OISF provides architecture and infrastructure to open source security software communities and to projects like Suricata, the world-class threat-detection engine. As the need for robust and relevant security technologies grows, OISF serves to protect and maintain the authenticity of open source space. We welcome participation from diverse groups to generate networks and build active communities. We strengthen our communal space by offering user and developer training sessions around the world. OISF hosts SuriCon, the dynamic annual OISF/Suricata User Conference which gives our entire community a unique opportunity to collaborate together.
OISF is funded by donations from world-class security organizations committed to our mission. A list of these organizations is available on our Consortium Members page.
