The Atlas chapter on community discusses the open source software debate and its implications for security. Proponents of open source believe the best way to test a system’s security is to make the source code freely available and let hackers seek out weak points. Anti-open-sourcers think this increases vulnerability. Where do you stand in the open-source debate and why? How does a library taking one stance or the other impact the community it serves?
