IBM, McAfee, and 16 more firms have launched an effort to address fragmentation and interoperability problems in cybersecurity, by linking market products via the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS) consortium.

Each member of the Open Cybersecurity Alliance (OCA) has agreed to contribute cybersecurity resources to "develop open source security technologies which can freely exchange information, insights, analytics, and orchestrated responses."

OCA goals include the development of open source content, code, tools, and practices aimed at enhancing the interoperability of cybersecurity solutions.

Two OCA projects are currently underway: IBM Security's STIX-Shifter, aimed at developing a search function for cybersecurity solutions through an open source, standardized cybersecurity data model/library, and a McAfee initiative to create an interoperable messaging format backed by the OpenDXL messaging bus.
