Re: SPDX Goes ISO

I just realized that the DocFest will be demonstrating interoperability of an ISO standard SBOM.

Great timing getting the ISO standard status before the 9/16 DocFest. Very cool!

A big +1 from me. Thank you to all the SPDX contributors and everyone involved in the years-long process of getting the SPDX standard to where it is today, and especially to Kate for her tireless efforts in making it all happen!

I’m pleased to announce that SPDX is now ISO/IEC 5962:2021.

 

Many people have worked hard over the last decade to get us to this point. Big credit goes to my Steering Committee colleagues who have all been instrumental. And we should recognize that this was all Kate’s brainchild. I believe it was Fall of 2009 when she started informally socializing the idea of a standard SBOM format at Linux Foundation events. Not too long thereafter, in the then single weekly meeting, early participants began debating whether it should be SPDE, ultimately deciding “X” at the end would be catchier. And now it’s officially caught.
