About SPDX and Black Duck

Document and Share BOMs

The Software Package Data Exchange® (SPDX®) is an evolving standard for communicating the open source content, licenses and copyrights associated with a software package. The purpose of the standard is to help companies in a software supply chain more easily comply with software licensing obligations. 

Software Package Data Exchange (SPDX)

SPDX provides a uniform approach to documenting and sharing a software bill of materials (BOM), making it more efficient for supply chain partners to communicate. The standard is developed and maintained by the SPDX workgroup of the Linux Foundation and is a critical element of the foundation’s Open Compliance Program.
Black Duck’s Support of SPDX
Black Duck has been instrumental in developing SPDX through participation in the SPDX workgroup. Our involvement includes:
  • Chairing the SPDX workgroup
  • Actively participating in the three SPDX teams: Technical, Business and Legal
  • Authoring the first SPDX whitepaper
  • Developing and evolving the structure of the website and supporting the SPDX beta process
  • Implementing SPDX software BOM in the Black Duck® Suite at no additional cost to customers
