The Software Package Data Exchange specification is a standard format used to document information on the software licenses under which a given piece of computer software is distributed.
The SPDX standard helps facilitate compliance with free and open source software licenses by standardizing the way license information is shared across the software supply chain. SPDX reduces redundant work by providing a common format for companies and communities to share important data about software licenses and copyrights, thereby streamlining and improving compliance.
