Major Commitment to Security and Stability
Additionally, our continued work with OpenSSF’s Project Alpha-Omega has granted funding for both Node.js and jQuery this year. Alpha-Omega is committing $300,000 to focus on improving supply chain security by improving Node.js security infrastructure. The funding is bolstering the Node.js security team and vulnerability remediation efforts, with a focus on supporting better open source security standards and practices. It was started in 2022 and renewed in 2023. Alpha-Omega is also committing another $350,000 to reduce potential security incidents for jQuery by helping modernize its consumers and its code. OpenJS, working with the jQuery maintainers and industry experts, will conduct an ecosystem risk audit, work on an expansion of its infrastructure modernization project, and build and promote a web modernization campaign for awareness and buy-in.
