Containers are on everyone’s mind. They are the future. They make everything better, easier, faster, cleaner, simpler, and more secure. At least that’s the impression you could get, listening to the hype or attending some of the conferences on the topic.
One area, however, you don’t hear much about, is compliance, specifically compliance with the open source license obligations of the components that are used to build said containers. And this is where things get a bit murky. And complicated. And confusing.

This talk will shine a light on some of the challenges that today’s container technologies (specifically, the tooling for creating and packaging container images) bring to the topic of open source license compliance. I’ll show some of the obvious and not so obvious pitfalls, the concerns with the so called industry best practices and ideas how to work around them.
