Debian’s Solution on Making Software Trustworthy is Reproducible Builds

Debian’s J??r??my Bobbio came with the proposal of introducing reproducible builds for all of the software packages (over 22,000) available in the software repositories of the Debian GNU/Linux operating system to get a verifiable path from source to binary. The proposal came after Edward Snowden revealed the fact that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) compromised the build process of Apple’s binaries by injecting backdoors during compilation without the developers’ knowledge.
