Software powers the world, but insecure software threatens safety, trust, and economic growth. The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) is dedicated to making application security visible by empowering individuals and organizations to make informed decisions about true application security risks.

OWASP boasts 46,000+ participants, more than 65 organizational supporters, and even more academic supporters.

As a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit worldwide charitable organization, OWASP does not endorse or recommend commercial products or services. Instead, we allow our community to remain vendor neutral with the collective wisdom of the best individual minds in application security worldwide. This simple rule is the key to our success since 2001.

Your individual and corporate membership powers the organization and helps us serve the mission. Please consider becoming an OWASP member today!

“At a time when malicious attacks are intensifying and organizations increasingly rely on applications with known and vulnerabilities to fulfill their missions, OWASP is a vital part of defending the integrity of businesses and institutions. We need strong DevOps and AppSec communities to ensure the safety and security of commerce. We’re proud to help OWASP fulfill that role.”
Brian Maccaba, CEO, Waratek

“Johnson Controls has been an innovator in the building and energy efficiency industry since Warren Johnson’s invention of the electric room thermostat over a century ago. With the functionality and efficiency that technology has brought to building controls devices the need for software security in embedded controls and the IoT is more apparent than ever. Johnson Controls leverages several OWASP projects to include the OWASP Top Ten and the Application Security Verification Standard (ASVS) and others. Partnering with OWASP is a logical step given our shared commitment to software security.”
