“When security risks in web services are discovered by independent security researchers who understand the severity of the risk, they often lack the channels to disclose them properly. As a result, security issues may be left unreported. Security.txt defines a standard to help organizations define the process for security researchers to disclose security vulnerabilities securely.”
