As hackers submit vulnerability reports through the HackerOne platform, their reputation measures how likely their finding is to be immediately relevant and actionable. Reputation is based exclusively on their track record as a hacker. There are a number of privileges that are gained by maintaining a high reputation, such as becoming eligible to receive invitations to Private bug bounty program. On the flip side, should their reputation decrease, the system will gradually reduce the number of report submissions allowed in a given time period. We believe it is critical to this community that Security teams be afforded a high-signal environment so that they can focus on providing a quality response to hackers who submit the best reports.
