📌 Formal Comments from the Department of Homeland Security Chief Information Officer · Issue #222 · WhiteHouse/source-code-policy

“When managed appropriately, releasing code as OSS and engaging with the community can have extensive cybersecurity benefits. Security through obscurity is not true security: we cannot depend on vulnerabilities not being exploited just because they have not been discovered yet. There are many examples of widely-used pieces of software that benefit greatly from constant and vigorous community reviews and contributions to find bugs, and thus making them more secure. We look forward to government systems joining them.”
