Bug bounty programs offer a unique opportunity for security researchers to test and identify vulnerabilities in applications and systems, all while earning rewards for their efforts. However, with so many programs available, it can be challenging for researchers to find new targets and prioritize their efforts effectively. This is where the Chaos Bug Bounty Recon Data API from Project Discovery can be incredibly helpful.
The Chaos Bug Bounty Recon Data API is an API that consolidates data from multiple bug bounty platforms, including Hacker One, BugCrowd, Intigriti, and more. This API collects data only for targets that have either a public Bug Bounty program or Vulnerability Disclosure program, making it a reliable source of information for researchers.
In this blog post, we will explore how to use the Chaos Bug Bounty Recon Data API to optimize your bug bounty reconnaissance process.
To get started, researchers can request an API key by visiting the Project Discovery website. Once you have your API key, you can use the API to search for bug bounty programs for specific targets. The API offers a comprehensive list of available programs, including their rules, scope, and rewards. Researchers can use this information to prioritize their efforts and maximize their rewards.
How to Use the API
One of the primary features of the Chaos Bug Bounty Recon Data API is the ability to search for bug bounty programs based on target domain.
Project Discovery has also created a GO client that uses Chaos dataset API.
go install -v github.com/projectdiscovery/chaos-client/cmd/chaos@latest
$ chaos –help
Usage of chaos: -count Show statistics for the specified domain -d string Domain contains domain to find subs for -dL string File containing subdomains to query (optional) -json Print output as json -key string Chaos key for API -o string File to write output to (optional) -silent Make the output silent -version Show version of chaos

In a future blog post, I’ll share some script to get data from that source.
The Chaos Bug Bounty Recon Data API from Project Discovery is an excellent tool for security researchers looking to participate in bug bounty programs. By consolidating data from multiple platforms, the API provides a reliable source of information for researchers looking to find new targets and prioritize their efforts.
