Software solutions, whether it is an application, library, container or an entire Linux runtime are comprised of some percentage of open source software. Tracking which components were used, when and by whom across the software supply chain has multiple benefits. We discuss the benefits and how a Blockchain ledger is used to solve the open source tracking problem for both internal development teams in large organizations and external suppliers across a supply chain.
