Akeyless provides an innovative Secrets Orchestration Platform that successfully unifies several related use cases via a single solution. It offers secrets management, zero-trust access (PAM 2.0) and data protection (encryption, signing and KMS), based on Akeyless DFC™ , the firm’s unique virtual HSM FIPS-certified technology.

For this program, we're inviting researchers to test Akeyless's web applications and services - with a focus of identifying security weaknesses that might lead to the compromise of our customer data (mainly, job Akeylessers profiles and resumes).

Thank you for participating!

A Few Important Requirements for Akeyless:

  • Denial of Service, Rate Limiting, and other automated attacks are not allowed. Please do NOT use automated tooling when conducting testing on Akeyless assets.
  • All testing must be conducted using your @bugcrowdninja.com email ID only. If you fail to use your @bugcrowdninja.com email ID, you run the risk of getting blocked from accessing Akeyless applications.


For the initial prioritization/rating of findings, this program will use the Bugcrowd Vulnerability Rating Taxonomy. However, it is important to note that in some cases a vulnerability priority will be modified due to its likelihood or impact. In any instance where an issue is downgraded, a full, detailed explanation will be provided to the researcher - along with the opportunity to appeal, and make a case for a higher priority.

To maximize your reward and payout time frame, please make sure to include the following in your report:

  • An attack scenario: What is the most likely way an attacker could abuse this vulnerability?
  • Clear reproduction steps: If we can't easily replicate what you are describing, we may not consider the issue as serious.
  • Recommended fix: If you have any good ideas on ways to mitigate the risk without impacting normal users, your submission will have more value.

Target Info:
Domains outside of *.Akeyless.io typically have less impact for Akeyless, and thus may impact the reward amount.
