In constant contact with its community of security researchers, YesWeHack has noted that it is complex for a security researcher and therefore, for a whistle-blower to report security flaws -in a
coordinated way – to impacted organizations. Especially if those organizations do not have a Bug Bounty program registered on BountyFactory.io !
Vulnerability discoverers often experience difficulties on how to report them to the organizations concerned without disclosing them to a third party and unfortunately direct contact with companies constitutes a legal risk.
A long-time partner of the security research community through its founders, YesWeHack launches ZeroDisclo.com.
This platform provides the technical means and the required environment for all to adopt the coordinated reporting of vulnerabilities commonly known as “Coordinated Vulnerability Disclosure“.
The platform, which can be accessed directly or via the Tor network, offers any Internet user the opportunity to report a vulnerability to CERTs™ via an on-line form, providing the necessary information to understand and evaluate its severity through its CVSS score. The researcher can then choose to remain anonymous or provide his identity if he/she wishes to be contacted, or even thanked in return.
The report will be encrypted via OpenPGP plus the key of the CERT™ in the very browser, time-stamped, signed by the Blockchain and forwarded automatically to the CERTs™ chosen from an exhaustive list.
In exchange, the researcher receives a certificate attesting to his/her submission.
Currently, the CERTs™ selected by ZeroDisclo.com are the CERT-EU, CERT-FR, and the CERT-UBIK created by Digital Security dedicated to the Internet of things. Moreover, organizations can subscribe to ZeroDisclo.com in order to monitor in real time, the flaws concerning their systems and -if necessary- to contact the relevant CERTs™ in order to know the details.
ZeroDisclo.com aims at empowering the community, for security researchers to prove their good faith. ZeroDisclo.com offers an efficient and ethical alternative to services disclosing vulnerabilities on the Internet and on the black market.
Founded in 2013, YesWeHack connects organizations or projects with IT security needs with skilled people.
4 interdependent platforms are available:
– YesWeHack Jobboard: the first job site specializing in computer security.
– Bounty Factory: Bug Bounties’ first European platform.
– FireBounty: Bug Bounties aggregator.
