No video of the event yet, sorry!

In these days no software product can be shipped without having security in mind, both before and after shipping, which goes for all Linux distributions, be they Enterprise or Community Linux distributions.

The security of the openSUSE distribution is under the sharp eyes of the SUSE Security Team. Several long time security experts coordinate that it is developed in a secure way (proactive) , and that after release all upcoming security incidents are correctly tracked and fixed (reactive).

An introduction to our reactive workflow will be given, and we will also look at the proactive work we are doing for Factory.
