You'll all want to pay attention to this launch. @feross is one of the smartest & most talented technologists I've gotten to know over the years, and he & the team @SocketSecurity have just launched something *essential*.
CEO and Co-Founder at Signal Sciences (acq. Fastly)
How do you track the validity of open source software libraries as they get updated? You're prob not. Check out @SocketSecurity and the updated tooling they launched.
Supply chain is a cluster in security as we all know and the tools from socket are "duh" type tools to be implementing. Check them out and follow Feross Aboukhadijeh to see more updates coming from them in the future.

Congrats to Feross Aboukhadijeh and the Socket team on the progress and capital raise to accelerate growth. Defending open source from supply chain attacks is key for the future of enterprise software and technological innovation!
Founder and GP at OSS Capital
Exciting work to improve OSS supply chain security by the exceedingly talented @feross 🙌🏼
Software Engineer at Retool
Really excited for this! Congrats on the ship @feross
Co-founder at Stellar Development Foundation
If what you are building needs to be secure and you use open-source, socket is a must!
Director of Technology at AppFolio, CTO at Dynasty
This is going to be super important, especially for crypto projects where a compromised dependency results in stolen user assets.

A brilliant initiative -- so, so needed.
Full-stack developer, Open source contributor
Security is such an issue with our software supply chains.
I'm thrilled to see tools that can catch the issues, before they destroy our projects, or even the whole business.
Founder at OpenDoor
Software supply-chain attacks are not talked about nearly enough. Socket is really cool and Feross gets this stuff better than anyone
Congrats to @feross and the entire @SocketSecurity team for launching socket.dev! It's great to have such a talented team tackling the software supply chain problem for the JS ecosystem in a scalable way 👏
Lead Engineer at Field33
Love seeing efforts like this! Tooling around package management has such a big leverage on ecosystem quality but is worked on far too rarely.
VP of Product at FemTec, Forbes 30 Under 30
Wow, this looks pretty incredible… and complete with snazzy js visualizations, ofc ✨✨✨
The NPM ecosystem is a horrible horrible place and I'm glad you're doing something about it.
Head of Security at Figma
The @SocketSecurity team is on fire! Amazing progress and I am exciting to see where they go next.
CISO at Lyft
This is an area that I have personally been very focused on. As Nat Friedman said in the 2019 GitHub Universe keynote, Open Source won, and every time you add a new open source project you rely on someone else code and you rely on the people that build it.
This is both exciting and problematic. You are bringing real risk into your organization, and I'm excited to see progress in the industry from OpenSSF scorecards and package analyzers to the company that Feross Aboukhadijeh is building!

Seriously, if you're working on web3-related open-source software please consider using @SocketSecurity. Supply chain attacks are becoming a real issue, especially if your code handles millions of dollars in value.
Btw. they just raised some money 🤑

Congrats to Socket on their launch! Feross Aboukhadijeh and the team are building incredibly cool tech to keep software safe from bad actors and I can think of few founders with as much drive and passion for what they do. [...]

Shout out to the @SocketSecurity team, anybody needing to write JS that touches cryptography probably ought to give them a look

choice project for the open source ecosystem <3
(and lovely people doing it)

congrats to @feross and the whole team at @SocketSecurity! supply chain security is an incredibly important issue, particularly in crypto...
Securing open-source supply chains is hard. socket.dev is trying to make it easier. Still very early stages, but excited to see what they come up with.
Congratulations! This is super exciting! Looking forward to all that you'll be able to do with your much more promising approach to security.
Principal Software Engineer at Elastic
Congrats 🎉 to my good friend @feross on the seed funding for @SocketSecurity 💰 Glad to see something happening in the supply chain attack prevention category!
