The Grid Protection Alliance (GPA) takes the security of our software products and services seriously. This includes all source code repositories managed through our GitHub organizational sites, specifically: Grid Protection Alliance, Gemstone Libraries, and Streaming Telemetry Transport Protocol.
GPA has adopted the following “definition of security vulnerability” when considering what constitutes a security vulnerability. If you believe you have found a security vulnerability meeting this definition in any GPA-owned repository, please report it to us as described below.

Please report security vulnerabilities as described below, not through public GitHub issues.
To report a security vulnerability in any GPA-owned open source repository, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

- Full paths of source file(s) related to the manifestation of the issue
- The location of the affected source code (tag/branch/commit or direct URL)
- Any special configuration required to reproduce the issue
- Step-by-step instructions to reproduce the issue
