Sep 28, 2009 – EclipseSource Inc, the leading provider of Eclipse
runtime products and services today announced that it has received TÜV
certification of its proprietary process for validating and securing
open source components. This industry-first achievement offers
unprecedented protection and reassurance for organizations using open
source components in their tool chain as well as those building
applications on top of Eclipse and OSGi runtime technologies.

Software components validated using EclipseSource’s certified
methodology, combined with the company’s secure provisioning and
component delivery platforms, form the cornerstone of EclipseSource’s
SecureSource product suite. SecureSource, provided to client
organizations as a subscription-based service, is designed to eliminate
concerns about open source code authenticity and origin.

“We are pleased to be the first company to deliver a TÜV certified
process for validating open source software”, said Jochen Krause, CEO,
EclipseSource. “This removes one of the last great hurdles to open
source adoption: ensuring that the open source components our customers
use are authentic and free of security and licensing issues.”

The TÜV certification is based on the ISO/IEC 25051:2006 standard for
software engineering and software product evaluation. The EclipseSource
process ensures the pedigree of each component, scans it for security
issues, captures license characterization and provides a secure
mechanism for the delivery of the digitally signed components to the

“Certification of our open source validation process by a leading
standards organization like TÜV provides assurance to our customers that
they are using rigorously validated open source components in their tool
chain and runtimes”, said Jeff McAffer, EclipseSource’s CTO and co-lead
of the Eclipse Equinox and RCP teams. “Ultimately, it means that
organizations can make full use of open source without the significant
overhead of having to validate these components themselves."

SecureSource is available immediately from EclipseSource as
subscription-based service and includes secure versions of the latest
Eclipse 3.5.1 download.
