Initiative Objective: Promote open source technologies within the security and data privacy areas.
Within the OW2 Privacy and Security Initiative, OW2 members and non-OW2 members are joining their efforts to develop and to promote open-source code and documentation about data integrity, data privacy and Cloud/IT security. These software, such as LemonLDAP::NG, are based on open standards and freely available on the OW2 code base.
Initiative Name: OW2 PRISi stands for PRIvacy and Security.
During OW2con'14, our panelists confirmed the importance of managing global security (infrastructure, authentication, data privacy, etc.) in each organization. Security is now central in many value propositions. A large bunch of professional services need embedded security to establish and maintain trust.
With applications running in the cloud, PC-based security solutions are not enough. We need to apply cryptography and authentication mechanisms to an open and collaborative world, where users are working from different places, with different devices. OW2 PRISi will contribute to develop open source privacy and security solutions, based on open standards.
Here are the first market segments that the OW2 initiative is currently investigating:
The following collaborative projects include open source security components. Do not hesitate to follow these links for more information:
All OW2 members and other involved stakeholders are invited to join and contribute, defining the scope and objectives, build the roadmap, and identify potentially interested third parties.
