Thank you in advance for thinking of me on this topic Kelly.

Seeing that OWASP Foundation is a vendor agnostic collective of global
application security individuals we have no offical comment on the
commercial endevors or litigation claims of these companies.

We thank both of these vendors for continued support of OWASP Foundation and
assisting in our goal of raising application security awareness globally.

 Hey Tom,

How are things?

I was hoping to get your OWASP perspective on this lawsuit F5 has filed vs.
Imperva over a patented technology of F5's that it alleges is used in
Imperva's Secure Sphere:


Is this the first patent lawsuit in Web app sec?

Anyway, would love to chat for a few minutes either by phone or email today.
I have to file by 5:30pm ET.


Best regards,
