Please include the word “SECURITY” as well as “MCUboot” in the subject of any message.
We will make our best effort to respond in a timely manner. Most vulnerabilities found within published code will undergo an embargo of 90 days to allow time fixes to be developed and deployed.
Vulnerability reports and published fixes will be reported as follows:
Issues will be entered into MCUboot’s security advisory system on GitHub, with the interested parties (including the reporter) added as viewers.
The release notes will contain a reference to any allocated CVE(s).
When the embargo is lifted, the security advisory page will be made public, and the public CVE database will be updated with all relevant information.
