From enterprise applications and web browsers to mobile and IoT devices, hacking competition Pwn2Own has added another focus: industrial control system (ICS) and its associated protocols. Trend Micro’s Zero Day Initiative (ZDI), the bug bounty program behind Pwn2Own, has long been known to reward researchers for finding previously unknown software flaws.
Set to happen in Miami come January 2020, the competition will welcome ethical hackers looking to hack their way into different ICS-related software and protocols. ICS is a crucial addition to the competition as critical infrastructures rely on such systems to manage and/or automate industrial processes in sectors such as energy, manufacturing, and transportation.
