Strengthening the security and integrity of infrastructure that all organizations and their clients depend on.

We are the Open Source Technology Improvement Fund, Inc. OSTIF is a corporate nonprofit founded with the mission to improve the long-term security and sustainability of critical open-source projects. OSTIF’s vision is to be a premier partner and advocate for advancing the security of open-source software. This is done mainly by helping organizations and communities gain access to better security resources. OSTIF has spent the last 5+ years developing a deep network of security experts, audit groups, corporate representatives, and FOSS advocates, all working to fulfill its mission.

OSTIF’s efforts have resulted in over 3,000 hours of audit work for critical open-source software. This security work has resulted in the patching of hundreds of security bugs, including over 20 Critical/High Impact bugs, impacting billions of users globally.

OSTIF is funded mainly by donations from corporate organizations, followed by individual contributors. We are extremely grateful to the over 25 organizations and countless other donors who have already supported us, and would love for you to join.

Partnership Process

It’s time to come together and take responsibility for open-source software.

OSTIF is leading the way by crowdsourcing good people and good ideas. Our work has resulted in countless hours of security research and bug patches, with billions of systems improved.

01 Donate
Corporate sponsorship is the most effective way to get involved. Simply provide funding and we take care of the rest, maximizing return and impact. Platinum sponsors steer the organization forward and get to earmark funds for specific projects.
02 Audit
OSTIF manages and completes the audit from start to finish. Source bids from multiple audit groups. Commission the best team to do the audit work. An in-depth audit with source code analysis and logic review is done, resulting in bug fixes, patches, and improvement to the code’s functionality and security.
03 Publish
After all fixes and improvements have been made to the software, we publish the results of the audit. Top sponsoring organizations get recognition on published audit work, resulting in significant coverage.
04 Result
Improved software means reduced risk, leaving the organization better equipped in preventing adverse events.
