Open Source Software (OSS) is computer software whose source code is available to the general public with relaxed or non-existent intellectual property restrictions (or arrangement such as the public domain) and is usually developed with the input of many contributors. In the security space, this type of development also brings the expertise of multiple persons to bear on the design and architecture of a software program, making it robust and capable of doing the job for which it is being designed. The openly viewable nature of the source of a program means that if possible problems are found, they can be quickly addressed and altered to adapt, again with the supervision of more than one company / programming team.
