Course Description

Software Composition Analysis (SCA) provides visibility into the open-source components and libraries being incorporated into the software that development teams create. SCA can help manage security and license-related risks. This course provides learners with a fundamental understanding of how to use Software Composition Analysis (SCA) tools to securely integrate open-source software into new code.
