Xeol Joins Forces with OWASP

We at Xeol are excited to announce our new role as a corporate supporter of the OWASP Foundation. Since its establishment in 2001, OWASP has significantly impacted application security. Its primary mission is to improve software security through its open community model, which includes developing free articles, methodologies, documentation, tools, and technologies. A key contribution is the OWASP Top 10, a standard for identifying and mitigating common application vulnerabilities.

OWASP and Supply Chain Security

OWASP has contributed to several standards related to software supply chain security, including CycloneDX, which is the software bill of materials (SBOM) format used by our open-source tool for EOL software detection (https://github.com/xeol-io/xeol)

They have also created the Software Component Verification Standard (SCVS), which is a community-driven effort to establish a framework for identifying activities, controls, and best practices, which can help in identifying and reducing risk in a software supply chain.

The Significance of Being a Corporate Supporter

For Xeol, becoming an OWASP corporate supporter is more than a financial contribution. It signifies our commitment to actively shaping future software security standards like CycloneDX and SCVS. OWASP membership enables Xeol to influence and stay informed about the latest in application security.

Final Notes

Partnering with OWASP is a significant milestone for Xeol. It reflects our public commitment to the information security industry and supports OWASP projects' funding. As a long-standing cornerstone for developers, engineers, and security professionals, we are thrilled to partner with OWASP for a safer future.

Please consider donating, joining, or becoming a Corporate Member of OWASP as well!
