Microsoft announces $250,000 BlueHat rewards

imageI spent last week at the BlackHat and Defcon security conferences in Las Vegas, and there was plenty of security news and research that came out of that. Microsoft had a presence there, and Katie Moussouris (head of their Security Community Outreach and Strategy team), announced that next year at BlackHat they will be awarding $250,000 in prizes for the most innovative research in security defense. This includes a $200,000 grand prize and $50,000 for the runner-up.  Microsoft gets a royalty-free license to the technology but the researchers who submit entries will own the IP.
