Short Biography:

Amy Zwarico is a lead member of technical staff at AT&T specializing in software and open source security. She has PhD in Computer Science from the University of Pennsylvania and has worked in the telco industry for 25 years, beginning with BellSouth and then with AT&T, where she developed web based integrations to BSS/OSS systems, architected mobility systems, and for the past 19 years focused on application security, cloud security, applied cryptography and policy.

She has been a member of ONAP since 2017 serving on the security subcommittee (SECCOM) as a contributor and as the vice chair. She has helped drive community acceptance of Core Infrastructure Initiative (CII) badging, a prioritized approach to upgrading vulnerable packages within the ONAP code base, and inclusion of security testing in the integration pipeline. She consistently solicits feedback from the PTLs and ONAP developers to help SECCOM define realistic security goals for each release. She also is lead for the VNF security requirements.

She joined the O-RAN Alliance in 2020 and is a contributor to the Security Focus Group. She is focused on defining security controls for the O-RAN interfaces and helping the O-RAN Software Community adopt the secure development practices used by the ONAP community. She also contributed security requirements to CNTT.

Statement of Intent:

If elected, I will use my experience in ONAP and O-RAN to work with LFN leadership, advocate for the technical contributors, and find areas of collaboration between projects to drive the LFN mission of producing enterprise grade open source software for network infrastructure and services.
