The FASTEN project wants to support DevOps teams and help developers tracking, managing and mastering dependencies.

FASTEN’s goal is to develop a toolchain that is provisioning and collecting project information, security alerts, and repositories from well-known and widely used services. It merges this information into a data stream, performs analysis, stores it, and, consequently, builds a call-graph for each analyzed project. The gathered information is made available through a REST API and Web UI and performs continuous integration to provide developers with updated and sanitized versions of their dependencies.

One part of this toolchain will be an Open Source license analysis. This analysis should perform a verification and compatibility check on licenses used in Open Source projects and facilitate development from a user perspective as well as create industry-relevant information on license infringements. This functionality shall be presented in this talk.

FASTEN has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. It is carried out by a Consortium composed of AUEB, TUDelft, University of Milan-Bicocca, Endocode, OW2, SIG, and XWIKI.
