OpenLogic's Application Certification service is an extension of the Application Audit service, which gives enterprises a fast and simple way to audit software applications for embedded open source software packages and licenses. The Application Certification service takes application auditing one step further by providing certification from OpenLogic that an application has been scanned for open source software and licenses, and that all open source license obligations have been met.
Companies that distribute software – or products containing software – to their customers or partners can leverage the Application Certification service to provide verification that steps have been taken to ensure open source license compliance. Certification from OpenLogic can also be used to avoid customer objections, create positive publicity, and avoid potential litigation.
OpenLogic's Application Certification service gives enterprises as well as their investors and customers confidence that all necessary steps have been taken to comply with open source license obligations. The Application Certification service includes a thorough review all license obligations for all embedded open source licenses, including:
Like OpenLogic's Application Audit service, the Application Certification service is available on a one-time or recurring (subscription) basis. Once the review is complete and all license obligations have been certified, OpenLogic provides written certification of the application as well as a graphic badge that can be included on the vendor's website. Subscription customers receive certification from OpenLogic at the conclusion of every Application Audit engagement.
