We exist to empower all types of organizations by providing knowledge and resources so that they may properly detect, protect, and mitigate information security risks.
We believe that security information and services should be easily accessible for all who have the need for such information and services. We promote open collaboration between companies and individuals, provide unbiased information to uphold educated risk decision-making, and attempt to eliminate the need for redundant works.
OSVDB is one of many projects managed and funded by OSF. OSF is primarily sponsored by Risk Based Security, who ensures that vulnerability data is added in a timely fashion to all of the projects including OSVDB, DatalossDB, and Cloutage. Without them, OSVDB would no longer be operational. In addition, High-Tech Bridge SA has donated generously to assist us with continued vulnerability database management.
