HackerOne's testing methodologies

Updated over a week ago

HackerOne's testing methodologies are grounded in the principles of the OWASP Top 10, Penetration Testing Execution Standard (PTES), Open Source Security Testing Methodology (OSSTM), and are tailored to various assessment types including Web Application, API, Mobile (iOS and Android), External Network, and Internal Network.

Our methodology is more than just a list of best practices; it's a dynamic, continuously-evolving approach that ensures comprehensive and deep coverage for each engagement. This approach stems from:

  • Consultations with both internal and external industry experts.

  • Leveraging and adhering to recognized industry standards.

  • Gleaning insights from a vast array of global client programs, spanning both time-bound and ongoing engagements.

  • Detailed analysis of millions of vulnerability reports we receive through our platform (see Hacktivity page for details).

With an ever-evolving landscape of threats, our methodology isn't stagnant. HackerOne’s Assessments delivery and security advisory services (SAS) teams constantly refine and adapt based on feedback and real-world experiences, delivering unparalleled security assurance.
