Project Abstract
A new way to certify open source software

Europe depends on open source software (OSS) that is mostly designed abroad. In particular, the European Digital Single Market lacks an in-house software, with data showing that most is assembled online and more than half is derived from OSS, mainly from outside Europe. Universities, small, medium- and large-sized enterprises, a specialised interest group and an advisory board with key OSS and industry profiles have teamed up to create new methods and approaches to accelerate the development of better software. The EU-funded AssureMOSS project will address the challenge of OSS designed in any location, but secured in Europe. Specifically, it proposes to make the shift from process-based to artefact-based security evaluation, by supporting all phases of the continuous software life-cycle (design, develop, deploy, evaluate and back up).
