The purpose of the Open Source Security (oss-security) group is to encourage public discussion of security flaws, concepts, and practices in the Open Source community. The members of this group include, but are not limited to Open Source projects, distributors, researchers, and developers.
Membership to this group is not formally restricted, but is targeted at Open Source Projects, Distributors, Researchers, and Developers.
Anyone can send mail to the mailing list at oss [dash] security [at] lists [dot] openwall [dot] com, regardless of membership status. Non-members, and new members will have their messages to the mailing list moderated to ensure that the discussions remain on topic and stay positive. Once a person has shown themselves to be a responsible community member, their messages to the list will no longer be moderated.
Anyone is welcome to subscribe to the mailing list by sending an empty message to oss [dash] security [dash] subscribe [at] lists [dot] openwall [dot] com or entering the e-mail address on the subscription page. You will be required to confirm your subscription by “replying” to the automated confirmation request that will be sent to you. You will be able to unsubscribe at any time and we will not use your e-mail address for any other purposes or share it with a third party. However, if you post to the list, other subscribers and those viewing the archives may see your address(es) as specified on your message.
Please note that registration on this wiki is distinct from mailing list subscription; you're not automatically subscribed when you register on the wiki.
A read-only archive of the discussions contained on the list is available to the general public locally, as well as via Gmane, MARC, and SecLists.Org (RSS feed). Additionally, you may follow oss_security on Twitter.
