Roberto Di Cosmo, professor of Computer Science at University Paris Diderot and founder of the Software Heritage Initiative, discusses the reasons for and challenges of the long-term archiving of publicly available software. SE Radio’s Gavin Henry spoke with Di Cosmo about a wide range of topics, including the selection of storage solutions, efficiently storing objects, graph databases, cryptographic integrity of archives, and protecting mirrored data from local legislation changes over time. They explore details such as ZFS, CEPH, Merkle graphs, object databases, the Software Heritage ID registered format, and why archiving our software heritage is so important. They further consider how to use certain techniques to validate and secure your software supply chain and how the timing of projects has a great impact on what is possible today.
