What is the OWASP Foundation?
The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) is a nonprofit foundation that works to improve the security of software. Through community-led open source software projects, over 260 local chapters worldwide, tens of thousands of members, and leading educational and training conferences, the OWASP Foundation is the source for developers and technologists to secure the web. Join us for:
- Tools and Resources
- Community and Networking
- Education & Training
ZAP is a free, easy to use integrated penetration testing tool which now includes a Heads Up Display. Easily used by security professionals and developers of all skill levels, users can quickly and more easily find security vulnerabilities in their applications. Given the unique and integrated design of the Heads Up Display, developers new to security testing will find ZAP an indispensable tool to build secure software. Learn more about ZAP.
One of our oldest and most active chapters, the Bay Area is host to three local OWASP chapters north, east and south bay. North Bay meets in the city monthly and often draws both startups and established Silicon Valley icons to their meetings. Last month their meeting was hosted at Mozilla’s event space at Embarcadero where the security team from Salesforce shared learnings on testing.
