Apple on Thursday introduced its first bug bounty program, set to launch in September.
Ivan Krstic, head of Apple security engineering and architecture, announced the program during his presentation at Black Hat security conference in Las Vegas. The focus reportedly is on an exceptionally high level of service, and on quality over quantity. Participation in the program initially will be by invitation only, and it will be limited to a select group of researchers. However, Apple plans to work with other researchers on a case-by-case basis.
