Application Security for Open Source Software
Open Source has been a blessing to the development community. However
undocumented open source now permeates production code. While IP issues
are the most obvious concerns, security has become THE big concern. You
can't patch what you do not know you have.
Firms are finding out that they have 5x the amount of open source they
thought and hundreds of undocumented modules. Palamida technology
identifies these, matches them to the vulnerability data base and supplies
a tool suite for maintenance and good housekeeping going forward.
Mark Tolliver's talk, while providing a glimpse of the product, will
include case studies and examples of open source caused disruptions. From
popular ones which did minimal damage like the iPhone hack to an example of
one that casued a very well known security breach at a household name
Mark will also share examples of how major firms use Palamida ( such as
Microsoft in their M&A team) to major enterprises.
About Mark Tolliver:
Mark Tolliver brings more than 30 years of experience in the high-tech
industry to his position as CEO of Palamida, a San Francisco-based
software company focused on software intellectual property management and
Prior to Palamida, Tolliver was executive vice president, marketing and
strategy, and chief strategy officer for Sun Microsystems. In that role
he was responsible for corporate marketing, product and business strategy,
mergers and acquisitions, industry marketing and independent software

Tolliver was with Sun for ten years, previously serving as president and
general manager of iPlanet. Established in November 1998, iPlanet was a
