Branding Guidelines

Changes to Guidelines Wording

Current Wording of guideline #3:

"3. The OWASP Brand may be used by OWASP Members in good standing to promote a person or company's involvement in OWASP."

We propose changing the wording of guideline #3 to:

"3. The OWASP Brand may be used by OWASP Members in good standing to acknowledge a person or company's support of The OWASP Foundation."

We updated the Branding Guidlines section to include the word "endorses" under item 6. so that it now reads:

"6. The OWASP Brand must not be used in a manner that suggests that The OWASP Foundation supports, advocates, endorses, or recommends any particular product or technology."

Non-Endorsement Statement

We also added a Non-Endorsement statement as follows:

Statement of Non-Endorsement

OWASP does not endorse any product, services or tools. The following disclaimer/About OWASP text can be used in projects or press releases that reference external products, services or tools:

About the OWASP Foundation: The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) is a 501(c)(3) worldwide not-for-profit charitable organization focused on improving the security of software. Our mission is to make software security visible, so that individuals and organizations worldwide can make informed decisions about true software security risks. Everyone is free to participate in OWASP and all of our materials are available under a free and open software license. You'll find everything about OWASP linked from our wiki and current information on our OWASP Blog. OWASP does not endorse or recommend commercial products or services, allowing our community to remain vendor neutral with the collective wisdom of the best minds in software security worldwide. We ask that the community look out for inappropriate uses of the OWASP brand including use of our name, logos, project names and other trademark issues.


Suggested rewrite of this statement:

We ask that the community look out for inappropriate uses of the OWASP brand including use of our name, logos, project names and other trademark issues.
