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.

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.
