Performing Security Research using Linode

We permit security researchers to use our platform, however we do require some clarification on the nature of the research.

If you would like to perform security research using your Linodes, simply open a ticket with our support staff and provide answers to the following questions.

1) What type of research are you doing? Is there more than one kind of test or scan that you do?

2) What is the purpose of this research?

3) Are you conducting this research for a company, a university or for personal use?

4) What effect do you expect this research will have on the systems that are being connected to or scanned?

Once you have submitted this ticket, our Trust & Safety team will review your responses and get back to you as soon as we can.
