HackerOne Gateway

Organizations: Control hacker access at both a high and granular level

Updated over a week ago

This page refers to the new version of Gateway. For documentation of the Legacy Gateway solution, please refer to this page.

The HackerOne Gateway enables access to public and firewalled assets and allows IP whitelisting per program. It also provides the ability to control hacker access at both a high and granular level.

Gateway is available as an add-on. To learn more about adding HackerOne Gateway to your program, contact your account manager.

The asset types available for gateway are:

  • IP Address

  • CIDR

  • URL

  • Domain

  • Wildcard (only on the third level domain, e.g. *.acme.com).
