Singapore launches bug bounty programme

12th December 2017 - 08:14 GMT | by Chen Chuanren in Singapore


Under a computer bug bounty programme, the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) has appointed American white hat hacker firm HackerOne to test the Ministry of Defence’s (MINDEF) internet-facing systems for vulnerabilities.

This scheme is the first by any Singaporean government agency and it will see about 100 local and 200 foreign white hat hackers testing MINDEF’s eight internet-facing websites. Rewards of SGD150 to SGD20,000 ($111-$14,800) are offered based on vulnerabilities discovered.

The project will run from 15 January to 4 February next year. Websites include those of MINDEF, the National Service Portal and Defence Science and Technology Agency.
