Open Source Technology Improvement Fund Inc

OSTIF advocates for critical open source projects. We make an impact by improving the open source software that the internet and networks depend on. After coordinating a source code audit of VeraCrypt (secure encryption) and shortly afterwards OpenVPN (secure browsing), OSTIF led the discovery and patching of 9 high severity/critical bugs, coordinated over 1700 hours of security review, and furnished 2 audit reports (post patching). Furthermore, OSTIF launched a bug bounty program to ensure continued review of the software. Lastly, OSTIF has created educational guides helping people take control of their information and securing it accordingly.
