Wind River, a leader in delivering software for critical infrastructure, today announced that it is certified on OpenChain version 2.0. It was also the first company to become OpenChain conformant.

Hosted by the Linux Foundation, the OpenChain Project aims to build trust in open source by making open source license compliance simpler and more consistent. By working through the OpenChain Specification conformance process and curriculum, open source license compliance becomes more predictable, understandable and efficient for all participants in the software supply chain.

We have been fortunate to work closely with Wind River from the genesis of this project through to our current status as a growing industry standard, says Shane Coughlan, general manager, OpenChain. Our relationship with Wind River includes a strong focus on ensuring real world solutions for real world challenges. Welcoming Wind River as the first OpenChain 2.0 Conformant organization is a natural and exciting expansion of our collaboration.

Companies with OpenChain conformance are demonstrating that their delivered open source artifacts were prepared by using a comprehensive and disciplined program. It helps a company further build their reputation and trust by reinforcing that the provided artifacts are of high quality.
