I think this tool is super and I wanna use it at Danish Foreign Ministry on report designer machines. However Ministry says because its open source it cannot be approved as secure.

Can you give som info on how to deal with this issue in real life ?

It's a fair concern, but because it's open source, have their IT group study the source code and approve it. That's my suggestion. If they want to go as far as compiling it themselves from source code they've approved, then do it.

I have only run into this issue in a couple of places. Not sure I have any better suggestions.

If anybody else has feedback, please chime in.
