The European Commission launches a public call for tenders seeking bug bounty platform providers for its EU-FOSSA 2 project

From 14 April 2018 until 24 May 2018 companies providing bug bounty platforms can apply to run the EU-FOSSA 2 bug bounties later this year.

Using the call for tenders, the Commission aims to select bug bounty platform providers (three providers in "cascade") to help find vulnerabilities in a wide range of free and open source software under the remit of the EUR 2.6 million EU-FOSSA 2 project.  Bug bounties are used by organisations to reward individuals who find security vulnerabilities, with awards depending on the severity of the issue uncovered.


The EU-FOSSA 2 project is an initiative of three Members of the European Parliament - Max Andersson, Julia Reda (Greens/EFA) and Marietje Schaake (ALDE). It aims to ensure the security of free and open source software used at the European institutions.
