Abstract

When you open up a webpage, or write an e-mail you are dependent on hundreds of libraries and many million lines of code working as expected. Considering your average free software stack, your trust is in the developers and maintainers of the application, the libraries and the distro to do their job. Recently projects were initiated to build a second chain of trust, in the software itself. In my presentation I'll explain why we need to increase the trustworthiness of our systems, and what solutions are being worked on to increase that trust. Some of the projects I'll highlight are Reproducible builds, GuixSD, QubesOS and the L4 kernel.
