Free security for open source projects

Open source maintainers are changing the world. Snyk wants to say “thank you” the best way we know how: free open source security.

Let’s keep open source secure together

Snyk was founded on empowering developers to use open source securely. We believe in the power of the open source development model and understand how important it is to the future of development. This is why we are so proud to offer free, expanded use of our tools to open source maintainers — including unlimited scans of your source code, libraries, containers, IaC files, and Kubernetes deployments.

Making free security more free

Snyk has always offered individual developers free access to our core tools and vulnerability database. Now we’re offering even more to OSS maintainers.

Unlimited scans

Go from 700 free scans to “as many as you want” free scans.

License compliance

Keep tabs on all of the licenses for your project’s dependencies.

Project reporting

Gain high-level visibility into your security issues over time, across all repos.

Advanced features

Get access to features like service accounts, RBAC, and more.

Secure your OSS projects for free: Submit your project for validation and our Developer Relations team will get back to you ASAP.
