VULNERABILITY DISCLOSURE POLICY

Revised September 2018

1. Purpose

This policy establishes the requirements for reporting and resolving security vulnerabilities. We are committed to resolving vulnerabilities to meet the needs of our customers and the broader technology community. This document describes policy for receiving reports related to potential security vulnerabilities in our products and services and the company’s standard practice with regards to informing customers of verified vulnerabilities. 

2. When to contact the security emergency response team

Contact SecureAuth’s Computer Security Emergency Response Team (CSERT) by submitting a request via our secure support web portal at https://support.secureauth.com using the “Product Vulnerability Report Form” or the “Service Vulnerability Report Form” in the following situations:

•You have identified a potential security vulnerability with one of our products; or  

•You have identified a potential security vulnerability with one of our services.

After your report is received, the appropriate personnel will contact you to follow-up.

To ensure confidentiality, we strongly encourage you to use the secure support web portal to exchange any sensitive information updates related to the report.

The “Product Vulnerability Report Form” and “Service Vulnerability Report Form” are intended ONLY for the purposes of reporting product or service security vulnerabilities. They are not for technical support information on our products or services. For technical and customer support inquiries, please submit a request using the applicable service ticket type.

We attempt to acknowledge receipt to all submitted reports within seven (7) days. 

3. When to contact the security emergency response team

Technical security information about our products and services is distributed through several channels.

a.  We distribute information to customers about security vulnerabilities via e-mail to registered support contacts as defined in our support policy. In most cases, we will issue a notice when we have identified a practical workaround or fix for the particular security vulnerability though there can be instances when we issue a notice in the absence of a workaround when the vulnerability has become widely known to the security community.

b.  Because each security vulnerability case is different, we can take alternative actions in connection with issuing security notices or Advisories. We may determine to accelerate or delay the release of a notice or not issue a notice at all. We do not guarantee that security notices will be issued for any or all security issues that customers may consider significant or that notices will be issued on any specific timetable.

c.  Security-related information may also be distributed by us to public newsgroups or electronic mailing lists. This is done on an ad hoc basis, depending on how we perceive the relevance of each notice to each particular forum.

d.  We also work with the formal incident response community to distribute information. Many security notices are distributed by various independent advisory groups at the same time that they are sent through our information distribution channels.  

All aspects of this process are subject to change without notice, as well as for case-by-case exceptions. No particular level of response is guaranteed for any specific issue or class of issues.
