Our core development team consists solely of researchers and experienced developers. This is necessary to guarantee the quality of our software.
However, we welcome contributions in all forms from external parties and stress that such contributions range from pointing out unclear documentation and typos to reporting vulnerabilities.
If you wish to join the team and have the necessary credentials, then simply contact us. If you have the skills, but no formal credentials, then show that you are interested and when we see that you make worthwhile contributions we will include you.
We stress that the focus of this project is quality and that this not only applies to source code, but also documentation, examples, this site, etc. Thus, one can make worthwhile contributions without an academic background in security or even computer science.
