Recently joined this program

As provided in OMB M-20-32 and DHS CISA BOD 20-01 (Sept. 2, 2020), Federal policy encourages good-faith research, discovery, and reporting of vulnerabilities in U.S. Government web sites and other internet-accessible systems or services.

Ratings/Rewards:

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.
