Building a more secure future with open source communities


Security is a responsibility we all share 和 a challenge that’s too big to face alone. It’s only through wide access to tools 和 data that we can move the security industry forward. After more than a decade of collaboration 和 support, we remain committed to the open source community. Because knowledge is power, especially when it’s shared.

Our communities thrive thanks to the input of professionals 和 users across the security industry. Help us get more knowledge out there – visit the links below to see how you can get involved.


Whether fostering long-st和ing communities or launching vibrant new ones, we support a range of open source projects with hundreds of thous和s of active contributors across the security industry:

The world's most used penetration testing framework

A collaboration between the open source community 和 Rapid7 since 2009, Metasploit helps security teams do more than just verify vulnerabilities, 管理安全评估, 和 improve security awareness; it empowers 和 arms defenders to always stay one step (or two) ahead of the game.

Open source network fingerprinting for hosts, services, 和 content

Faced with connected devices from toasters to laptops 和 the continued growth of shadow IT, it’s hard for security professionals to know everything that’s present in their ecosystems. They can’t identify something as a potential risk if they don’t know that it exists. Recog’s dynamic open source database of network fingerprints is here to help. Its active contributor community provides a clearer picture of every device, so security teams can address risk 和 move forward with confidence.

The security community’s forum for analyzing threats, because not all vulns are created equal

多年来, security researchers 和 development teams suffered for the lack of a community-driven venue to discuss, 分析, 优先考虑威胁. Rapid7 recognized this need 和 in 2020 we created AttackerKB to meet it. This community-driven platform empowers security professionals to exchange information about vulnerabilities so they can better underst和 the impact 和 likelihood of being exploited.

An open source platform for interrogating endpoints with speed 和 precision

具有坚实的体系结构, a library of customizable forensic artifacts 和 its own unique 和 flexible query language, 伶盗龙 lets security teams dig deeper, providing the next generation in endpoint monitoring, digital forensic investigations 和 cyber incident response. 作为一个开源平台, it continues to improve through input from professionals on the front lines.


Rapid7’s belief in the power of collaboration extends beyond our open source projects. From sharing cyber threat information in an instant to knocking down the barriers that impede security teams, we work with industry groups around the globe to empower the larger cybersecurity community.

The Cyber Threat Alliance (CTA) is a non-profit organization that works to enable near real-time, high-quality cyber threat information sharing among companies 和 organizations in the cybersecurity field. From his seat on the Board of 导演s, Rapid7 Chairman 和 CEO Corey Thomas works with the CTA to further their mission of protecting end users, 破坏恶意行为者, 和 elevating the overall security of the digital ecosystem.

开放网络安全联盟(OCA), OASIS开放项目, is building an open ecosystem where cybersecurity products interoperate without the need for customized integrations. By joining other industry leaders in OCA, Rapid7 aims to minimize the fragmented use of security tools 和 enable better collaboration between siloed teams, making powerful solutions even more accessible 和 impactful.
