Description

Would be great if WordPress supports security.txt with defaults to reporting for WordPress, but with filters so site owners and devs can add instructions for their themes/plugins/etc.

Thank you for the feature request, @bhubbard!

There's a plugin available for this functionality: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-security-txt/

I understand that it's not really a user-facing feature, so it's unlikely that sites will go out of their way to install the plugin. However, the extremely low installation base suggests that this is too niche a feature for core, and is best left in a plugin.

I'm happy to revisit this if the draft specification is accepted, and gains wider adoption.
