide actionable items to suggest to senior leadership.

An Open Source Exploration of a Semantic Structure for Climate Accounting - Dr. Christiaan Johannes Pauw, Nova Institute & Marcus Alex-Ivan Howard
As the world accelerates towards decarbonisation, the need for climate impact accounting at scale becomes more pressing. One of the greatest challenges in this regard is the description, comparison and aggregation of impact claims due to the multitude of existing accounting and reporting standards. The reconciliation and aggregation of these claims, in the interest of climate impact “bookkeeping” at a global scale, requires a common underlying semantic structure – which currently does not exist. The Standards Working Group (Standards WG) of the Hyperledger Climate Action and Accounting Special Interest Group (CA2-SIG) aims to lay out such a semantic structure. Working from the premise that agents engage in activities that impact environments, the WG is actively searching out standards to distill their semantic structures into an ontology that most adequately describes these elements and the relationships between them. The ontology is by design open source, collaborative, dynamic and technology agnostic. The presentation will provide an overview of the WG's work to date, introduce the latest version of the basic ontology, and demonstrate the ontology's application by means of an exemplary use case.

BoF: Where Did You Come From, Where Did You Go? CVD and Open Source Security Research - Dr. Trey Herr & Stewart Scott, Atlantic Council
Join the Atlantic Council’s Cyber Statecraft Initiative for an early discussion on its research into the interaction between CVD laws and the international security research community. Researchers across the world contribute invaluable vulnerability and bug discoveries to open source and proprietary code, but the impact of the various legal environments in which they operate is poorly documented and even less well understood by policymakers crafting related laws. To better inform law and policy with the voices of actual developers, maintainers, and researchers, the Cyber Statecraft Initiative aims to incorporate their feedback directly into ongoing work.

Note: Due to the level of discussion and interaction occurring during this BoF, it is not possible to deliver to a virtual audience and this session will be in-person only.

Discovering Toolchains in 2022 - Victor Rodriguez, Intel
Technology based on open source evolves every year with novel ideas that break paradigms. This evolution requires the reinvention of toolchains constantly. The performance and security of a SW project could be improved (or affected) by choosing the precise configuration in the compiler, linker, or binary tools available to developers. This presentation aims to show some of the new GNU toolchain features for 2022. Among those new features to discover is the enablement of vectorized half-precision floating-point format (FP16) instructions, heavily used in Deep Learning applications. New optimizations for memory transactions using wider vector registers and the enablement of DT_RELR for x86 platforms give the developers the tools to improve memory-bound applications as well as file size. At the same time, new enhancements on the integrated static analyzer give the developer the capability to detect security bugs easily. Having a better understanding of the toolchains allows developers to showcase the best of new platform architecture technology for users’ applications as well as boost the innovation and security of incoming projects.

Managing Your Serverless Servers, Again! - Amy Arambulo Negrette, DigitalOcean
Serverless is a rapidly evolving paradigm where once the one big product, now various providers have their own vision for what serverless should be and their products to support it including managed compute, databases, and other core services. Still, the heart of serverless architecture is using Functions as a Service to handle your logic needs. This is done by spinning up containers to run these functions on demand. For many use cases, this would be enough. Other times, you would need to manage small configurations such as time outs and memory. More often, a developer needs to use third-party libraries or a company built and maintained library. But, what else do you look out for once your function is ready to run into the wild? Be prepared to know how your tests, logs, and other necessities live. This talk will go over the current FaaS, how to use functions for your particular use case, how to find the limits of your function, and what to do once they've gone to prod. Originally presented at ServerlessConf 2019, this talk will focus less on provider specific use cases, and more how to manage the cloud function itself beyond a 'hello, world,' scenario.

Lessons Learned from Automating SLSA-Compliance Evaluation - Daniel Nebenzahl, Scribe-security
SLSA (Supply-chain Levels for Software Artifacts) is a framework led by Google, that defines four levels of protection for a software supply chain, and provides guidelines on how to reach these levels. Since companies operate dynamic pipelines, there is a need to continuously measure the pipeline's security. This can be met by implementing automated SLSA-compliance evaluation. In this talk , we shall share lessons learned from our journey in implementing automation in real-world scenarios using open-source tools such as Sigstore and OPA. The lessons, conceptual and technical, shed light on the real-world details and challenges we encountered when evaluating, and automating the evaluation of SLSA compliance. Some of these lessons challenge part of SLSA requirements.

Uncovering Software Provenance in Embedded Systems - Ricardo Mendoza, Pantacor
With IoT, 5G, and embedded devices becoming a big part of everyone’s daily lives, security should be on everyone’s minds. Security and more importantly trust in our embedded devices are essential for many reasons. Embedded devices have not always had good security with the last several years seeing a significant number of high-profile hacks that could prevent people from widely adopting IoT in their homes. The federal government also signed an executive order signed last year that requires companies selling connected devices must include a SBoM. But SBoMs are only a small part of the story around keeping embedded devices secure and from a developer and operator point of view, the more important issue is knowing that what you are running and deploying are from trusted sources. In this talk, we’ll discuss the security requirements for embedded Linux devices, with a focus on origin determination and how this can (or cannot) be achieved with the existing tools and practices. We’ll then go through a use case to show how all components of an embedded device can be signed, attested and verified with the help of Pantavisor Linux’s “revisions” and then drill down on code signing, and revoking (if necessary) the provenance of malicious and unsigned code on embedded Linux systems.

From Linux CFS Scheduler to Goroutine Scheduler: How CFS Algorithm Could Be Used in Goroutine Scheduling - Sen Han, PingCAP
An increasing number of developers are using Golang to develop network services. However, Golang’s simplicity can sometimes be a disadvantage. The scheduling algorithm of the goroutine scheduler is simply a round-robin, and its mechanism is far from complete when compared to the kernel thread scheduler. The lack of priority and fairness mechanisms makes it extremely difficult for golang applications to ensure latency quality and QoS control of critical services under high CPU usage. In this talk, Sen Han will demonstrate CPU-Worker and explain how to make goroutine a fully functional scheduler, similar to the kernel CFS scheduler. This talk will also go over the evolution of the Linux kernel scheduler, with a focus on the details of the CFS algorithm implemented by the current kernel scheduler. The goroutine scheduler of Golang will be used as an example to show the importance of a well-designed scheduler.

Sponsored Session: Securing your Cloud Native Stack with Policy-as-Code and OPA - Peter ONeill, Styra
Cloud Native stacks grow ever more complicated and heterogeneous every year. In order to keep our stack secure, we either need to stay up to date on every tool we might possibly use, or introduce a policy tool designed for Cloud Native. Policy-as-Code uses the latest best practices to help you create policies that are easy to understand, centralized in your organization, and shared with all stakeholders.

Open Policy Agent (OPA) is an open source, general-purpose policy engine designed to decouple policy enforcement from your application and infrastructure. OPA comes paired with a full-featured programing language that is purpose-built for policy creation called Rego. Rego allows you to declaratively state the intent of your security policies using human-readable expressions. It comes equipped with over 150 built-in functions to handle many common data types you want to use. Together OPA and Rego allow you to supercharge your Policy-as-Code workflow in a Cloud Native way.

Join this talk to gain a general understanding of what Policy-as-Code is, how it will work with your Cloud Native stack, and why OPA and Rego are the best choices for the job.

The Challenge to Build a Distributed OSPO - Norio Kobota, Sony Group Corporation
Many companies are establishing OSPOs as the core of their OSS activities in order to accelerate the favorable relationship with open source community. But at the same time many companies are facing a shortage of OSPO personnel. Solving issues surrounding OSS as a member of an OSPO requires not only a good understanding of the open source community and knowledge of software technology, but also legal knowledge such as open-source software licenses, knowledge of intellectual property such as patents and trademarks, and knowledge specific to each business unit in order to cooperate with security departments, etc. Sony has chosen to build a "DISTRIBUTED OSPO" to resolve OSS issues closer to the engineering teams; independent OSPOs are created within the business units, supported by the central OSPO. The members of the distributed OSPOs need training from the central OSPO. There are already many programs to learn legal and intellectual property knowledge for engineers and business managers. However, there are not many training programs that enable OSPO members to learn what to do when they are actually consulted about OSS issues. In this session, we introduce Sony's efforts and knowledge gained in order to develop individuals to solve issues as members of the distributed OSPO.

Maslow's Hierarchy of Supply Chain Needs - Josh Bressers, Anchore
Lately everyone is talking about software supply chain security. There are many different angles and messages along with an abundance of concepts and acronyms to absorb: SBOM, SLSA, SSDF, vulnerability management, Sigstore, and reproducibility to name a few. It’s hard to know which tasks are most important when starting on a supply chain security journey. What if we discussed supply chain security in the context of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs? Just like Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs teaches us, there are certain needs that must be met first. The needs at the bottom are less complex than the needs at the top. The software supply chain is no different. When we work to incorporate supply chain security into our organizations and projects the approach needs to be incremental change, there is no way we can do everything at once. Every organization is different and trying to decide what to do first can be a paralyzing decision. This session will present a new way to think about supply chain security that turns what appears to be an insurmountable challenge into clear steps. Attendees will learn how to simplify and prioritize supply chain security. Armed with that knowledge, attendees can create an action plan to make complex decisions around supply chain management.

Road to SLSA3: Non-falsifiable Provenance in Tekton with SPIFFE/SPIRE - Parth Patel, IBM & Brandon Lum, Google
Tekton, a cloud native solution for building CI/CD systems, has made great strides in achieving SLSA Level 1 (​​unsigned provenance) and 2 (hosted source/build, signed provenance) with the inclusion of Tekton Chains. Part of attaining higher SLSA levels include protecting and holding the build systems we use accountable. A requirement of SLSA level 3 is non-falsifiable provenance, which states that build system provenance should not be falsifiable by build service’s users - i.e. protecting against cluster administrators. With the integration SPIFFE/SPIRE, Tekton can achieve this capability. SPIFFE/SPIRE provides Tekton with short-lived certificates (backed by workload attestation), that are used to sign build results and status updates (through the TaskRun object). This results in the ability to provide and verify provenance of the build steps, ensuring that they are cryptographically protected against edits not performed by the Tekton Trusted Computing Base (TCB). In this presentation we will show this in action and sabotage our own pipelines to visualize non-falsifiable provenance.

Adding OpenTelemetry to Production Apps: Lessons Learned - Dave McAllister, NGINX
Observability is increasingly important in our modern apps/cloud-native world. However, when adding observability to existing production apps, there are a number of tradeoffs in approaches and in tools. Often, these tradeoffs are an exercise in confusion, leading to decision paralysis. We took on the challenge of adding observability to NGINX MARA, investigating choices, discovering and addressing challenges while keeping to open source solutions whenever possible. You'll come away with an understanding of how the three classes of data (Metrics, Traces, Logs) work together, why we chose the solutions we used and how we extended past the normal space into health checks, introspection and core dumps. Come learn from our experience in dealing with OpenTelemetry and related tools, from traces, metrics and logs, in working with production class apps and discover what approach finally worked for us.

Throw Away Your Passwords: Trusting Workload Identity - Andrew Martin, ControlPlane
Trust is required to secure our systems: we need it to bootstrap infrastructure, to run workloads, and to reassure our customers of their privacy. But how do we establish and secure this "trust" in a dynamic cloud native system?

Historically we relied upon identifiers such as IP addresses, passwords, and certificates, but can we do better than these antiquated authentication mechanisms? In this talk we:

- Introduce workload identity concepts with real-world demos and walkthroughs
- Strive for a world in which passwords and static keys are replaced by dynamic credentials and hardware roots of trust
- Solve the "bottom turtle" trust bootstrap quandary
- Appraise the open source implementations and technologies available to you
- Demonstrate the bootstrap, compromise, and remediation of a Kubernetes cluster using workload identity integrations

Secure Containers Deployments: Time for Refresh - Ariel Shuper, Cisco
Containers deployments contains many security-sensitive attributes (e.g. privileges, OS capabilities, filesystem access rights etc.). The default settings are quite flexible which is great for smooth deployments experience but quite challenging on the security perspective, since they provide high privileges and wide access to the OS (which enlarger the threat landscape in case of a security event). There're few mechanism, popular in Kubernetes environments to control and manage these settings. Pod Security Policies were the first mechanism that was used for this purpose and it recently was replaced by a new mechanism called Pod Security Standards that changed completely the usage model. The introduction of a new method for containers' security context is also an opportunity to rethink the overall model and suggest additional enhancements options. In this talk, I'll address few topics that should be considered with the new security model, like the usage of validating admission webhook and mutating admission webhook (the benefits and drawbacks of each option), the usage of policy-as-code options comparing OPA/Gatekeeper vs. Kyverno policy engines or just a Terraform based policies( I'll also review the available rules libraries in open source) and a GitOps deployment model

Sponsored Session: Automating the IoT with BPMN - David G. Simmons, Camunda
BPMN is often seen as boring ‘Business Speak’. In reality, it is just a way to automate things, and since it’s called the Internet of Things why not automate those things too! With an estimated 75% of IoT deployments failing to deliver on their promises (and 30% dying in the proof of concept phase) it’s clearly time to approach IoT deployments differently. It’s time to design, implement, build and deploy IoT projects from a business perspective rather than a technical standpoint.

In this talk I’ll go through a complete IoT solution in 3 iterations to show how Business Process Management platforms can quickly iterate on an IoT solution to deliver maximum benefit. Enough business-speak! I’m going to build a Skittles (candy) dispenser based on IoT and controlled by BPMN, with a little AI thrown in! I’ll run the entire demo live, so if the prospect of watching a demo fail in front of a live audience is what gets you excited, this talk is for you! It’s also for you if you’re struggling to build a business case for your IoT project.

Real-Time Analytics: Going Beyond Stream Processing with Apache Pinot - Rong Rong & Karin Wolok, StarTree
Apache Kafka forms the backbone of the modern data pipeline and its stream processing capabilities provide insights on events as they arrive, but what if we want to go further than this and execute analytical queries on this real-time data. The OLAP databases used for analytical workloads traditionally executed queries on yesterday's data with query latency in the 10s of seconds. The emergence of real-time analytics has changed all this and the expectation is that we should now be able to run thousand of queries per second on fresh data with query latencies typically seen on OLTP databases. This is where Apache Pinot comes into the picture. Apache Pinot is a realtime distributed OLAP datastore, which is used to deliver scalable real time analytics with low latency. It can ingest data from streaming sources like Kafka, as well as from batch data sources (S3, HDFS, Azure Data Lake, Google Cloud Storage), and provides a layer of indexing techniques that can be used to maximize the performance of queries. Come to this talk to learn how you can add real-time analytics capability to your data pipeline.

GitHub's Data Story: Open Source at the Home for Open Source - Natalie D'Adamio & Ashley Wolf, GitHub, Inc.
In 2021, GitHub formally established its own Open Source Program Office (OSPO). One of the first challenges we faced was creating data-driven metrics around GitHub’s participation in open source. With the goal of researching and developing products and services that help the open source community be successful, we sought out to make this easier for us and for the community. We present the results of an extensive analysis of GitHub’s dataset of millions of open source projects. Using GitHub’s own organization as an example, we propose a quantitative framework for how OSPOs can understand the three main verticals of their open source ecosystem: consumption of open source, contribution to open source, and publication of open source. We highlight how organizations can use this framework to derive data-driven recommendations for improving their relationship with open source. And how GitHub leveraged these metrics to establish a data-driven OSPO.

Authenticating Supply-chain Metadata: Building Remote Code Attestations on GitHub - Asra Ali & Laurent Simon, Google
Remote code attestation is a security property that allows one party (the prover) to prove to another (the verifier) that a piece of code was run, and that the results produced by the run are genuine and have not been tampered with. By attending this talk, attendees will learn how to leverage new GitHub features to add integrity protection to the results of their workflows, enabling software consumers to make risk-based decisions based on authenticated supply chain metadata. This new technique takes advantage of two newly added GitHub features, reusable workflows and OpenID Connect (OIDC), to achieve software-based attestations. We will demonstrate this technique with real-world applications, including: 1. Binary or package integrity: Ensuring no backdoors are inserted at compile time by an attestation of source and build process for integrity. 2. Data integrity: Verifying that OpenSSF's Scorecard data created via the Scorecard's GitHub action can be safely consumed by the community. 3. Authenticated requests: Ensuring integrity of GitHub's new Dependencies API, which lets developers upload their own dependency snapshot to improve the built-in GitHub's dependency graph feature.

GitBOM: Repurposing Git’s Graph for Supply Chain Security & Transparency - Aeva Black, Microsoft & Ed Warnicke, Cisco Systems
What if we could know the complete and reproducible artifact tree for every binary executable, shared object, container, &etc – including all its dependencies – and you could efficiently cross-reference that against a database of known vulnerabilities *before* you deploy? If you had had that information, could you have remediated Log4Shell faster? Might it even help open source maintainers identify at-risk dependencies sooner? If you're thinking, "this sounds too good to be true - what's it going to cost?", then we really hope you’ll join us because we believe this should be an automatic part of open source build tools. In this talk, Aeva and Ed will share why they're so excited about GitBOM and explain what it is (hint: it's not git and it's not an SBOM). If the demo gods are willing, they will show you how you can generate a GitBOM with a simple command-line tool, and explain why you won't have to. Finally, if you want to add support for GitBOM to your favorite tool or language, this talk will give you enough information to get started.

Scale Kubernetes to Manage 60K Nodes Through Architectural Extension - Ying Huang & Ying Xiong, Futurewei Technologies
With the increasing adoption of Kubernetes in public and private clouds, large enterprises are looking for solutions that scale a single cluster to tens of thousands of nodes, primarily for simplified operations. In this talk, they will present a mechanism that extends Kubernetes architecture to manage a cluster of 60K nodes. This architectural extension shards Kubernetes cluster into two partitions. One partition, called Tenant Partition, manages customer related objects such as deployments, pods, services, endpoints, etc. The other partition, called Resource Partition, manages non-customer objects such as nodes. They will also present and analyze the performance test results, compare the solution with Kubernetes community version in multiple dimensions. Future works that extend the architecture to manage even larger Kubernetes clusters will also be discussed.

Sustainability the Container Native Way - Huamin Chen, Red Hat & Chen Wang, IBM
Do you want to help combat climate change? Are you concerned with the electricity cost of your Kubernetes clusters? Then join our efforts to manage energy efficiency on Kubernetes clusters. Currently, the energy consumption metrics are only available at node levels. There is no way to obtain container-level energy consumption. Autoscalers and schedulers really need pod-level metrics data in order to obtain energy savings from resizing or migrating containers. We present Kubernetes-based Efficient Power Level Exporter (Kepler) and its integration with Kubernetes. By leveraging eBPF programs, Kepler probes per container energy consumption related system counters and exports them as metrics. These metrics help end users observe their containers’ energy consumption and allow cluster admins to make intelligent decisions on achieving energy conservation goals. We demonstrate that the Kepler can be easily integrated into Prometheus and the existing dashboard.

Level-Up Embedded Development with WebAssembly - Gerred Dillion, Mycelial
The environment of modern embedded development is the richest it has ever been - there is a massive ecosystem of hardware, tools, and software for creating devices that bring unprecedented computing power everywhere. With this rise, growing pains are becoming evident in this industry. Creators need more hardware than ever, but face shortages throughout the supply chain, making reliance on particular sensors, ICs, and system-on-chips brittle for businesses. Teams need more embedded software than ever, but struggle to find the software developer expertise they need to create products that span from embedded development to backend services.

Enter WebAssembly. Originally created for near-native performance in the browser, WebAssembly creates a fixed point between languages that compile to it and runtimes - from browsers to embedded systems - that run it. This talk will introduce the post-browser WebAssembly ecosystem, benefits of WebAssembly to embedded products, present an application running the same code on different hardware, and discuss ongoing open source efforts in the WebAssembly space to make embedded software more accessible and solve tight coupling between hardware and software - all within 64MHz of CPU, 128KB of RAM, and 512KB of flash.

Democratizing Deep Learning at Scale with Horovod - Nicolas Castet, Nvidia & Travis Addair, Predibase
Deep learning is pushing the limits of what AI can do: from natural language processing to computer vision and autonomous vehicles. Scaling deep learning to multiple GPUs and multiple machines has become critical to reduce training time and solve ever bigger problems. Horovod is a popular open source framework to distribute and scale the training of TensorFlow, PyTorch, and MXNet models. On the verge of the Horovod's v1.0 release, we look back at Horovod's journey and the lessons learned putting deep learning training in production; from its open source debut in 2017, to its presence in every DL ecosystem since joining the Linux Foundation. We will explain the motivations and key innovations that fueled the development of Horovod and achieved new records in deep learning performance benchmarks. Finally, we'll walk through practical examples to demonstrate how you can scale your models to train on hundreds of GPUs with Horovod, and explain how Horovod fits into production ML workflows running on diverse platforms such as Kubernetes, Spark, Ray, and Slurm.

What Makes A Build Reproducible? - Rose Judge & Joshua Lock, VMware
Truly reproducible builds are an essential part of securing the software supply chain. They ensure that software vendors know exactly what’s being shipped and can quickly pinpoint vulnerable components and remediate fixes in light of a vulnerability or exploit. For open source projects, they allow our users to verify that the built artifacts match the source code in the repository. Reproducible builds also enable software vendors to confidently ship code without having to assess and verify third party dependency build process trustworthiness. The term “reproducible builds”, however, is overloaded with definitions and expectations for behavior. So what exactly makes a build reproducible? There’s at least three ways to define it: 1) Deterministic build process; 2) Artifacts that can be recreated; and 3) Binary, or bit-for-bit, reproducible. For each of these common definitions of “reproducible build” this talk will propose an alternative term and explore the supply chain security implications of the definition. We hope this talk will motivate audience members to work towards reproducible builds but at least should help understand why reproducible builds matter.

Beyond the Monkeys: Chaos Engineering on the Cloud - Bella Wiseman & Sindhuja Durai, Goldman Sachs
Well-maintained applications have thorough unit tests, integration tests and performance tests. Despite this coverage, production incidents still occur due to infrastructure failures, network faults, or unexpected traffic patterns. These failures cannot be covered with traditional test suites. In this session, we will share how we adopted the open source Chaos Toolkit to test the resilience of an application on AWS.  We will discuss design decisions on entitlements, project structure, and cloud architecture that we consider when building out a chaos test suite.

Server-side Wasm Applications: Replacing Docker with WASI - Colin Murphy, Adobe
Adobe makes use of Wasm in its flagship web browser-based products including Photoshop, Lightroom, and Acrobat. This past year it has explored potential use cases for Wasm in the datacenter with wasmCloud. Of particular interest were the potential performance, cost, security, and compliance benefits. Wasm and WASI have many potential advantages over Docker and standard web frameworks in these areas, but what needs to be done to realize those benefits at Adobe? This presentation begins with a summary of Adobe's current use cases for Kubernetes, including areas in which server-side Wasm could offer significant benefits. It then proceeds to an exploration of Wasm/WASI platforms, compelling features of the technology for Adobe, and a demonstration of proofs of concept. It concludes with future looking platform requirements and how Adobe expects to take advantage of this technology at scale moving forward.

Keeping Your Open Source Community Accessible to All - Treva Williams, Open Infrastructure Foundation
As community builders & maintainers, it is our job to attract & retain highly engaged, passionate contributors, but sometimes in our haste to drive up engagement we overlook small details that can have a huge negative impact on participation, such as overly technical descriptions of projects, incomplete or out-of-date documentation, or lack of accommodation for the differently abled. So how do we make sure that our projects are truly “open” to all who wish to participate? Incorporating small changes into workflows such as creating glossaries, mentorship programs or just setting up an auto-responder can make all the difference in the world when it comes to building & maintaining an active community. Join this presentation to hear how the first-hand experiences of a tailor-turned-Dev Advocate now managing communities of their own has shaped their method for Developer Relations, & how these methods can be incorporated into your projects to attract & retain diverse, active contributors.

Powering Observability with Simple, Sharable, EBPF Programs - Lin Sun, solo.io
Have you tried to create and run your own eBPF programs? There are many popular frameworks out there for this exact purpose, and yet they still feel very complex. All of these frameworks require writing both user space, and kernel code. In this talk, we will present an innovative method to enable you to easily create, run, and share your eBPF programs without writing any user-space code. We will use the new open source bumblebee project (in the process of being donated to CNCF) to harness Linux Kernel’s observability data. With live-coding, we will explore what is happening to give you an understanding of how it works to write and run your eBPF program without writing your own user-space code with bumblebee.

Krepair: Automatically Repairing .config Files to Cover Patches - Paul Gazzillo & Necip Yildiran, University of Central Florida
The kernel receives thousands of patches per month, with recent major releases containing well over ten thousand. Testing a patch means first building the affected source code. But using an arbitrary configuration file provides no guarantee of build coverage. defconfig only builds around 15% of the patches contained in v5.13. allyesconfig provides high coverage, but incurs higher build times (three hours for allyesconfig vs. 20 minutes for defconfig on a commodity desktop). Moreover, allyesconfig kernels are less suited for run-time testing due to their size, and they preclude combinatorial configuration testing, e.g., with randconfig. The speakers' approach, krepair, automatically repairs a configuration file to ensure high patch coverage while retaining most settings from the original configuration file. This allows testers to build the patch without sacrificing tests for a variety of hardware and software configurations. Our evaluation on thousands of real patches shows that krepair finds repairs to allnoconfig and defconfig that change only a couple hundred options on average, achieving patch coverage comparable to allyesconfig which, in contrast, requires enabling over ten thousand additional options. The talk will also demonstrate using the free and open-source tool.

ETL - Extract Trino Load - A Case for Trino as a Batch Processing Engine - Andrii Rosa, Starburst Data
Trino is a relatively new name in the open source space that was formerly known as the PrestoSQL. Trino is very well known for fast adhoc and exploratory workloads on data lakes and heterogeneous data sources. When you want to provide your data scientists with the ability to query across your data landscape by joining live operational data with historical data, Trino is the state-of-the-art. Trino and Presto were initially built to replace Hive workloads at Facebook and handled massive petabyte-scale batch workloads. Yet across the board, Trino was not being widely adopted as a batch ETL engine to solve these workloads. As it turns out, one of the features that drive Trino's incredible speed was forgoing failure recovery measures to buy faster queries. In practice, many desire the opportunity to have the system running the query to facilitate the recovery from failures. The Trino community has banded around supporting native granular failure recovery to improve resiliency in the event of a failure. This brings Trino to a new frontier by enabling both exploratory and failure recovery for long-running workloads so that engineers and analysts do not have to shift between systems to run their queries.

Panel Discussion: A Decade of Open Source in China - Insights Report with Chinese OSPO's Best Practices - Xiaoya Xia & Wei Wang; ECNU; Richard Sikang Bian, Ant Group; Rong Wang, Alibaba Group
Open-source development and the overall OSS ecosystem in China have enjoyed rapid growth in the past 10 years. We observed high-quality, fast-growing repositories as well as the explosive increase of total active developers. The total number of Chinese developers on GitHub has been ranked 2nd globally. Among all the players, contributions from the big companies are not to be ignored. Those companies have experienced growing pain and they gradually realized the importance of having an Open Source Program Office (OSPO). OSPO is not only a governance entity to ensure compliance and safety of OSS, but also a strategic initiative that could lead to competitive advantages. This speech is based on GitHub open-source data metrics and analysis. The findings cover both macro and micro perspectives, presenting a global trend of the overall OSS development. Moreover, the study shares first-hand experiences of how Chinese enterprises (such as Alibaba) pragmatically participate in building OSS communities. The speech also shares Alibaba OSPO and Ant Group OSPO’s best practices of spearheading OSS strategy, governance, and community management. We hope more companies would see the irreplaceable benefits of OSPO in healthy and sustainable open source development.

Dear Security, Compliance, and Auditors, We’re Sorry. Love, DevOps. - Bill Bensing, Red Hat
Stop it with the DevSecAuditComplianceOps buzzwords within the software supply chain. Let’s simply talk about Modern Governance. Great software supply chain hygiene requires governance. Governance stinks because we do it wrong. I promise to give you the means to go from commit to production with 100% no-human-hands. All while meeting visibility, security, compliance, and audit requirements without fail. Modern Governance applies to standard line-of-business software, machine learning, edge, IoT, and any other software artifact. DevOps solved the Developer and Operators conflict. It forgot other essential folks of the delivery lifecycle: Security, Compliance, and Audit. It's also missing the newest entrant, Software Supply Chain Management. We will talk about Modern Governance. Modern Governance resolves governance toil with a software engineering approach. It is no different than applying Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) principles & practices to the dull, mundane, and toil-ridden governance processes.

Tutorial: Cloud Native Building Blocks: An Interactive Envoy Proxy Workshop - Jim Barton & Adam Sayah, solo.io
Envoy Proxy is a foundational layer for many of the innovations propelling the Kubernetes community, including service meshes and cloud-native API gateways. But many engineers understand it only as a black-box, hidden by simplifying levels of abstraction. The purpose of this workshop is to provide a hands-on workshop that will bridge those gaps in Envoy understanding. Participants will explore first principles regarding Envoy architecture, filter chains, and a day-in-the-life of a request. Users will then put those principles to work interactively. Every participant will have access to a computing environment via their web browsers to a Kubernetes K3s platform provisioned with Envoy and supporting tools. From there, users will explore the life of a request through a maze of transforms, custom processing with WebAssembly, and request routing. They will further learn to employ standard Envoy tools like metrics, access logging, and the Tap filter to solve real-world problems.

Cloud Native My Camel: from Low Code to Pro Code, inject Serverless and Cloud Native Goodness Into Your App Dev with Apache Camel - Michael Costello, Red Hat
With the rise of cloud native architectures, cloud services, and increasing needs for rapid application development the need for integration has become front and center in our race to the cloud. Apache Camel 3 in combination with its Kubernetes native accompaniment integration platform as a service Camel-K presents a low code to pro code vision of this integration layer in our cloud native architectures by exploiting underlying cloud native Kubernetes capabilities. Featuring low code cloud connectors (via Apache Camel Kamelets), serverless capabilities via Knative, native Service Mesh integration, as well as standard IPaas capabilities such as a cloud native build system, governance capabilities, and a polyglot Apache Camel DSL, Camel-K presents a cloud native integration platform as a service that ensures our race to the cloud doesn't turn into a series of native to that cloud deployments but the cloud native goodness that enables our enterprises. All that with a revamped, and expanded set of Apache Camel 3 components that allows pro-code cloud native application deployments to deliver best in class service integration. In this talk, we'll demonstrate these capabilities, discuss cloud native architectures, and discuss emerging needs of our cloud native deployments.

Your Own Little HA Cloud at the Edge (or at Home) - Stephane Graber, Canonical Ltd.
Who wouldn't want to own their own little cloud, running only their own instances on their own hardware, yet still benefiting from a highly available environment including distributed storage and networking. This is what we'll be exploring in this talk, combining LXD as a self-hosted mini-cloud with CEPH for storage and OVN for network. That combination allows for a fully redundant deployment on as little as 3 machines and can run hundreds or thousands of containers or virtual machines, be managed from anywhere and run just about any workload you can think of (GPU and all included). Whether you want something like this as a homelab running on some Raspberry Pis or running it in a co-location facility with a few small servers or deploying it at the edge, you always get the same thing, something which feels like a cloud but that you fully own and can easily reshape to your liking. This talk will start by going over what LXD, CEPH and OVN are, how they can work together to provide a highly available deployment on as little as 3 machines and then will go over how to actually deploy this in just a few minutes on low cost hardware.

Remote Doesn’t Mean Distant - Managing Teams Effectively from Different Geographies - David Bevan, Collabora
Dave Bevan manages 29 people Across 13 different countries Across 7 different time zones. Dave also only speaks one language. I guess we should wish him luck. Yet within his first 6 months at Collabora, feedback he is receiving includes being the best manager these 29 people have ever had. This is a man, supporting software engineers with no idea of the difference between pipewire and pipecleaner and who thought mixing wine and a computer together was a bad idea and only knew of the wine that could be drunk from the glass or the bottle. Dave will talk about forming relationships quickly with people in a remote environment and share strategies and encourage discussion on how you can do this as well. Dave will talk about initiatives he has introduced not only to help him connect with people remotely but also to encourage and build a sense of team and belonging within his team of engineer’s. It’s not about technical expertise, its not about being fluent in a specific language, and as much as it pains Dave to admit, its not even about wine (although if you see him at the bar feel free to buy him a class), it’s about genuinely being interested and genuinely caring in people. As a leader within the community, Dave hopes you care enough to come and join the conversation.

Containers Security Layers and How Not to Break them - Aviv Sasson, Palo Alto Networks
Containers are glorified by the fact that no one can escape them, and frankly - escaping containers is a tricky and complex task that is impossible in most scenarios. Many security layers restrict the container in order to prevent an escape. But what are those layers? How do they work? What are their defaults? Can we modify them? Should we? This session will present the Linux kernel features and mechanisms that make up those layers, including Capabilities, Seccomp, SELinux, and AppArmor. It will discuss how container runtimes implement them to create a security stack that keeps the container tamed and whether if it is possible to modify them for specific use cases while explaining the security risks of such actions.

Shhh - Stop Sharing Secrets, a Secure Mindset for Embedded Development - Andy Doan & Ricardo Salveti, Foundries.io
I recently posted a support question to a major cloud provider to see how my embedded devices could securely connect with their private container registry. The answer - create a file with a username/password on each device. We can do better. We deserve better. Security for embedded products is complicated. There are multiple layers and dimensions so that "security" can't be turned into a simple one paragraph answer. However, if we step back to some first principles, we can create a mindset and approach for building secure embedded products. This talk will cover ways to secure an embedded device. Hardware Security Modules(HSMs) and what they can do secure communication to the cloud will play a staring role. Topics like x509 PKI basics and ECIES encryption for securing data on devices will be covered as well. In the end, you'll be armed with some tricks to make your embedded product a little more secure.

Lightning Fast Java Application Startup Using Checkpoint/Restore with Eclipse OpenJ9 - Thomas Watson, IBM
In serverless environments it is desirable to have applications that can startup very quickly. Very fast startup can enable scale to zero when deploying applications to Kubernetes with technologies like Knative. Many popular Java frameworks have looked to using native compilation using GraalVM with the Substrate native compiler to achieve very fast startup. For many Java applications compiling to native is quite difficult and often times not possible without large amounts of effort. In this talk Tom will discuss another approach that uses Linux Checkout/Restore (CRIU). CRIU is a feature on Linux that enables a snapshot of a running application to be taken. This snapshot can be restored very quickly from the point the snapshot was taken. One advantage of this approach is that once the application is restored it is business as usual for the application. All the functionality of a normal Java environment are available to the application once it is restored. No additional changes should be necessary for the application to take advantage of the instant on functionality provided by CRIU. Tom will discuss the work the Eclipse OpenJ9 and Open Liberty projects are doing to safely be able to use Checkpoint/Restore for achieving "instant on" for Java Applications.

Evolution of Milvus Cloud-Scalable Vector Database - Charles Xie & Frank Liu, Zilliz
The total amount of digital data generated worldwide is increasing at a rapid rate. Simultaneously, approximately 80% (and growing) of this newly generated data is unstructured data - data that does not conform to a table- or object-based model. Examples of unstructured data include text, images, protein structures, geospatial information, and IoT data streams. Despite this, the vast majority of companies and organizations do not have a way of storing and analyzing these increasingly large quantities of unstructured data. Embeddings - high-dimensional, dense vectors which represent the semantic content of unstructured data - can remedy this. Armed with this knowledge, it's clear that the mobile/IoT era necessitates a new type of cloud-native, fully distributed database purpose-built to store, search, and index large quantities of embedding vectors: Milvus.

In this presentation, we'll introduce the design of Milvus 2.0 - the world's most popular open-source vector database trusted by over 1000 organizations. Milvus 2.0 represents a complete paradigm shift in the underlying vector database architecture - cloud-native, horizontally scalable, and fully distributed. We will also briefly discuss the evolution from Milvus 1.0 to 2.0 and share various real-world use cases and applications.

The TRUE Cost of Open Source - Suzanne Ambiel, VMware
The True Cost of Open Source - and how OSPOs can help As companies increase their use of open source - or, more likely, increase their awareness of their actual use of open source, greater scrutiny and investment is paramount. In many organizations today, open source software is often the last in line for investment: as a “free” resource, it doesn’t rise to level of budgetary impact and influence that it should. And the data shows that while the consumption of open source is rising the contribution activity is flat to declining. This presentation will use common economic theory to unveil some of the challenges of open source: including the free rider problem, the paradox of value, and the tragedy of the commons. We’ll look at how OSPOs can help an organization elevate the strategic significance of open source, and influence investment in key projects. The advice in this presentation will help you move your open source participation from a passive, ad-hoc consumption model to one that’s more strategic and future forward. Learn how to justify open source participation to strike a good balance between your business needs and the needs of the open source community. (Note this presentation will focus on the role of OSPOs, less on project health)

Going Beyond Metadata: Why We Need to Think of Adopting Static Analysis in Dependency Tools - Joseph Hejderup, TU Delft | Endor Labs
Plugins to package managers such as cargo audit, npm audit, and dependency bots such as Dependabot or Renovate primarily rely on making recommendations to developers by analyzing build manifests in projects. Metadata analyses (or dependency tree analyses) are typically insufficient for making quick decisions on whether a project is affected, for example, by a security or performance bug. Much effort goes into testing and manual code reviews to determine whether a project is affected---not many analysis looks into how projects "actually use" their dependencies at the source code level. As more and more dependency-analysis-based projects are looking to integrate some form of static analysis in their products, we will in this talk focus on the challenges of incorporating static analysis: cases where it is helpful and not helpful, practical examples demonstrating substantial differences between metadata and static analysis, and what new "powers" static analysis brings to package repository-level analytics.

How Do We Rank Project Risk? - Jacques Chester, Shopify
Somewhere, right now, out there in the world, lurks libnebraska*. To most of us it seems innocuous and maybe even irrelevant. But it turns out to be on the critical dependency path for massive swathes of software worldwide. If a vulnerability affects libnebraska, or someone malicious takes control of it, we're all in a world of hurt.

How can we identify libnebraska? How can we estimate its risks? How can we classify projects into Alpha and Omega categories? Who should make these identifications and estimates? How should they do it?

In this talk, Jacques will discuss various methods for integrating the information that can be found in expert opinions. As an adjunct to data-driven methods, aggregation of expert opinions may be vital to identifying and protecting the next libnebraska.

Personnel Chaos Engineering and Building a Resilient Organizational Structure - Jennifer D Bergstrom, Parsons
Chaos Engineering is a strategy used by many in the technology industry to validate the resiliency and fault tolerance of their software and infrastructure as code solutions. However, Chaos Engineering is valuable as a tactic across more than simply the software and infrastructure of systems running in production. Chaos Engineering can also be used to test the security of systems and the resiliency of corporate personnel structures, processes, and tools. During this presentation, Jenn will walk through the history of Chaos Engineering and present examples of experiments that can be used to test an organization's resiliency. Just as deliberate injection of failure states into an operational environment can have unexpected ripple effects, injection of failure states into an organization's staffing profile, processes, and tooling can as well. How resilient is your corporate structure? Does it contain key personnel that are single points of failure? How can a corporation build a more resilient organizational profile without adding unnecessary expense and personnel redundancy? Jenn will talk about strategies to mitigate single points of failure within an organization without driving up cost.

Kubernetes is Your Cloud Control Plane - Josh Gavant, Red Hat
Kubernetes accelerates app development by providing a standard interface for managing compute, network and storage in any cloud or datacenter. But the promised value of cloud computing depends on more than these; developers need higher-level services too, like databases, streams, buckets, identities, monitors and pipelines. And so Kubernetes' next act is to deliver high-level capabilities on any underlying provider via the same consistent interfaces used for compute, network and storage. That is, soon every dependency of your app will be described and managed by Kubernetes resources and their controllers.

In this session we'll describe how the Kubernetes API and custom resource definition emerged as an open standard for describing cloud infrastructure, services and apps. We'll discuss paradigms and frameworks used to build and manage controllers for these resources and compare and contrast types published by several providers, like Strimzi's KafkaTopic, cert-manager's Certificate or a DynamoDB Table. We'll demonstrate conventions emerging from projects like Crossplane and Operator Framework to provide consistency and simplicity for developers and operators of custom resources. And we'll review common problems that Kubernetes resource providers must handle, such as publishing connection secrets and managing controller provisioning and updates.

Lessons Learned Supporting Nearly 200,000 IoT Devices - Marc Pous, Balena.io
Deploying IoT devices in bulk, and then managing and maintaining that fleet of devices is hard work! At Balena, our customers do that everyday, and when they run into trouble, we do our best to help and support them. As a result, we’ve seen firsthand (many times over now!) how projects can succeed, or fail. In this talk, we’ll capture some of the best practices and lessons we’ve learned over the years, helping customers deploy and maintain fleets of hundreds, thousands, and tens of thousands of Edge and IoT devices. Specifically, we’ll discuss and explain some FleetOps strategies we’ve seen be successful, we’ll cover some basic connectivity choices and best practices for IoT devices, talk about storage media and SD Card corruption, and finish up with a quick discussion of hardware selection (which can be quite challenging with the current Chip Shortage and Supply Chain issues) based on anticipated workload and environmental constraints such as power, size, and thermal considerations. We'll be sure to leave plenty of time for questions and discussion, because attendees will likely have some stories of their own to share.

Postmortem Analysis with Kexec/kdump and Ftrace - Steven Rostedt, Google
There are times when the system panics and the cause is very hard to diagnose. Running a trace can help you find what lead up to the bug, but the problem now remains to be extracting the tracing data. The command ftrace_dump_on_oops can trigger the tracing data to spit out over the console, but there may be some scenarios which may make that not possible. The crash may be from a customer, and all you can get is the core dump from it. Kexec/kdump along with the crash utility can produce a lot of information to help diagnose a cause of a kernel crash. But few people know that there's a plugin that allows you to extract the ftrace buffers and create a trace.dat file that trace-cmd and KernelShark can read. This talk will go over how to extract the ftrace ring buffer from a Linux kernel core dump from crash, and use it to debug the cause of the panic. It will also describe various issues that can arise in trying to accomplish this (as crash is fragile with the constantly changing kernel) and the ways to mitigate those problems.

Mitigating Bias in Models with SHAP and Fairlearn - Sean Owen, Databricks
Issues of "fairness" in machine learning are rightfully at the forefront today. It's not enough to have an accurate model; practitioners increasingly need to assess when and why a predictive model's results are unfair, often to groups of people. While much has already been said about detecting unfairness or bias, relatively less attention has been given to what to do about it. My model output is "unfair"; now what? This session will examine how open source tools like SHAP and Microsoft's Fairlearn can be used to actually correct for model bias. It will also discuss what "fair" even means and the tradeoffs that different answers imply. In the accompanying technical demo, these tools will be used, along with xgboost and MLflow, to show how two different mitigation strategies can be retrofit to modeling pipelines.

Sponsored Session: Consumers to Contributors - Open Source as a Competitive Advantage - Brendan O'Leary, GitLab
Open Source software is ubiquitous and impossible to ignore. Most every company will utilize open source software and it can become your biggest asset or the cause of the biggest problems. Most of the time, we consume open source without really considering the long-term impact on our business. So why would a business, enterprise, or organization decide to become a Contributor instead of just a Consumer?

In this talk, we'll look at some of the biggest success stories in enterprise open source software partnerships - as well as some of the cautionary tales. The more an organization is involved in co-creating the open source packages they use, the more both the organization and the open source project benefit.

This session is for everyone: open source maintainers, OSPO leaders, or just open source advocates in large enterprises. At the end of our session, you'll be able to articulate the tangible and emergent benefits organizations and enterprises gain when they stop just consuming open source software and instead embrace "Everyone can contribute."

Kubernetes Risk Assessment: Time to Go One Level Deeper - Ariel Shuper, Cisco
At present, the common Kubernetes risk assessment framework is based on the popular CIS benchmarks for Kubernetes. This framework consists of a comprehensive set of tests covering all the Kubernetes elements' configuration. But the framework doesn't go deeper than the security configurations of the various elements. Real attacks can start by multiple elements expanding beyond security misconfigurations. Moreover, in the popular managed Kubernetes services (e.g., EKS, AKS or GKE), running these tests can be challenging. Hence, there's a need for an additional risk-assessment framework that can go deeper than the Kubernetes configurations, verifying that all other attack methods, steps, and stages are covered. This talk will show a new industry-driven framework led by MITRE crafting an ATT&CK matrix for containers/Kubernetes, which consist of tactics and techniques used in real attacks

Turning Users Into Advocates, at Scale - Karin Wolok, StarTree
In the open source data space, having a friendly and engaged community behind your product is almost table stakes in 2022. But encouraging those community members to advocate for the product is a challenge on its own. People aren't going to promote something just because they've been asked to do so, they need to feel a deep affinity for it. If the community becomes part of their identity and who they are, it will be hard to stop them spreading the word! For the last 5 years I've been building programs that turn the most engaged users into advocates, first at Neo4j for the graph database community, and now at StarTree where we're building a community of real-time analytics enthusiasts. In this talk we'll cover strategies and tactics on how to build a program to encourage your users to advocate and how to do it at scale. I'll share the things that have worked (and those that haven't!) and you'll be left with some key takeaways that you can use to build your own community of advocates.

Sharing is NOT Caring: Stop Sharing Your Kubernetes Cluster Credentials - Leigh Capili & Nigel Brown, VMware
Attention Kubernetes admins! That kubeconfig your developer just downloaded has credentials that can compromise not just their system but potentially your entire Platform! Stop taking the risk and switch to using kubeconfigs that can be securely distributed to users. In this talk, we will discuss how an open source solution, Pinniped, helps solve your problem of secure kubeconfig generation. Pinniped kubeconfigs can be safely distributed as they don't have any user specific credentials. But users have authentication requirements beyond just safe kubeconfig generation, such as seamless cluster access without having to login multiple times a day, support for multiple clouds provider access, and the ability to integrate with various identity providers. In our session, we will deep dive into the architectural components of Pinniped and explain how they help solve the authentication challenges for Kubernetes users.

Using FOSS as Part of a System Safety Mechanism - Paul Albertella, Codethink
Applying functional safety practices to free and open source software (FOSS) can seem challenging, because the communities that develop it very rarely exhibit all of the processes that safety standards expect. We can still make a case for using FOSS in a safety context, however, provided that we can control how we consume and construct it, specify its role and responsibilities, analyse the associated risks and specify how these are mitigated. As part of our ongoing work to accomplish this for systems based on Linux, Codethink have been investigating the range of safety-related responsibilities that FOSS might have in a system and how these may be defined or realised through interactions with other components, both hardware and software. An interesting example, which illustrates these interdependencies, relates to software safety mechanisms that are intended to mitigate random hardware failures. Arm have developed a software test library (STL) to provide this kind of mechanism for their processors. With Arm's support, Codethink have been integrating this for a Linux-based OS and testing it on the Raspberry Pi 4. We describe the challenges we encountered, the approach we took for integration and what we discovered in the process.

Delving into the Linux Boot Process for an ARM SoC - Ajay Kumar & Thiagu Ramalingam, Samsung
Ever wondered how you push a button and swiftly you are being taken to the Phone login screen, or the Linux desktop? The modern Linux system is no less than IronMan, and the transition from the start button to home screen is as exciting as IronMan suit up scene.  All the Linux action takes place on a battleground called "Main Memory" which is initialized by the bootloader. The bootloader also loads and sets up the preface for the Linux image to boot.  Like the IronMan suit is different for different type of crisis situation, the Linux Image indeed wears a different suit based on the "Device Tree Blob(dtb)". We shall see how much support Linux offers in describing and parsing the dtb. We shall discuss when and how the dtb is parsed, and the sequence that follows.  Like the core of the IronMan suit powers the Ironman, we shall witness how multiple cores that runs a Linux system are initialized and powered up in the Linux.  After the cores are fully powered up, we shall prepare the Armory Systems to fire. Here we discuss the initialization of other subsystems in Linux like timers, clocks, pinmux, and the serial console. Post the system H/W initialization, what follows are the user processes which draw the required home screen and the IronMan suit up is deemed to be complete!

How to Choose a Software Update Mechanism for Embedded Linux Devices - Leon Anavi, Konsulko Group
Atomic software system update of an embedded Linux device has always been an important part of any product, especially nowadays with the existing large fleets of connected devices and Internet of Things. There are several different widely used in the industry approaches: A/B updates with dual redundant scheme, delta updates, container-based updates and combined strategies. Open source technologies such as Mender, RAUC and libostree based solutions implement these strategies and provide tools to manage updates of multiple devices. What are the advantages and disadvantages? How to choose an appropriate open source solution for a specific project? This session explores a number of different open source Linux software update technologies with practical examples for integrating them using the Yocto Project and OpenEmbedded. In order to better understand the strengths and weaknesses of each technology, we deep dive in various use cases. The talk is appropriate for anyone with basic knowledge about Linux. It will hopefully help managers, engineers and developers better understand the technical challenges and the available open source solutions with which to overcome them easier and faster so that they can focus on the unique core features of their products.

Kubernetes Network Policy Enforcement in XDP without IP Translation - Hong Chang, Futurewei Technologies, Inc & Xiaoning Ding, ByteDance (Tiktok)
Network policies in Kubernetes extensively rely on pod labels in order to provide flexible access control rules for network connectivity between pods. However, traditional label->IP translation based approach isn’t efficient enough to support cloud environment needs where pods rapidly come and go. In this talk, Hong and Xiaoning introduce an efficient network policy enforcement mechanism implemented in XDP. In the Linux kernel, eBPF/XDP is a fast-growing technology which enables examining and filtering packets at the NIC driver level. Their proposed solution achieves O(1) time complexity by judiciously making use of various eBPF map hash-tables. They do this by employing a mechanism to label packets using GENEVE options. This eliminates the cost of label->IP translation policy updates because pod packets with identical labels are subject to identical policies regardless of the pod IPs. They conclude the talk with a demo of their work. Cloud providers are looking for ways to increase performance and efficiency. Their work addresses this ask. They are hoping that with more community involvement, there are opportunities to evolve this new idea further and solidify the overall solution by collaboratively working together in the open source community.

Using OpenSSF's Allstar to Secure Your Organizations GitHub Repositories - Jeff Mendoza, Google
OpenSSF's Allstar is a tool for administrators of GitHub organizations to help improve the security posture of their repositories. While GitHub provides some security settings at the organization level, such as 2-factor authentication requirement, other settings are only at the repository level, such as branch protection settings. Fortunately Allstar is able to scale setting enforcement across many repositories in a large organization. This talk will cover the security best practices that are baked-in to Allstar, and the configuration of those practices to allow defining a custom security policy that can fit the needs of various organizations. Policy enforcement actions will be covered, including notification, and direct setting remediation. Finally, it will cover what is next for Allstar, and ideas for future security policies.

Managing Application Level SBOMs with Ortelius - Tracy Ragan, DeployHub
SBOMs, or Software Bill of Material reports, are finally being recognized for their importance in hardening cyber security. They play a crucial role in building transparency into the binary objects we deliver to our end users. Most of us think of an SBOM at the application level. In a microservice implementation, we generate the SBOM at the service level. This presentation will review how Ortelius, incubating at the Continuous Delivery Foundation, provides SBOMs aggregated at the ‘logical’ application level, with versioning. In addition to SBOMs, Ortelius also aggregates application level licensing and CVE reports providing the insights needed to build trust into the supply chain across the organization. Ortelius's architecture will be reviewed, showing how its versioning and dependency engine tracks updates to a container registry, which triggers the creation of new service and application versions, with continuous SBOM updates.

What Role Do Package Registries Have in Securing the Supply Chain? - Justin Colannino & Margaret Tucker, GitHub
This interactive session will discuss the important role of package registries in securing the open source software supply chain, as well as best practices and guiding principles for a secure package registry ecosystem. Maintainers have been managing risk in their ecosystems since the start and are the first line of defense for ecosystem code quality. But package registries also have a responsibility to protect developers depending on their package ecosystem and, ultimately, the end-users of the software. This responsibility to maintain safety and reliability must be balanced against the freedom and creativity of package maintainers whose skill, innovation, and gumption allow others to accomplish great things.

Open Source BPM Comparison - Andrew Bonham, Capital One
Workflow is a capability commonly needed across large organizations today. Open Source Business Process Management (BPM) solutions are a powerful tool to automate business processes in the cloud. They bring together business and technical experts to collaborate and create industry standard modeling notation known as BPMN. BPM tools then bring the BPMN to life by being able to execute the BPMN in an process engine. But which open source project should you choose? jBPM, Activity, Camunda, Flowable? It can be a confusing landscape as things are constantly changing and many of the products forked off of each other at one point in time. Come join us in this talk to get clarity on the BPM landscape. We will evaluate each open source project on key dimensions in a compare and contrast format. You will learn more about open source BPM, how you can use it in the cloud, and which BPM project you should use for your next workflow problem.

Panel Discussion: Marketing is Essential (and Not Sleazy) for Open Source Projects - Emily Omier, Emily Omier Consulting, LLC; Jana Iris, PlanetScale; Matt Yonkovit, Percona; Nithya Ruff, Amazon
The word ‘marketing’ has a bad reputation in the open source world, but if you want to gain traction and build a community of engaged users and contributors, people need to know your project exists — in other words, marketing. Regardless of your project’s goals or your project’s current size, marketing is critical for continued growth and adoption, both to get people to discover your project, understand what your project does, onboard new users and increase engagement among existing users. Authentic marketing should never feel sleazy, and there’s no reason open source maintainers can’t borrow marketing ideas from the for-profit world when spreading the word about their projects. In this panel, Emily Omier, Jana Iris, Nithya Ruff, and Matt Yonkovit will discuss marketing and community building strategies and how they can be applied to open source software. Attendees will learn how to apply these strategies to their own projects, taking into account their goals for the project, skill sets and resources at their disposal.

Application AutoScaling Through Elastic Kubernetes POD - Cathy Zhang & Theresa Shan, Intel
Application autoscaling refers to the operation of automatically adjusting the number of running application containers to meet the traffic demand. In the current K8S design, each application container runs inside its dedicated runtime environment POD. Scaling the application containers means creating/deleting more PODs which results in high latency and slow response. This talk presents a new approach to support application autoscaling. Rather than spawning a new pod, the new approach replicates one or more new application containers inside an existing Kubernetes POD and automatically adjusts the resource boundary of the POD. This avoids the cold startup latency associated with creating a new POD, thus greatly increasing the scaling speed. We will share how we enhance Kubernetes Vertical POD Autoscaler to support this new approach.

Xen in Safety-Critical Systems - Stefano Stabellini, AMD & Bertrand Marquis, Arm
Xen Project is a static partitioning hypervisor for embedded deployments (industrial, medical, etc.) Xen enforces strong isolation between domains so that one cannot affect the execution of another. Features such as cache coloring reduce interference and improve interrupt latency and determinism. A real-time workload can run alongside a more complex guest. But can it be used in safety-critical environments? The Xen hypervisor has a microkernel design: services and tools are non-essential and run in unprivileged VMs, while the core is less than 50K LOC. This architecture lends itself well to safety-critical applications as only the core is critical and needs to go through the certification process. This presentation will describe the activities of the Xen FuSa SIG (Special Interest Group) to make Xen easier to safety-certify. It will go through the aspects of Xen that pertain safety and it will explain how to set up a mixed-criticality system with Xen. The talk will discuss the challenges of making an Open Source project safety-certifiable and the progress that the Xen community made so far in the areas of documentation and requirements, MISRA-C code compliance, and interference reduction.

Finding the Path from Embedded to Edge using Product Lines - Steffen Evers, Bosch.IO & Philipp Ahmann, Robert Bosch GmBH
Linux is used for many embedded device classes today. However, it is increasingly desirable to connect these devices with each other and with the cloud. Embedded container technology can be used to make this easier by merging server/cloud and embedded technologies. However, it also leads to more challenges e.g. in respect to security, safety, traceability, and SBOMs. Using Linux across multiple device classes and product lines, and adding cloud technology, causes the complexity and efforts to explode.

In this talk, we describe how Bosch, and others, use embedded containers and "reference systems" to avoid redundant work and get a large number of embedded projects under control.

A reference system is an adjustable compilation of tools along with a pre-configured bundle of packages for a common use case and defined set of devices. This reuse significantly reduces development and maintenance costs, and speeds up the time to market. In this way, reference systems can form the base for your product lines.

Bosch uses the in-house Debian-based embedded distribution “APERTIS” as the basis for several reference systems, e.g. for automotive infotainment systems. In doing so we push as many efforts as possible from individual projects into Apertis, as the meta-layer. Thereby, the users can focus more on the actual functionality and applications. e.g. one issue that we have addressed in the context of software management is the handling of GPL-3 in embedded devices. Another topic has been mainline support for kernel drivers.

We are looking for other interested parties and their ideas to jointly face shared challenges in the open source space.

Peeling Back the Layers of Storage - John Hawley, VMware
Linux has a myriad of storage options, and a number of layers that can be built one on top of another, to form some very robust, but potentially very complex, stacks that provide the entirety of the storage system. My intention is to work my way up from the most basic storage layer, physical storage, and explain what options there are from basic single disk and a file system type systems, to a full layered look at a system with raided disks, ssd caching, deduplication, all the way up through file systems in user space. This is specifically targeted as a high level overview of the systems involved, block, volume, and filesystems but it's also intended to go over some more complex systems, and how to achieve things like on the fly disk compression, deduplication, and give an overview of the different technologies available to achieve similar ends.

Building an Open Source Community from the Ground Up: Red Hat’s Game Industry Community of Practice - Ruth Suehle, Red Hat
Building a community is fundamentally about recognizing a group of people with underserved needs and the common thread of interest and passion that engages them. Red Hat is home to more than 50 Communities of Practice (CoPs): internal communities where associates from many differing roles and departments collaborate on technical, task-related, or vertical-centric topics. One is the Gaming CoP, focused on the video game industry (which is not historically a deep user of or contributor to open source), but more broadly, the interactive entertainment and simulation industries from animation and film to robotics and AI. We’ve built an open source arcade, hosted livestreams and podcasts, created demos, and engaged hundreds of colleagues with open source through a shared love for gaming. Join Gaming CoP leader Ruth Suehle to learn about building influence in an industry that has low open source familiarity or trust, the current state of open source in game development, and how to build an open community of practice in your company. If you heard this talk at OSS 2021, return to hear about a new year of growth, adjusting to change, and the lessons learned.

Purl and Vers: The Mostly Universal Package URL and Version Ranges Identifiers for Dependencies and Vulnerabilities - Philippe Ombredanne, AboutCode and NexB & Hritik Vijay, Independent
Because no tech stack is an island running on a single programming language and in a single package ecosystem, we need a way to talk about packages and their versions across ecosystems. purl and vers are an attempt to solve this problem and express package dependencies and vulnerabilities using a common language among multiple tools, SBOM formats and tech stacks. We will present Package URL, a way to reference packages across ecosystems which is emerging as a de-facto standard identifier for open source software packages. And we will introduce a new universal notation for package version ranges, such as used when resolving package dependencies as in "I require package foo, version 2.0 or later versions" and referencing affected vulnerable package versions as in "vulnerability CVE-123 affects package bar, version 3.1 and version 4.2 but not version 5". These two mini standards pave the way towards (mostly) universal FOSS package naming and versioning for dependency resolution and vulnerability ranges references; and are emerging as essential to reliably process vulnerability data in the software supply chain.

5 Open Source Security Tools All Developers Should Know About - Ran Regenstreif, Jit
The minimum viable security (MVS) approach, enables us to easily bake security into our config files, apps, and CI/CD processes with a few simple controls built - and the great part? It’s easily achievable through open source tooling. In this talk we will focus on five critical security controls that will be integrated as part of the CI/CD pipeline by leveraging some excellent open source tools, including: Bandit or SEMGrep for static application security (SAST), Gitleaks to detect hard-coded or insufficiently secured secrets & dependency checks (SCA), KICS for infrastructure as code (IaC) and OWASP’s ZAP for API and dynamic application security (DAST), in addition to custom controls to ensure proper enforcement of MFA via Github Security. These controls will provide a foundational framework for securing your applications from the first line of code, that will make it possible to continuously iterate and evolve your security maturity all the way through advanced layers of security that comes with time, as well as increased experience with your deployments, stacks, and security posture. Code examples & demos will be showcased as part of this session.

JavaScript in WebAssembly? Why and How - Michael Yuan, WasmEdge
As WebAssembly (WASM) is adopted in cloud-native applications, there are increasing demands to support JavaScript applications and libraries in WASM. That allows WASM runtimes, such as WasmEdge, to run serverless functions written in JavaScript and Node.js APIs. WasmEdge first wraps the C-based QuickJS interpreter in a Rust crate, and then compile it to WASM. The Rust crate allows developers to extend and enhance the JS interpreter to support ES6, CommonJS, and even NPM modules. It also enables developers to implement JavaScript APIs in Rust to improve performance. At deployment, WasmEdge can run as a secure container in k8s pods itself, as opposed to the heavyweight "Linux container + guest OS + node + v8" stack of JS tooling. Michael will walk you through the technical challenges and solutions to run JavaScript in WASM in this talk. Michael will present performance benchmarks and demonstrate complete examples running React SSR and Tensorflow inference in JS serverless functions.

Developer Experience: How to Conquer the Hearts of Developers - Elena Lape, Holographic Inc.
Developer Experience (DX) describes how developers feel using or building a software product. It’s a combination of building seamless onboarding processes, intuitive features, self-guided documentation, clear support paths, and its surrounding community. In a world where developers choose tools based on fellow developer endorsements rather than a list of advertised features, creating a pleasant DX is everything. Great DX makes a developer associate the tool with her own successes, recommend it to her peers, and make her want to contribute to making the tool even more useful. In contrast, rumors of poorly documented, unintuitive tools spread like wildfire. Without a careful DX strategy, projects and products risk being forgotten. In this session, you’ll learn what makes a developer product or an open source project truly stand out in a sea of others. You’ll witness a number of real-life examples of good vs. bad DX practices, and create a checklist to help you improve the satisfaction of your users and contributors. Lastly, you’ll be introduced to the tools and metrics you can use to measure your Developer Experience.

Do you use Redis, NGNX, and MySQL? If so, you probably have thousands of vulnerabilities and are shipping them into production environments. Yet out of 500 packages in open-source containers, you may only use 100 software packages, needlessly introducing risk into prod. In this session, Rajeev and Vinod will discuss the open-source project: Community Images. They will walk you through the process used to analyze and harden the containers and discover an easy way to remove vulnerabilities and shrink your container footprint. You’ll also learn how the open-source community can participate in the project.

Protect Your Application, Not the Network. Add Zero Trust Superpowers to Your Critical Applications and Systems - Clint Dovholuk, NetFoundry
Applications are the new edge and zero trust is the security industry’s latest hot buzzword. Most solutions are closed source and try to protect the network. Securing the network isn't enough. Adding zero trust directly to your app is the future and the best way to keep your mission-critical systems secure and running. Zero trust overlay networking can be embedded into your application making the security of the network entirely irrelevant - the isolated application will have zero trust of the internet, local and host OS network. In this session you will: • learn some core tenants of zero trust and how it's different from current network security • see what it means to embed zero trust into your app and why it's the future for application security • discover the superpowers your app gains by simply incorporating zero trust into your app

Tips, Tricks, and Gotchas for Linux Real-Time Tuning - Gratian Crisan, NI
Transforming a general purpose OS and general purpose hardware into a real-time system can at times appear like a dark art. Linux offers a myriad of options, tools, interfaces, and knobs that can be used to control and monitor application latencies. This presentation will cover Gratian's experience using Linux (PREEMPT_RT) for over a decade on real-time systems and some of the tips, tricks, and gotchas learned along the way. He will cover some of the useful configuration knobs and tools of the trade used to detect problem spots, monitor, and improve scheduling latencies. Gratian will talk about how sometimes, in chasing the lowest latency possible, you have to do away with safety nets and disable things like rt throttling, memory over-commit, swap to disk, power management, various watchdogs/lockup-detectors, and yes *shudder* even security mitigations. He will also cover some of the more extreme use cases where isolating a CPU core and spinning in a tight polling loop with scheduler ticks disabled is what you have to do to get the lowest latency possible. Gratian will also talk about some of the gotchas that you might encounter along the way: misbehaving clock sources, hardware and firmware induced latencies, problematic locks, and how futexes might be the root of all evil.

Keylime: Bootstrap and Maintain Trust on the Edge, Cloud, and IoT - Lily Sturmann & Michael Peters, Red Hat
Security is an ever-greater concern, while more critical workloads are running in the cloud than ever before. This raises questions: Is it possible to verify that only approved software is running on servers? To ensure a cloud node is booted with the right kernel options? To prevent tampering of virtual machines on a public cloud? And is it possible to do all of this remotely and at scale, using open source solutions? Yes: Keylime is a CNCF sandbox project encompassing all of these goals. Leveraging two foundational security technologies, hardware Trusted Platform Modules (TPMs) and the Linux Integrity Measurement Architecture (IMA), Keylime has the capability to act as the bridge between these technologies and real-world deployments both large and small, offering remote attestation of both a machine's boot state and software running after boot. This session will cover how Keylime brings together TPMs and IMA, adds continuous remote attestation, and enables configurable automatic revocation actions after a compromise. The session will also discuss how to leverage Keylime with Kubernetes deployments, and Keylime's shift to Rust for a smaller footprint that works in more diverse environments. Find out how Keylime provides a compelling security story for Cloud and Edge.

Delta Lake: Diving into Data Lakes Without the Downsides - Kelly O'Malley, Databricks
By 2025 we’re estimated to generate 463 exabytes worth of data every day (weforum). With the advent of big data technologies over the last few years we’re in a better place than ever to make use of this data: build models, create dashboards. Still, 463 exabytes has a lot of zeros - fast compute engines can only get us so far if we can’t get to that data to begin with. Data lakes have been a step in the right direction; however, data lakes love to turn into data swamps. Today’s talk will discuss a solution: Delta Lake. Delta provides an open-source framework on top of a data lake that enables massive scalability while preventing garbage data from breaking downstream systems. We’ll start with the construction of Delta Lake: how it builds on parquet, and how compute engines like Spark, Trino, and Flink can interact with its transaction log to process massive amounts of metadata. We’ll also discuss how that transaction log can be used to “travel through time” while maintaining ACID guarantees on tables backed by Delta. Concerned about bad writes? Delta schema enforcement (and evolution) capabilities can handle that. Finally, we’ll wrap up with what’s coming to Delta Lake in the world of data skipping (after all, the fastest way to process data is to not touch it to begin with).

The Culture of DevOps for Secure Environments - Rob Slaughter, Defense Unicorns
Dr. Rob Slaughter has spent most of his career transforming how software is delivered to some of the most secure and important systems in the world. Having spent over a decade in the US Air Force, his work along with many others, have altered the Department of Defense from an organization that performed software updates once every few years, to an organization (that at least for some) can deliver multiple times a day. These systems determine life or death, in a VERY real way, and represent some of the most critical systems on the planet. After working with dozens of different software organizations focused on critical systems, a common thread appeared. The defining characteristic of teams that had found success and the teams that never would, wasn't specific details about their tech stack. It was culture. In this talk, Rob will share his insights and lessons learned from transforming highly regulated and secure environments, and propose a new DevOps Culture framework that shows how focusing on daily habits mapped to an organization's mission/vision and business model (Fly Wheel) is can fundamentally transformation any organization into a thought leader in DevOps.

Github Actions Security Landscape - Alex Ilgayev & Ronen Slavin, Cycode
Github Actions, the recent (from 2018) CI/CD addition to the popular source control system, is becoming an increasingly popular DevOps tool mainly due to its rich marketplace and simple integration. As part of our research of the Github actions security landscape, we discovered that in writing a perfectly secure Github actions workflow, several pitfalls could cause severe security consequences. Unless the developers are proficient in the depths of Github best-practices documents, these workflows would have mistakes. Such mistakes are costly - and could cause a potential supply-chain risk to the product. During the talk, we’ll walk you through our journey on how we found and disclosed vulnerable workflows in several popular open-source tools, delved into Github actions architecture to understand the possible consequences of these vulnerabilities, and present what could be the mitigations for such issues.

Google SLSA & NIST SSDF: Emerging Software Supply Chain Security Best Practices - Tony Loehr, Cycode
The severity and frequency of software supply chain attacks have increased significantly. How should software teams react to these new threats? Several new frameworks are emerging. At the behest of an executive order from the Whitehouse, The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) created the NIST Secure Software Development Framework (SSDF) with robust guidance on securing the software supply chain. Similarly, Google has also released the Supply chain Levels for Software Artifact (SLSA) framework for ensuring software supply chain and build integrity.  

While there is some overlap, NIST tends to focus on the “what” and Google SLSA focuses on the “how.” Combined, these two frameworks make an excellent roadmap on securing software supply chains. Yet, this combined roadmap is still not without security gaps. This presentation will compare and contrast NIST SSDF and Google SLSA:

Carbyne Stack - Cloud Native Computing on Encrypted Data - Sven Trieflinger, Robert Bosch GmbH
Data has become a strategic asset that is pooled with others for joint processing, monetized on data platforms, and used to fuel the AI revolution. As the ability to leverage internal and external data is becoming a major factor for business success, protecting valuable data is more important than ever. Enter Computing On Encrypted Data technologies (COEDs). COEDs pave the way for strong end-to-end protection of data by enabling encryption in use. One roadblock for the wider adoption of COEDs so far has been the lack of integration with state-of-the-art cloud technology to enable scalable, resilient, and easy to operate COED deployments. The Carbyne Stack open-source project has set out to close this gap by lifting a specific COED technology called Secure Multiparty Computation (MPC) into the cloud. Sven will take the audience down the rabbit hole of COED technologies and explain how Carbyne Stack blends cloud-native technology (including Kubernetes, Istio, Knative, and others) to solve the specific challenges of deploying MPC in the cloud like cross-cluster orchestration of MPC services and serverless provisioning of MPC workloads.

Managing Containerized Software on Edge Computers with Open Horizon - Glen Darling, IBM
Join Glen for a technical introduction to the Linux Foundation's Edge project, Open Horizon. Open Horizon is a single pane of glass for secure containerized software lifecycle management at extreme scale on both Kubernetes clusters and stand-alone Linux hosts running only Docker. Unlike other Edge Computing solutions, Open Horizon uses fully autonomous Agents on each edge computer, driven by your stated Intent, making independent decisions for the management of their own edge node. Open Horizon supports ARM32 (v6 and up), ARM64, x86/64, ppc64le, and soon RISC-V hardware with as little as 512MB RAM (or even less). The Agents themselves need only about 30MB at runtime. Open Horizon's decentralized architecture is the inverse of what you might expect for a system that manages large numbers of edge computers. The Agents are in charge here and cannot be coerced into violating their policies. They are designed to be installed behind firewalls and listen on no external ports at all; they are unreachable by hackers. Instead, Agents reach outward to the Management Hub for rendezvous, messaging, and other information sharing but ultimately they independently decide on the best course of action for their own node. Attend this session to learn more about this exciting open source project!

Unravelling the Magical Act of DockerSlim Minifying Container Images - Mritunjay Sharma, Slim.AI
Ever thought of attending a magical act in an Open Source Summit? Or for that matter doing an X-Ray of your containers or maybe giving them some magical portion to minify their image size? That’s exactly what magician Mritunjay is going to pull out in this act! Growing containers sizes can be a problem for both the size and security it demands. From minifying your Docker container image by up to 30x to make it securer too, this talk will entail how the magical portion of DockerSlim can simplify and optimize the developer experience with containers by making them better, smaller and securer without changing anything in the Docker container image. Through this talk, the audience will learn how DockerSlim optimizes containers by understanding the application and what it needs using various analysis techniques and how one can customize/edit containers and container metadata. Wondering what if you need some of those extra things to debug the containers? Hold your beers, this talk also entails the use of dedicated debugging side-car containers for that! So join this magical act to hook you to the journey of no longer worrying about manually creating Seccomp and AppArmor security profiles or for that matter being an expert in Linux syscalls to have securer and optimized containers!

Codes of Conduct in Action: Navigating the Challenges of Incident Resolution - Joanna Lee, Gesmer Updegrove LLLP
Codes of Conduct are essential to protecting the health and safety of open source communities. Code of Conduct (CoC) incident response is often replete with challenges, including conflict-ridden situations, unclear facts, and heated emotions. Additionally, when public in nature, CoC incidents can become politically divisive within a community, and certain types of incidents can expose project leadership and the hosting foundation to legal liability and risk.

This talk will give an overview of evolving best practices for resolving Code of Conduct incidents and navigating the challenges of incident resolution, and will discuss:
  • How Codes of Conduct and best practices are evolving
  • Fairness throughout the CoC incident response process
  • Mediation as a tool for resolving conflict
  • Applying Transformative Justice and Restorative Justice to incident resolution
  • Managing legal and community relations risks
  • Navigating conflicts of interest
  • Balancing transparency with protecting reporters’ privacy

If (oops) { Do_not_panic(); } - Lucky Tyagi, Samsung Semiconductor India R&D Center
Linux Kernel has two types of panics, namely, hard panics (Aiee!) and soft panics (Oops!). A soft panic occurs when kernel encounters a fault or exception in code, and then it dumps the stack trace in the debug console. The stack dump contains the processor status and the CPU register values when the panic occurred. Any developer must have a good understanding of the target architecture and Linux kernel internals to perform the root cause analysis of an Oops and to debug the issue. This talk is intended for developers who have just begun their journey in Linux Kernel Development. A general methodology of debugging a kernel soft panic is discussed in this talk which can be followed by anyone as starting steps. To achieve this, a simple soft panic is triggered and then a standard approach is followed, which involves understanding the kernel stack dump, back tracing to the faulty code from dump, deciding on which tool to use for debugging depending on the location of faulty code. This talk also discusses several exception templates with examples and guides to understand their types and category for accelerated debugging. The main tools discussed in this paper are, printk, oops tracing, ksymoops, KDB and KGDB.

OSFCI - Extensible Open-source CI for Firmware with Real Hardware Execution - Arun Darlie Koshy & Jean-Marie Verdun, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE)
In a post pandemic world, enabling efficient remote work has become a strong requirement. Firmware engineering workflows are difficult in a fully virtual environment. OSFCI aims to address this need by offering an edge working environment to firmware engineers with default support for open communities like OpenBMC, LinuxBoot etc. We built one of the world’s first fully open-source continuous integration platform for open-source firmware. The evolution is from some early iterations circa 2018 - coverage at that time was for LinuxBoot on very limited hardware. We now offer a web-service with a fully featured API. At a high level, we have: - a microservices based architecture implemented in Golang designed for scale - multi-node deployment that includes API / web gateway, controllers, compilers etc. - full execution on real hardware with rapid firmware swap-testing workflow - support for cutting edge industry test-frameworks - a free public instance based on cutting edge server platforms available to all This project is now part of Open Compute Platform (OCP). We welcome new users and contributors to the effort. We have easy playbooks for development and deployment.

SSDFS: Flash-friendly File System with Highly Minimized GC Activity, Diff-on-write, and Deduplication - Viacheslav Dubeyko, ByteDance
The architecture of SSDFS is the LFS file system that can: (1) exclude the GC overhead, (2) prolong NAND flash devices lifetime, (3) achieve a good performance balance even if the NAND flash device's lifetime is a priority. The fundamental concepts of SSDFS: (1) logical segment, (2) migration scheme, (3) background migration stimulation, (4) diff-on-write. Every logical block is described by {segment_id, block_index_inside_segment, length}. This concept completely excludes block mapping metadata structure updates that results in decreasing the write amplification factor. Migration scheme implies that after erase block exhaustion every update of logical block results in storing new state in the destination erase block and invalidation of logical block in the exhausted one. Regular I/O operations are capable to completely invalidate the exhausted erase block for the case of “hot" data (no necessity in GC operations). SSDFS is using the migration stimulation technique as complementary to migration scheme. It means that if some LEB is under migration then a flush thread is checking the opportunity to add some additional content into the log under commit. SSDFS is using the inline techniques to combine metadata/data pieces into one I/O request of decreasing write amplification factor.

Unikraft: Making Unikernels Mainstream - Felipe Huici, Unikraft UG
The cloud is undoubtedly a major success story, but while wildly popular, most deployed services/VMs are extremely bloated and inefficient, resulting in unnecessarily large cloud infrastructure bills and carbon footprint. Unikernels would seem to be a perfect fit for this environment: specialized VMs containing only the functionality needed by each application and resulting in boot times of only milliseconds, memory consumption of a few MBs, high throughput, and a minimal trusted computing base (TCB) to name some of their key characteristics. However, despite being around for several years and being popular in research and developer circles, unikernels have struggled to see major deployment. The reasons are several, including lack of application support, no integration with major orchestration frameworks, poor debugging functionality and documentation and in some cases lacklustre performance. The Linux Foundation Unikraft project has the explicit aim of bringing unikernels into the mainstream. In this talk we will briefly cover the project's history and architecture, and will show how Unikraft is able to provide high performance and security, all of the while making it easy for users to run unmodified mainstream applications. We will also show a brief demo.

Searching for the Right Words: Bringing NLP to Apache solr through ONNX and OpenNLP - Jeff Zemerick, Opensource Connections
Natural language processing capabilities have exploded in the past few years, with most of the work done in Python. The ONNX Runtime provides a means for using deep learning models across programming languages, architectures, and platforms, promising to further democratize advancements in machine learning. With the ONNX Runtime, developers no longer have to rely on remote services to access NLP services created in other languages. In this session we will show how a deep learning model trained using PyTorch or Tensorfow can be used for inference from a Java search stack of Apache OpenNLP, Apache Lucene, and Apache Solr. We will demonstrate how these state-of-the-art NLP capabilities can be realized in Apache Solr to offer search users a more impactful search experience. We will discuss the challenges, the relationships between OpenNLP, Lucene, and Solr, and how attendees can get started in these open source projects.

Sponsored Session: Your Next Workstation Is In The Cloud - Ketan Gangatirkar, Coder
Cloud products have generated remarkable value over the last two decades. Ironically much of this value doesn’t benefit the software engineers while they code those products. We’re still tediously constructing our workspaces by hand, just like we did in 1994.

That is finally changing – software engineering is entering the cloud era. The key is remote workspaces that use consistent images so your code truly runs on everyone’s machine. You can check out, edit, compile, test, run, debug, and do almost everything else you can do on a local machine except trip over the power cord. Remote workspaces can provide superb performance no matter what device is in your hand, on your lap, or under your desk.

These platforms are now possible because of an ecosystem rich with open source components like Docker, VS Code Remote, and Infrastructure-as-Code. There’s now a remote workspace option for almost everyone, whether working for someone else, on an open source project, or for yourself. These products are already capable enough for many, but some obstacles remain before adoption by most software engineers.

The good news is that all those obstacles will be overcome – the problems are well understood, so it’s just a matter of time. Join Ketan Gangatirkar, VP of Engineering and Product for Coder, tolearn the current state of the art, what obstacles stand in the way of mainstream adoption, and why your future workstation will be in the cloud. You may not be using a cloud workspace today, but in just a few more years you won’t consider using anything else.

Debugging at Scale in Production - Deep into Your Containers with Kubectl Debug, KoolKits and Continuous Observability - Shai Almog, Lightrun
Brian Kernigham said: “Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place.” In fact, debugging in a modern production environment is even harder - orchestrators spinning containers up and down and weird networking wizardry that keeps everything glued together, make understanding systems that much more difficult than it used to be. And, while k8s is well understood by DevOps people by now, it remains a nut that developers are still trying to crack. Where do you start when there’s a production problem? How do you get the tools you’re used to in the remote container? How do you understand what is running where and what is its current state? In this talk, we will review debugging a production application deployed to a Kubernetes cluster, and review kubectl debug - a new feature from the Kubernetes sig-cli team. In addition, we’ll review the open source KoolKits project that offers a set of (opinionated) tools for kubectl debug. KoolKits builds on top of kubectl debug by adding everything you need right into the image. When logging into a container, we’re often hit with the scarcity of tools at our disposal. No vim (for better or worse), no DB clients, no htop, no debuggers, etc… KoolKits solves those problems in an elegant way...

Be Part of the Solution: Cultivating Inclusion in Open Source - Radha Jhatakia & Mike Bufano, Google
We’ve all had moments in which we could have demonstrated better allyship behaviors to show up in support of our colleagues. From the way we conduct meetings to how we name our projects, there are countless opportunities in our day-to-day interactions to create better, more psychologically safe environments. Especially in open source, for individuals to feel empowered and comfortable contributing in the open, they need to feel included. In this session, Radha and Mike will discuss ways in which we can increase awareness of our own behaviors, and create opportunities where we can demonstrate inclusion, allyship, and advocacy. The presenters will share data from the field, discuss inclusion best practices, and leave attendees with actionable steps to cultivate inclusion in open source spaces.

Even More Board Farm Goodness - An Update on the REST API for Automated Testing - Tim Bird, Sony Corporation & Harish Bansal, TimeSys
This talk presents an update on work to create a standard API between automated tests and board farm hardware and software. Previously, we introduced the notion of a dual REST/command-line API that could be used for discovery, control and operation of hardware and network resources in a test lab. We would like to highlight additional progress of the project over the past year. There are now APIs for control of audio hardware in the lab. Also, the API usage has been integrated into a few different testing frameworks.  We will describe the new APIs we have added, and demonstrate new test frameworks working with the REST API system.  This includes frameworks for performing UI testing of a device under test.  Although different equipment is utilized in different test labs (or board farms), by using the REST API the same test can be run in the different labs to obtain test results and provide quality assurance for products. It is hoped that this board farm API abstraction will pave the way for more sharing of automated tests and testing resources, to accelerate the use of automated testing for products based on embedded Linux.

This full view allows the System Device Tree to be the "One true source" of the entire hardware description and helps to prevent the common (and hard-to-debug) problem of conflicting resources and system consistency. Lopper is an Open Source framework to parse and manipulate System Device Tree. With Lopper, it is possible to generate multiple traditional Device Trees from a single larger System Device Tree. This presentation will provide an overview of System Device Tree and will discuss the latest updates of the specification and tooling. The talk will illustrate multiple use-cases for System Device Tree with concrete examples, such as Linux running on the more powerful CPU cluster and Zephyr running on a smaller Cortex-R cluster. It will also show how to use Lopper to generate multiple traditional Device Trees targeting different OSes, not just Linux but also Zephyr/other RTOSes. Finally, an end-to-end demo based on Yocto to build a complete heterogeneous system with multiple OSes and RTOSes running on different clusters on a single reference board will be shown.

Open Source Runs the World, Why Not Vulnerability Identifiers? - Josh Bressers, Anchore & Josh Buker, Cloud Security Alliance
Open source won, it works, it’s amazing. All of the world runs on top of Open Source. We see more collaboration and progress than ever seen before in history, yet the vulnerability identifier ecosystem has failed to keep pace with this progress. It’s easy to complain about the past, building the future is hard, and building an Open Source community is even harder. The Cloud Security Alliance has created a new project called the Global Security Database (GSD) to build this future. The GSD is a working group that is building an Open Source community to help solve some of the hardest problems we see today in the vulnerability identifier space. We have a lot of problems that need new ways of thinking. At the CSA we believe the best way forward is to use all the power and advantages of Open Source to build a community and ecosystem. This session will explain what the GSD is doing today. The GSD has meetings, code, data, and a charter. What we need is help. We will explain the expectations of the GSD for the future. Ideas like informational identifiers, cloud identifiers, and namespaced metadata to name a few. The future is ours to create! We all win or we all lose, it only makes sense to work together on the future. Come hear about the GSD and learn how you can join and contribute.

A Walk through the OSPO Five-stage Model and Personas - Ana Jimenez Santamaria, TODO Group
The TODO Group published a new research that un unpacks the Evolution of the OSPO based on previous OSPO survey insights and the learnings from some of the most noted open source leaders in the community. This research provides a set of patterns and directions to help implement an OSPO (Open Source Program Office) or an open source initiative within corporate environments. This includes an OSPO Maturity model, practical implementation from noted OSPO programs across regions and sectors, and a set of OSPO Personas, which drives differentiation in OSPO behavior. During this presentation, Ana will walk through each of the sections from the study. The audience will be able to learn the different actions an OSPO or open source initiative should accomplish to advance in their OSPO journey based on the proposed model, and how to identify its OSPO persona. It will also be a space to welcome the open source community to share feedback and learn how to collaborate with these resources, expanding the initial archetype scope or improving the documentation for each of the stages.

Design Patterns for OPA and Cloud Native Authorization - Tim Hinrichs, Styra
Part of the beauty of the cloud-native ecosystem is its rich selection of best-of-breed solutions that span the entirety of the software development lifecycle: from datastores, to CICD pipelines, to programming languages, to test frameworks. The challenge, however, is that all of these different projects and components need to be independently configured to meet security, compliance, and operational mandates. In this talk we focus on the problem of authorization (controlling which users and machines can perform which actions on software) and how to solve that authorization problem across many different kinds of software using the CNCF's graduated Open Policy Agent. OPA has been used by 100s of companies all over the planet to solve a plethora of authorization challenges in different domains, e.g. Kubernetes, service-meshes, infrastructure-as-code, SSH guardrails, and application-level authorization. For a new user, the challenge is understanding how to apply OPA to solve their own authz challenges. This talks helps by describing the 4 most popular design patterns for OPA and giving the audience pointers to documentated examples of how leaders in the cloud-native space (e.g. Pinterest, Atlassian, Goldman Sachs), have applied those patterns successfully.

Scaling Your Community From a Few Hundred to Tens of Thousands - Anna Filippova, dbt Labs
dbt began as an open source project in 2016 with an ambitious goal: enable a new generation of data professionals to work together through code first workflows, CI/CD and version control. dbt soon became part of every data developers toolkit, and community emerged around the technology – a community of humans who call themselves analytics engineers. Today, this dbt Community includes 25,000 Slack group members, events in 8 countries, and connects annually at the Coalesce conference (7,000 attendees in 2021). The dbt Community is well known in open source data tooling circles as a friendly, human space that helps folks build strong connections. How do we keep this spirit alive as we scale past 25K humans? How do we make sure we retain a human first space when over 9,000 companies now use dbt daily? This talk will run through a brief history of the community and principles it was built on and then spend the majority of the time digging into practical things we've tried, what worked and what didn't and why. We'll talk about different modalities (e.g. Slack, Discourse and other platforms), how communities change as they grow globally, keeping the group in touch with its values when you can no longer moderate every message and empowering the community to self-govern.

From Laptop to Cloud: Developing Cloud Native Applications with Containerized Databases - Nicolas Vermande, Ondat
With the advent of microservices in Kubernetes, individual developer teams now manage their own data, middleware, and databases. Automated tests and CI/CD pipelines have to be revisited to include these new requirements. This session will discuss and demonstrate how to use Kustomize and Tekton to provide Kube-Native automated workflows taking into account new parameters such as database operators, StorageClass and PVC. In this talk, Nic is also going to provide some insights on how to optimize Tekton to work with multiple workspaces and overcome some of the affinity limitations. The demonstration will focus on building a comics cards web application using a flask-based frontend and leveraging postgreSQL as the database. It will cover the automation of multiple lifecycle stages: - local laptop testing automation on K3S with Kustomize - production deployment using Flux, Tekton and the Zalando PostreSQL operator

Overcoming Imposter Syndrome to Become a Conference Speaker! - Dawn Foster, VMware
Open source conferences are always striving to increase their diversity by recruiting new speakers and encouraging people from underrepresented groups to submit talks. The goal of this talk is to provide resources to help everyone feel included, welcome, and worthy of being a conference speaker. As a new speaker, how do you decide what topic to cover? What can you do to help your topic stand out? How do you prevent imposter syndrome from getting in the way of your success as a speaker? You do not need to be the world’s leading expert on a topic to give a presentation. You just need to know a few things that can help other people learn enough about the topic to get started. By bringing your authentic voice and unique perspective to the topic, people will walk away from your talk with new insights that they wouldn’t get from another speaker. This talk will cover: * Selecting a topic and a conference for your topic. * Writing a title and abstract that will increase the chances of your talk being accepted. * The importance of your bio during the talk selection process. * Tips for writing and preparing your presentation. The audience will walk away with practical advice about writing and submitting talk proposals along with some tips for delivering a successful presentation.
