Heartbleed Prompts Joint Vendor Effort to Boost OpenSSL, Security
Reeling from the Heartbleed security fiasco, major IT vendors including Microsoft, IBM, Intel, Google and Cisco are backing a Linux Foundation initiative designed to boost open source projects considered critical to the industry.
Under the Core Infrastructure Initiative, these and other tech vendors such as Fujitsu, Facebook, NetApp, Rackspace and VMware will support open source projects with funding and expertise.
Unsurprisingly, the first such project on the list for consideration is OpenSSL, the cryptographic library used by millions of websites to encrypt their communications via SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) and TLS (Transport Layer Security) whose Heartbleed vulnerability sent the entire IT industry into emergency mode earlier this month.
