The Open Information Security Foundation (OISF) is a non-profit foundation organized to build a next generation IDS/IPS engine. The OISF has formed a multi-national group of the leading software developers in the security industry. In addition to developers and a consortium consisting of leading cybersecurity companies, OISF has engaged the open source security community to identify actual and future IDS/IPS needs and desires. OISF’s primary goal is to remain on the leading edge of open source IDS/IPS development, community needs and objectives. This is only attainable if you, the community, get involved. They welcome participation large and small and have built working groups and mailing lists to engage and educate all interested people and organizations. Funding for the OISF comes from organizations within their community that form the OISF Consortium. These companies gain a non-gpl limited license and other benefits for the engine in return for their ongoing support. They run onsite and public training events, as well as an annual users conference. As OISF continues to build the community They are always on the lookout to take on additional open-source technologies and projects in the security sector.
