Reviews and Consulting

So, ya need some security help? Our talents are many, but here are the things we normally assist Chromium engineers with:

Security Reviews

Features that are new or substantial refactors / expansions should have an associated Chrome Launch bug - creating that will trigger our security review process. The purpose of a security review is not the elimination of all possible vulnerabilities, but rather the promotion of secure design and implementation practices in Chromium. It also helps the security team stay engaged with the rest of Chromium engineering.

Here's how the process works:
Important: if you have a good reason for not being able to complete the questionnaire, or if it's not suitable for what you're working on, feel free to get in touch with us directly and provide a free-form explanation of what's on your mind. Please don't abuse this: if we end up having to ask all the same questions that would be answered by the questionnaire, it's just a waste of everyone's time.

Adding new code to third_party
Third party code is a hot spot for security vulnerabilities, so make sure to give security a head's up by getting a code review.

One-off questions
