Founded in January 2005, the PHP Security Consortium (PHPSC) is an international group of PHP experts dedicated to promoting secure programming practices within the PHP community. Members of the PHPSC seek to educate PHP developers about security through a variety of resources, including documentation, tools, and standards. [more…]


PHP Security Consortium work is organized into projects. These projects can consist of documentation, utilities, and any other resources that promote the Consortium’s mission.

Each month, we select a noteworthy project as our Project Spotlight. We also announce new projects and new releases of existing projects as they are completed.


In an effort to highlight sound security practices in PHP development, we publish articles that exhibit a high level of quality and accuracy. These articles can be written by members of the general PHP community but are subject to Consortium approval.

We also host a Library that contains links to approved external resources.

Project Spotlight: SecurityFocus Summaries

The SecurityFocus Summaries project, led by Daniel Convissor, is the first step in an effort to better inform the community about vulnerability discoveries in PHP and in applications that use PHP. The summaries are aggregated from the weekly SecurityFocus newsletters, and there is an XML Feed to which you can subscribe.
