The Defense Digital Service (DDS) and HackerOne announced the launch of the DDS’s latest bug bounty program with HackerOne. It is the eleventh such program for DDS and HackerOne and the third with the U.S. Department of the Army.

Hack the Army 3.0 is a security test— time-bound and hacker-powered—aimed at revealing vulnerabilities so they can be resolved before they are exploited by adversaries. The bug bounty program will run from January 6, 2021, through February 17, 2021, and is open to both military and civilian participants.

Participation in Hack the Army 3.0 is open by invitation only to civilian hackers and active U.S. military members. Bug bounties will only be offered to civilian hackers for valid security vulnerabilities according to the program policy. Military and contractor personnel are not eligible to receive financial rewards.

Since the launch of “Hack the Pentagon” in 2016, the DDS has been a forerunner in hacker-powered security testing, and HackerOne has launched more federal programs than any other hacker-powered security provider thanks to their ongoing partnership with DDS.
