The Tezos Foundation is pleased to announce the sponsorship of a bug bounty program that will be deployed and managed by HackerOne to steadily improve the overall security of Tezos.
HackerOne is a San Francisco-based cybersecurity company that partners with hackers from around the world to identify potential vulnerabilities.
From the outset, the code base underpinning the Tezos protocol has been engineered with security in mind. No system can be completely secure, but every system can be continuously improved towards that goal.
The HackerOne bug bounty program is the latest in a series of steps to support the security and stability of Tezos. Other recent initiatives include a code review by experienced researchers at Inria, the French National Institute for computer science and applied mathematics, and an audit by Least Authority, a firm specializing in source code security.
