I'm looking for a name/adjective to refer a software resource that is both free to access and safe to use from a security point of view.
The term is going to name the group of such resources in an operating system.
As an example think of *nix files like
So far the best I've found are
With "commons" I link these resources to the common lands, as they are owned collectively by a number of persons; indeed Merriam-Webster dictionary defines "common" as "belonging to or shared by two or more individuals or things or by all members of a group".
I'm not a native English speaker, so I'm not sure "commons" is appropriate, but "public" is usually opposed to "private" and in this scenario this is not what I want to express.
Is there another term I should use? Or is "commons" just right?
