How HackerOne Challenge works

HackerOne Challenge is an invite-only, time-bound offensive testing engagement tapping into the world’s most expansive community of ethical hackers. HackerOne Challenge is curated to meet your individual use case, such as flagging specific vulnerability classes, testing newly released code, or validating security controls already in place.

HackerOne helps determine the scope of digital assets to be tested and helps define the required objective for the Challenge. From there, HackerOne takes point on inviting hackers, conducting tests, triaging results, and producing reports once the Challenge concludes.

Customized Offensive Testing

Meet security objectives relevant to your business

HackerOne Challenge is a vulnerability-hunting engagement, or time-bound bug bounty, customized to meet your particular security objectives. You determine the duration of the engagement, the assets that are in scope, and the specific skill set you need from the hacker community.

  • Work directly with a HackerOne Engagement Manager to specify the scope and desired outcomes for the Challenge.
  • Set the time frame for custom-tailored security testing—including 15-, 30-, or 60-day Challenges.

  • Select ID-verified and background-checked ethical hackers to analyze sensitive internal assets.
  • Communicate directly with HackerOne customer success for effective engagement management.
