Pwn2Own Miami 2022 is scheduled to take place on January 25-27, 2022, and it has four main target categories: control server, OPC UA server, data gateway, and human-machine interface (HMI).

In the control server category, participants can earn up to $20,000 for hacking Iconics Genesis64 and Inductive Automation Ignition products.

In the OPC UA category, white hat hackers can earn between $5,000 and $40,000 for demonstrating exploits against the Unified Automation C++ demo server, the OPC Foundation’s OPC UA .NET standard, the Prosys OPC UA SDK for Java, and Softing Secure Integration Server. The highest rewards are for security bypass exploits and the lowest rewards are for DoS vulnerabilities.
