Applications now Open for Cohort 5 of DSbD Technology Access Programme

Digital Security by Design Programme Open Call

Digital Security by Design (DSbD) is transforming the way that computers run software. It’s empowering developers with new ways of working to enhance the resilience, integrity and security of their software.

UK companies with a culture of innovation from any sectors are invited to apply to the Technology Access Programme run by Digital Catapult.

Successful applicants will get access to an Arm designed Morello Board, a technology prototype platform, technical support, and a £15,000 grant to trial these technologies within their own systems, uncover security vulnerabilities and share findings that will shape the design of future computing systems.

These technologies, which can eliminate most memory safety issues in C and C++, are based on CHERI, a novel instruction-set architecture developed by the University of Cambridge and SRI International.

Companies will have the opportunity to keep the hardware once the trial period has ended.

You can apply for the Technology Access Programme here. Applications close at 12:00 noon on Monday 1 April 2024.

If you have any queries or you would like to be called back fill out this form.
