The initiative, run through a partnership with bug bounty platform provider HackerOne, is the first of its kind in the history of the federal government. The Hack the Pentagon bug bounty pilot will start on Monday, April 18 and end by Thursday, May 12. "Critical, mission-facing computer systems will not be involved in the program," the DoD stated.
