Using SPDX 2.0 to Share Licensing Information of a Wireless Router - Sameer Ahmed & Mark Gisi, Wind River Systems

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The next major release of the Linux Foundation’s Software Package Data Exchange (SPDX) format for sharing licensing information will become available in 2015. We have a lot of experience working with earlier versions of SPDX and took the next step to explore the latest beta version of SPDX 2.0.

We share our experience and highlight the pros and cons of using SPDX 2.0 to share licensing information in the embedded software supply chain.
