Team & Tasks

OpenVAS is a community project carried out by volunteers. Many of the volunteers are IT and/or security professionals with many years of experience in their job. We also have many students participating in our project who learn about security scanning and add valuable new ideas.

OpenVAS Steering Team

OpenVAS Maintainer Team

The following table lists all the tasks that are done by the volunteers. Please feel free to apply for one or more of the tasks that are marked vacant. The time commitment for any of these tasks is non-trivial. This is balanced with honour and gratitude - if that means anything to you, you are very welcome to join.

Maintainers or Co-Maintainers shown emphasized are positions looking for someone to take over.
