Discussion: Core Infrastructure Initiative


Emily Ratliff, Linux Foundation


The Linux Foundation announced the Core Infrastructure Initiative on April 24 of last year to “fund and support critical elements of the global information infrastructure” and famously funded two OpenSSL developers. What else has the project achieved since then? Has the initiative made an impact? This topic will present an update of what the initiative is doing, including a brief description of the open source Census project and the goals behind the Best Practices project. We invite a discussion about what more needs to be done and how we can pull together as a community to improve internet security for everybody.
