Brussels / 3 & 4 February 2024


Panel discussion: Software Naming

The naming of software packages is a difficult matter. In the world of SBOMs (and related tooling), package identifiers are an integral part. OmniBOR, Package-URL (PURL), SWHID, as well as CPE, SWID and others are all identifiers for packages.

The panelists will discuss the pros and cons of the different package identification schemes and how to decide when to use which one.

The discussion will be moderated by Kate Stewart.
