If you are requesting a security audit, please complete this section. If not, you can ignore these questions.
Unless noted otherwise, if you do not answer Yes for each question in this section, we will most likely not consider your request.
This is to ensure the audit's findings are not misrepresented. You always have the ability to share the audits final report publicly or privately whenever or with whoever you want.
After the final report has been issued, you have 180 days to publicly disclose all of the vulnerabilities and other findings identified during the audit. After 180 days, we will publish the final report in full. You can totally publish it before that too. Under reasonable and rare circumstances, we may consider allowing for more time. Point is, you acknowledge that this report will be public.
This question is one of those that you do not have to answer yes.
If your project is not open source, you can sign an NDA with the auditor, as a condition of accessing and reviewing the source code. You will have to share the NDA with OTF for review before we allow the auditor to conduct the audit. The NDA must allow the auditor to disclose all findings and results of their audit to OTF, but shall not require disclosure of the source code to OTF. The NDA must allow for responsible public disclosure of vulnerabilities that remain unresolved 180 days after the final report has been delivered to you and for OTF to publicly publish the final report in full 180 days after it has been delivered to you.
