Microsoft today launched a new bug bounty program for bug hunters and researchers finding security vulnerabilities in its “identity services.”

Hacking into networks and stealing data have become common and easier than ever but not all data holds the same business value or carries the same risk.

Since new security today depends on the collaborative communication of identities and identity data within, and across domains, digital identities of customers are usually the key to accessing services and interacting across the Internet.

Microsoft said the company has heavily invested in the “creation, implementation, and improvement of identity-related specifications” that encourage “strong authentication, secure sign-on, sessions, API security, and other critical infrastructure tasks.”
