The European Union’s Parliament and Council have reached an agreement on the Cyber Resilience Act (CRA), setting the long-awaited security regulation on a path to final approval and adoption, along with new rules exempting open source software.

The CRA was proposed by the European Commission in September 2022 and imposes mandatory cyber security requirements for all hardware and software products – from baby monitors to routers, as the EU Commission put it.

Once in force, which will happen 20 days after its adoption by Parliament and the Council, the CRA will require hardware and software makers to meet some intimidating targets. Included in the rule is a 24-hour disclosure period for any newly-discovered security flaw under active exploitation, five years of security patch support, thorough documentation of all security features, and more.
