In this 60-minute webinar, Jeff Luszcz, Vice President of Product Management at Flexera and Ross Phillips, Field Operations Manager at Emenda, walks through some of the automotive industry’s most common safety certifications, how they are applied and certified, and how the use of Open Source Software (OSS) enables specific processes and potential outcomes.

The impact of OSS on software and physical supply chains is discussed, as well as common tasks involved with the discovery, management, testing, and disclosure of OSS components. Speakers specifically highlighted standards such as MISRA (Motor Industry Software Reliability Association), ISO 26262 and others, as well as how processes and tooling can help to reduce the negative consequences of third party software usage on certification efforts.

Other talking points include:

  • The steps to using OSS within ISO 26262 and how to avoid risks
  • The output of the certification process and specific code requirements
  • How scanning tools can enable compliance and produce positive certification outcomes
