SUMMARY


The OWASP Foundation came online on December 1st 2001 it was established as a not-for-profit charitable organization in the United States on April 21, 2004 to ensure the ongoing availability and support for our work at OWASP.  OWASP is an international organization and the OWASP Foundation supports OWASP efforts around the world.  OWASP is an open community dedicated to enabling organizations to conceive, develop, acquire, operate, and maintain applications that can be trusted.  All of the OWASP tools, documents, forums, and chapters are free and open to anyone interested in improving application security. We advocate approaching application security as a people, process, and technology problem because the most effective approaches to application security include improvements in all of these areas. We can be found at www.owasp.org.

OWASP is a new kind of organization. Our freedom from commercial pressures allows us to provide unbiased, practical, cost-effective information about application security.  OWASP is not affiliated with any technology company, although we support the informed use of commercial security technology. Similar to many open-source software projects, OWASP produces many types of materials in a collaborative, open way. The OWASP Foundation is a not-for-profit entity that ensures the project's long-term success.

Since it’s inception as a repository for application security knowledge and information – OWASP has grown into a haven for security research tools and libraries aimed at helping organization improve the application security stance. Our current infrastructure was designed around providing information in wiki format, which does not give us the tools necessary to manage our tools and library projects in a cohesive reliable manner.

The OWASP Global Projects Committee is currently looking for proposals to provide a cohesive project hosting framework for developers and users.
