Background

    This National Telecommunications and Information Administration 
cybersecurity multistakeholder process focuses on promoting software 
component transparency. Most modern software is not written completely 
from scratch, but includes existing components, modules, and libraries 
from the open source and commercial software world. Modern development 
practices such as code reuse, and a dynamic IT marketplace with 
acquisitions and mergers, make it challenging to track the use of 
software components. The Internet of Things compounds this phenomenon, 
as new organizations, enterprises, and innovators take on the role of 
software developer to add ``smart'' features or connectivity to their 
products. While the majority of libraries and components do not have 
known vulnerabilities, many do, and the sheer quantity of software 
means that some software products ship with vulnerable or out-of-date 
components.
    The first meeting of this multistakeholder process was held on July 
19, 2018, in Washington, DC.\1\ Stakeholders presented multiple 
perspectives, and identified several inter-related work streams: 
Understanding the Problem, Use Cases and State of Practice, Standards 
and Formats, and Healthcare Proof of Concept. Since then, stakeholders 
have been discussing key issues and developing products such as 
guidance documents. NTIA acts as the convener, but stakeholders drive 
the outcomes. Success of the process will be evaluated by the extent to 
which broader findings on software component transparency are 
implemented across the ecosystem.

2018, kickoff meeting are available at: https://www.ntia.doc.gov/SoftwareTransparency.

    The first set of stakeholder-drafted documents on Software Bills of 
Materials was published by NTIA in November 2019. Those documents, and
