GSA Bounty

General Services Administration Bug Bounty Program

=====================

As a U.S. government agency, the General Services Administration (GSA) takes seriously our responsibility to protect the public's information, including financial and personal information, from unwarranted disclosure.

Security researchers should feel comfortable reporting vulnerabilities discovered, as defined in this policy, to afford GSA the opportunity to remediate the findings for the purpose of ensuring confidentiality, so we can fix them and keep our information safe.

The GSA looks forward to working with the security community to find vulnerabilities in order to keep our businesses and customers safe.

Philosophy

The GSA expects to evolve its structure over time and welcome feedback on areas for improvement. The following criteria guide our thinking:

  • Common Practices: Wherever it makes sense, the GSA desires to learn from and follow industry common practices in bounty programs. We will deviate only when there is a clear and specific need.

  • Competitive: We seek to provide competitive bounty amounts. Leveraging HackerOne platform data, new services will be introduced with median or higher reward levels and typically increase over time.

  • Open: Our intent is for each service to be open to public participation. We will start with private programs only as a stepping stone toward a publicly available program.

  • Responsive: The GSA is composed of many autonomous technical teams. Only teams that commit to and maintain positive levels of responsiveness to researchers will be included.

Vulnerability Disclosure Policy

Participation in this program is governed by the Vulnerability Disclosure Policy of the General Services Administration. Please fully review the linked policy prior to your participation.

Response Targets

GSA will make a best effort to meet the following SLAs for hackers participating in our program:

| Type of Response | SLA in business days |

| ------------- | ------------- |

| First Response | 1 day |

| Time to Triage | 2 days |

| Time to Bounty | 14 days |

| Time to Resolution | Depends on severity & complexity |

We’ll try to keep you informed about our progress throughout the process.

Disclosure Policy

  • Please do not discuss this program or any vulnerabilities (even resolved ones) outside of the program without express consent from the organization.

  • Follow HackerOne's disclosure guidelines.

Program Rules

Please provide detailed reports with reproducible steps. If the report is not detailed enough to reproduce the issue, the issue will not be eligible for a reward.

  • Submit one vulnerability per report, unless you need to chain vulnerabilities to provide impact.

  • When duplicates occur, we only award the first report that was received (provided that it can be fully reproduced).

  • Multiple vulnerabilities caused by one underlying issue will be awarded one bounty.

  • Social engineering (e.g. phishing, vishing, smishing) is prohibited.

  • Make a good faith effort to avoid privacy violations, destruction of data, and interruption or degradation of our service. Only interact with accounts you own or with explicit permission of the account holder.

Rewards

The bug bounty program of the General Services Administration is special in that it aims to cover numerous individual services that have been developed to address a diverse range of public use cases. Our strategy is to rotate services into scope at regular intervals. Our rewards are based on severity per CVSS (the Common Vulnerability Scoring Standard). Please note these are general guidelines, and reward decisions are up to the discretion of GSA.

Exclusions and known issues

Our goal with this program is to fix issues with meaningful impact. Thus, we exclude certain types of issues because they have low (or no) security impact to us, and/or are known issues that we're comfortable with. These issues are unlikely to be eligible for an award, and will usually be considered invalid for the purposes of our program:

When reporting vulnerabilities, please consider (1) attack scenario / exploitability, and (2) security impact of the bug.

The following issues are considered out of scope:

  • Violations of secure design principles that are not part of exploitable vulnerabilities.

  • Clickjacking on pages with no sensitive actions.

  • Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) on unauthenticated forms or forms with no sensitive actions

  • Logout CSRF

  • Attacks requiring MITM or physical access to a user's device.

  • Previously known vulnerable libraries without a working Proof of Concept.

  • Comma Separated Values (CSV) injection without demonstrating a vulnerability.

  • Missing best practices in SSL/TLS configuration.

  • Any activity that could lead to the disruption of our service (DoS).

  • Content spoofing and text injection issues without showing an attack vector/without being able to modify HTML/CSS

  • Rate limiting or brute-force issues on non-authentication endpoints

  • HTTP OPTIONS/TRACE methods enabled.

  • Missing best practices in Content Security Policy.

  • HTTP/TLS configuration issues without demonstrable impact, such as:

    • TLS configuration issues such as BEAST, BREACH, renegotiation attacks, insecure cipher suites, etc.

    • Missing HTTP security headers

    • Lack of Secure or HTTPOnly cookie flag.

    • Missing best practices in SSL/TLS configuration.

  • Missing email best practices (Invalid, incomplete or missing SPF/DKIM/DMARC records, etc.)

  • Vulnerabilities only affecting users of outdated or unpatched browsers [Less than 2 stable versions behind the latest released stable version]

  • Software version disclosure / Banner identification issues / Descriptive error messages or headers (e.g. stack traces, application or server errors).

  • Public Zero-day vulnerabilities that have had an official patch for less than 1 month will be awarded on a case by case basis.

  • Tabnabbing

  • Open redirect - unless an additional security impact can be demonstrated

  • Issues that require unlikely user interaction

  • Reports about missing rate limiting where other mitigations exist (for example, brute force attacks against login pages already protected by MFA).

  • Username enumeration on login or forgot password pages.

  • Overly broad permissions on editing wikis (or other non-software non-production areas) associated with our source code repositories.

  • Use of a known-vulnerable library without evidence of exploitability

Presence (or absence) of application/browser autocomplete or save-password flags.

  • Lack of "security speedbumps" when leaving sites/applications.

  • Non-sensitive information disclosure (i.e., server versions, software stack, etc) on error message pages, 404 pages, and so forth.
