Report a Vulnerability#

We're extremely grateful for security researchers and users that report vulnerabilities to the KubeStellar Open Source Community. All reports are thoroughly investigated by a set of community volunteers.

You can also email the private list with the security details and the details expected for all KubeStellar bug reports.

When Should I Report a Vulnerability?#

  • You think you discovered a potential security vulnerability in KubeStellar
  • You are unsure how a vulnerability affects KubeStellar
  • You think you discovered a vulnerability in another project that KubeStellar depends on
  • For projects with their own vulnerability reporting and disclosure process, please report it directly there

When Should I NOT Report a Vulnerability?#

  • You need help tuning KubeStellar components for security
  • You need help applying security related updates
  • Your issue is not security related

Security Vulnerability Response#

Each report is acknowledged and analyzed by the maintainers of KubeStellar within 3 working days.

Any vulnerability information shared with Security Response Committee stays within KubeStellar project and will not be disseminated to other projects unless it is necessary to get the issue fixed.

As the security issue moves from triage, to identified fix, to release planning we will keep the reporter updated.

Public Disclosure Timing#

A public disclosure date is negotiated by the KubeStellar Security Response Committee and the bug submitter. We prefer to fully disclose the bug as soon as possible once a user mitigation is available. It is reasonable to delay disclosure when the bug or the fix is not yet fully understood, the solution is not well-tested, or for vendor coordination. The timeframe for disclosure is from immediate (especially if it's already publicly known) to a few weeks. For a vulnerability with a straightforward mitigation, we expect report date to disclosure date to be on the order of 7 days. The KubeStellar maintainers hold the final say when setting a disclosure date.
