According to the Techcrunch, Apple is starting $200,000 worth Bug Bounty Program For iDevices And iCloud in September.
The program will have various categories:
- Vulnerabilities in secure boot firmware components: Up to $200,000
- Vulnerabilities that allow extraction of confidential material from Secure Enclave: Up to $100,000
- Executions of arbitrary or malicious code with kernel privileges: Up to $50,000
- Access to iCloud account data on Apple servers: Up to $50,000
- Access from a sandboxed process to user data outside the sandbox: Up to $25,000
Meanwhile, Apple plans to encourage researchers to donate their earnings to charity. That means if Apple approves of a researcher’s selected institution, it will match their donation — so a $200,000 reward could turn into a $400,000 donation.
