Ethical Hacking Bug Bounty Course
Basic knowledge of Linux
Bug bounty programs authorize independent security experts to report bugs to a company in exchange for rewards or compensation. These bugs can include security exploits, vulnerabilities, process issues, hardware flaws, etc.
The reports of detected bugs are typically made through programs that are run by independent third parties. These kinds of programs are primarily curated for a company’s requirements.
The program may be public where anyone can sign up; they may also be private or invite-only for confidentiality purposes. The program can take place over a set duration or, commonly, with no end date.
Who Uses Bug Bounty Programs?
Large companies, including Apple, Android, AOL, Digital Ocean, Goldman Sachs, etc., use bug bounty programs as a part of their security program. A list of all the programs offered by bug bounty providers, such as HackerOne and Bugcrowd, can be viewed on their websites.
