Apple Designs Non-Commercial iPhone Dedicated to Investigating Cyber security


Apple has started a program aimed at cyber security researchers who will be able to work with an iPhone specifically designed to advance the security of this phone and that is compatible with the company's rewards program.

The program focuses on an "iPhone dedicated exclusively to cyber security research", with a " unique enforcement code and containment policies ", which goes by the name of Security Investigation Device (SRD), as the official page collects. SRD has been designed for use in a " controlled environment "; It is not intended for ordinary use and grants access to elements that a normal iPhone does not allow, such as Shell or modification of rights.

The idea behind this program is to advance the security of iOS and the iPhone. With this device, researchers will be able to locate vulnerabilities and bugs, of which they must immediately report to Apple, or the corresponding company if it is found in the code of a third-party application.

This program is compatible with the companies' rewards program, with which researchers can earn up to a million dollars with the most serious discoveries.
