Microsoft is holding a three-month challenge for every hacker to crack its custom Linux OS system. The first winner will then be awarded an amount of money up to $100,000. 

Azure Sphere OS is said to be the main reason that motivates Microsoft to open this challenge. In other sayings, the tech giant might simply want to check the safety level of its compact and custom version of Linux built for the platform last year.

Added by Sylvie Liu, who is a security program manager at the Security Response Center of Microsoft, the aim of the challenge is initiating new high impact security research in Azure Sphere; therefore a comprehensive IoT security solution can be generated. 

Moreover, Liu also emphasized the importance of Azure Sphere’s participation in the security research community in taking action to reduce the risk and address high-impact vulnerabilities before they are exploited by villains.

The research challenge will be available for both cybersecurity specialists and amateurs.

The research challenge will last from June 1 to August 31 and will be available for both cybersecurity specialists and amateurs. Anyone who can submit the valid and specific scenarios in the Azure Sphere Security Research Challenge will be awarded at most $100 000.

However, the company also noted that those can approach vulnerabilities outside the research scope can still be honored and given the Azure Bounty Program awards. In short, this challenge is generally created to strengthen the bond and partnership between Microsoft and the global security community that is regarded as the most powerful solution to guarantee the customers’ safety.
