Session: Open Source, DevOps, & Telework at the National Security Agency

The National Security Agency (NSA) is a highly technical agency employing a large number of software developers, engineers, and mathematicians. We have a rich history of contributing back to the open source software (OSS) community through projects like SELinux, NiFI, and Ghidra. Our journey to enable our developers to contribute to and release OSS is closely tied with how we support our developers as a whole and more recently how we can enable them to work from home. If you’re curious how NSA handles releasing OSS, what it takes to support a large technical workforce dealing with sensitive information, or how an intelligence agency thinks about telework, then this talk is for you!
