Responsible disclosure policy

Responsible disclosure overview

At Geotab, we take security of our users’ data very seriously. If you have discovered or believe you have discovered potential security vulnerabilities in a Geotab Service, we encourage you to disclose your discovery to us as quickly as possible. All submissions must be in accordance with the Geotab Vulnerability Disclosure Program Policy.

We will work with you to validate and respond to security vulnerabilities that you report to us. Because public disclosure of a security vulnerability could put the entire Geotab community at risk, we require that you keep such potential vulnerabilities confidential until we are able to address them. We will not take legal action against you or suspend or terminate your access to any Geotab Services, provided that you discover and report security vulnerabilities in accordance with this Responsible Disclosure Program. Geotab reserves all of its legal rights in the event of any noncompliance.

If you have a disclosure which is related to any Government data, please report it directly to us here.

Discovering security vulnerabilities

We encourage responsible security research on the Geotab services and products, including Webtask. We allow you to conduct vulnerability research and testing on the Geotab Services to which you have authorized access. In no event shall your research and testing involve:

• Physical attacks against Geotab employees, and/or offices.
• Social engineering of Geotab employees, customers, contractors, vendors, or service providers.
• Knowingly posting, transmitting, uploading, linking to, or sending any malware to or from Geotab-owned assets or systems.
• Pursuing vulnerabilities discovered on Geotab-owned assets or systems, which send unsolicited bulk messages (spam) or unauthorized messages.
• Any vulnerability obtained through the compromise of a Geotab customer, reseller or employee account.
• Being an individual on, or residing in any country on, any Canadian or U.S. sanctions lists.
• Submitting vulnerabilities that Geotab is unable to reproduce or acknowledge; for example anonymous submissions and submissions with insufficient information.

Issues not to report

The following is a partial list of issues that we ask for you not to report, unless you believe there is an actual vulnerability:

• CSRF on forms that are available to anonymous users
• Disclosure of known public files or directories (e.g. robots.txt)
• Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC) configuration suggestions
• Banner disclosure on common/public services
• HTTP/HTTPS/SSL/TLS security header configuration suggestions
• Lack of Secure/HTTPOnly flags on non-sensitive cookies
• Logout Cross-Site Request Forgery (logout CSRF)
• Phishing or Social Engineering Techniques
• Presence of application or web browser 'autocomplete' or 'save password' functionality
• Sender Policy Framework (SPF) configuration suggestions

The contents of all email communication you send to Geotab shall be considered non-proprietary.
