About Wascap

Wascap is an open source project comprised of an open standard for WebAssembly module security and communications between a host runtime and guest modules, as well as implementations of signing and verification libraries for embedded JWTs, and finally host SDKs and guest SDKs to simplify the developer experience of building and hosting WebAssembly modules.

WebAssembly Belongs in the Cloud


We firmly believe that WebAssembly’s place is in the cloud, running as serverless functions or always-on microservices. Wascap’s mission is to provide a standard interface between a cloud native host runtime and WebAssembly guest modules that can simplify the developer experience, increase security, reduce cost, leverage WebAssembly’s portability, and hopefully even increase performance.
