Apple invites security experts to preview Mac OS X Lion

updated 07:25 pm EST, Fri February 25, 2011

OS update contains several security improvements

Apple has reportedly invited a number of security experts to preview a prerelease seed of the Mac OS X Lion update. The company appears to be seeking individuals who have "already reported on Mac OS X security issues in the past," though participants are likely bound by NDA until the public launch.

"[Mac OS X Lion] contains several improvements in the area of security countermeasures," reads part of the letter, which was posted on CNET.

Aside from the security features, which have yet to be detailed, the update is also expected to bring a fullscreen mode, new Launchpad app interface, improved Mail client, and the Mission Control utility that combines Expose, Dashboard and Spaces functionality.

Apple recently released a developer preview of the upcoming OS, with availability limited to individuals involved in the Mac Developer Program. A time-frame for the public release remains unknown.
