Open Source License Risk Profiles
Using Open Source components makes your development team deliver software faster, but also comes with potential legal risks on license types that these OSS components use. Depending on your application context (distributed, mobile, embedded, etc.), some license types have more legal & operational consequences, while others are more flexible. CAST Highlight detects 350+ Open Source licences comes with out-of-the-box and commonly adopted license risk profiles that help you quickly identify if your applications use risky license types. See below.
NOTE: Some Open Source components have no license declared or detected by our license matching algorithm. You’ll see them under the ‘NOASSERTION’ tag.
