= OWASP Membership Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)  =
 +
 
 +
== My organization is not in a position to contribute monetarily, but we would like to contribute technical services. Is there a way for us to be involved?  ==
  
='''OWASP Membership Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)'''=
+
Technology Supporter designations are available for organizations who make valuable in-kind donations of technology support services. Please contact your local Chapter Leader if you would like to become a Chapter Supporter in this manner or contact the Global Membership Committee if you would like to become an Organizational Supporter.
  
== Why Should I Become An OWASP Member? ==
+
<br>
  
OWASP provides documentation, tools, methodologies, standards, articles, and message forums (“OWASP Materials”) as a service to Internet users worldwide to help users and developers understand more about application security. OWASP makes these materials available to end users to help them acquire, build, test, and operate secure software. In addition to the benefits you receive as described above, your membership helps to support the growth of OWASP and the development of new and improved OWASP Materials. Because we are an open, non-commercial entity, we can take on projects that commercial entities driven by profit motives could not. Everyone benefits from these projects. Your support will help OWASP continue to find and fight the causes of insecure software.
+
== I’m an active (chapter leader, project leader, committee member). Does that mean I’m an OWASP Honorary Member and get to vote?  ==
  
== How Are Funds Used? ==
+
No. During the 2009 election, OWASP Honorary Memberships were granted to all historical chapter leaders, project leaders and committee members, but those honorary memberships have expired.  We ask that you please become an OWASP Individual Member [http://www.regonline.com/owasp_membership Join Here] to support OWASP.  Alternately, you may also request a new OWASP Honorary Membership by submitting the following form [https://spreadsheets.google.com/a/owasp.org/spreadsheet/viewform?hl=en_US&formkey=dHA4dno2TlhSa0pVSUNQclZCOWROV0E6MQ#gid=0 CLICK HERE]  with a description of your recent activities in support of OWASP. We thank you for your ongoing support of OWASP and we require this for being able to track these requests from individuals around the world.
  
OWASP is a 501c3 not-for-profit foundation, and all funds go directly to support OWASP projects, chapters, and infrastructure. Our funds come from conferences, memberships, advertising, and individual contributions.
+
== My organization supports OWASP, but the $5,000 USD as a donation per year to become a Global Supporter is too expensive. What options are available?  ==
  
== Who Must Become an OWASP Member? ==
+
A great way to participate in OWASP is to support your local chapter. Please look into becoming a Chapter Supporter at the level where you feel comfortable. This will allow you to support OWASP’s mission and help promote a vibrant application security community in your area. Hopefully in the future you will be in a position to become a global Organizational Supporter.
  
Memberships are not required to use OWASP materials under each project's open source license. Also, anyone can participate in or contribute to an OWASP project without becoming a member. Membership provides a [[OWASP commercial license|commercial license]] to all OWASP Materials for your entire organization. This license will ensure that you can modify, use, and bundle OWASP Materials in applications and documents under a single commercial license. Your membership fees are what make the various OWASP projects possible.

To become an OWASP Member, an individual or organization must:
+
== How Are Funds Used?  ==
Agree to the terms and conditions of the OWASP Membership Agreement.
 
Pay the appropriate membership fee, depending on what type of OWASP Membership is indicated. (See top of page for both)
 
Keep OWASP updated with accurate contact and business profile information.
 
Enrollment as an OWASP Member is required before a commercial license to use the materials is established. The term of the agreement is one year from the date of execution.
 
  
== What is OWASP’s licensing model? ==

OWASP is a 501c3 not-for-profit foundation, and all funds go directly to support OWASP projects, grants, chapters, and infrastructure. Our funds come from conferences, memberships, advertising, and individual and organization supporter contributions. For more information on how funds are utilzed [https://www.owasp.org/index.php/OWASP_Foundation Click Here]
  
OWASP uses a "dual licensing" business model. OWASP Materials are offered under two types of licenses. Anyone can use OWASP materials under the [http://www.opensource.org/ approved open source license] associated with each project. Members, however, may also use the OWASP materials under the [[OWASP Commercial License]]. Both have full access to the entire range of OWASP Materials and include all source code and documentation.

*'''Open Source Licenses''': Each OWASP project is licensed under one of the [http://www.opensource.org/ approved open source licenses], such as the GPL, LGPL, and GFDL. Under these licenses, you may be required to contribute changes back to the open source community at large, according to the terms of the applicable open source license.

*'''Commercial License for Members''': Members in good standing have the right to use the OWASP Materials under the [[OWASP Commercial License]]. This is a single license that grants access to all OWASP Materials to an individual member or an entire organization.
 
  
== Why does OWASP offer two licenses? ==
+
== What is OWASP’s licensing model? ==
  
OWASP's dual license model allows individuals and organizations the option to use a single license for all OWASP projects. The [[OWASP Commercial License]] is free from open source terms that may restrict a member's use of the materials and may require legal analysis. The OWASP membership program is also the best way for organizations to support what OWASP does. As a not-for-profit foundation, OWASP channels all membership fees back into support for its open source user community that, in turn, supports OWASP’s members.
+
*'''Open Source Licenses''': Each OWASP project is licensed under one of the [http://www.opensource.org/ approved open source licenses], such as the GPL, LGPL, GFDL, and BSD. Under these licenses, you may be required to contribute changes back to the open source community at large, according to the terms of the applicable open source license.
  
== Do I get the same OWASP Materials under either license? ==
 
  
Yes. The OWASP Materials are essentially identical under either license option.

<center> [http://www.regonline.com/owasp_membership https://www.owasp.org/images/b/ba/Joinorrenew.png] </center>
  
== With a commercial license option, is OWASP still an "open source" organization? ==
+
== How do I get my logo posted? ==
  
Yes, OWASP is an open source organization and is completely committed to open source values and philosophies. All of the OWASP Materials are offered for no cost and with all source code. We believe the open source model of development and distribution is the most efficient way to produce high-quality documentation, tools, and other materials. All OWASP Materials are offered under both open source and commercial license terms.

Yes, the dual licensing business model is well established among open source organizations as it paves the way for long-term financial viability. Other companies that offer dual licensing include MySQL, Red Hat, Digium, OSAF, MandrakeSoft, Sleepycat Software, Technical Pursuit, Trolltech, and others.

OWASP Membership Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Why Should I Become An OWASP Member or Organization Supporter

OWASP provides documentation, tools, methodologies, standards, articles, and message forums (“OWASP Materials”) as a service to Internet users worldwide to help users and developers understand more about application security. OWASP makes these materials available to end users to help them acquire, build, test, and operate secure software. In addition to the benefits you receive as described above, your membership helps to support the growth of OWASP and the development of new and improved OWASP Materials. Because we are an open, non-commercial entity, we can take on projects that commercial entities driven by profit motives could not. Everyone benefits from these projects. Your support will help OWASP continue to find and fight the causes of insecure software.
