HackerOne Challenge combines highly-structured, best practice-driven coverage testing with unstructured vulnerability assessment testing to test specific attack vectors and discover high-impact vulnerabilities.

Our pentesting methodology covers the OWASP Top 10, includes additional coverage testing for specific vectors, such as Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF), and aligns with NIST SP 800-115 and the OWASP Testing Guide v4.

Our hacker selection process ensures selecting hackers with the right experience and skill sets utilizing a process for selecting researchers based on performance, experience, proven results, and skill to perfectly match to your objectives.

We offer multiple reporting options to satisfy your specific needs.
