  • Venez découvrir pourquoi Nextcloud est de plus en plus installé en France

    Olivier Paroz – Tuesday, December 10, 14:35 – 15:00

    Discover why Nextcloud is increasingly installed in France

    The demand for online collaboration and communication tools is growing rapidly. Nextcloud offers a real alternative to the solutions of American giants while remaining 100% Open Source and allowing organizations that use it to keep control over their data. It is for these reasons that Nextcloud is increasingly used in France, whether in Ministries, universities or companies.

    “I will present to you the progress made over the past 12 months, as well as some concrete cases.”

  • Le Spleen du mainteneur: ne négligeons pas la sécurité organisationnelle dans l’open source !

    Nina Cercy – Wednesday, December 11, 14:45 – 15:30

    The Spleen of the maintainer: let’s not neglect organizational security in open source!

    November 26, 2018: the event-stream security team, an npm package, is contacted about an infected package that allows its author to steal Bitcoins. Oh no, there’s no event stream security team. We therefore contact the person responsible for the package directly. Well, it turns out she’s no longer holding the package. Come on, let’s wake up the CISO of the compan… Neither? Are we turning against the company that audited such a widely distributed package? Audiwhat? There was no illegitimate elevation of privileges. No spoofing. No vulnerability in the Github code, neither on the app side nor on the npm side itself. Just a smart attacker who asked to maintain an npm package and quietly injected his malicious code once the official maintainer. In open source, the trust chain is essential to ensure development security, and organizational security is sometimes overlooked: let’s look at the good practices to be put in place.

  • Open source et RGPD : quel partage de responsabilités ?

    Nina Cercy – Wednesday, December 11, 16:00 – 16:30

    Open source and RGPD: which division of responsibilities?

    While the case of SaaS vendors has been quite well defined, the regulation around the responsibilities of open source vendors towards the RGPD remains unclear: who is responsible in case of a security breach? What is the status of the publisher? What about support ? A brief overview of the thousand complex situations that can arise when developing in open source.
