Great to see this effort
A great step to take for the industry. Software security has always been an Achilles heel, and the software supply chain as a whole has not been serious enough to take on this challenge. I hope the working group will produce something concrete and usable.

Re: Great to see this effort
@Chenxiwang -- thanks for feedback.  Yes, the software supply chain is becoming a greater challenge, given the fact that open-source is more widely used and software reuse.  We are definitely trying to define an appropriate approach to address 3rd party software.  


THanks again for you support

Will the EWG be publishing a report?
This is a useful overview.  Will the EWG be releasing a more detailed report?

Re: Will the EWG be publishing a report?
That's a possibilty at some point.  With all the cyber legistlation coming out from a federal perspective, it would be nice to have something that compliments the changing in the cyber landscape.  Stay tuned!!!
