BSA | The Software Alliance and other industry associations wrote to House and Senate armed services and oversight leaders expressing concern over Section 6722, which features the provision DHS Software Supply Chain Risk Management included in the House version of the NDAA.
The associations say the provision “is not sufficiently scoped nor does it account for current administration efforts regarding software bill of materials (SBOMs), or the readiness of software suppliers and consumers, including government customers, to fully leverage SBOMs.”
