Elevating Software Supply Chain Security: Eclipse Foundation's 2FA Milestone

Elevating Software Supply Chain Security: Eclipse Foundation's 2FA Milestone

Mikaël Barbero

In the realm of open-source software, security of the supply chain is not just a concern—it’s a crucial battleground. The Eclipse Foundation, at the forefront of this fight, has taken a decisive step with its 2023 initiative to enforce two-factor authentication (2FA) across its platforms. This move is more than a security upgrade; it’s a testament to the Foundation’s commitment to safeguarding the open-source software supply chain against escalating threats.

Open Source Software Supply Chain Security starts with developers

Open Source Software Supply Chain is at risk: threat actors are shifting target to amplify the blast radius of their attacks and as such increasing their return on investment. Over the past 3 years, we’ve witnessed an astonishing 742% average annual increase in Software Supply Chain attacks. To make it worse, the attack surface of the supply chain is wide. Covering it all requires a deep scrutinity of many factors. However, there is a simple thing, easy, and free, that every open source developer should do right now: activate multi factor authentication (also known as two factor authentication) on all development related accounts.
