Daniel Kroening awarded funding for UKRI Digital Security by Design project


Professor Daniel Kroening is one of nine grant winners who have been announced as the latest recipients in UK Research and Innovation’s ‘Digital Security by Design’ programme, which aims to help the tech infrastructure of UK organisations and digital devices be more resilient to cyber attacks.

The nine winners share £10 million (provided by UK Government) which will be spread across four years, to pursue the development of systems embedded with security-by-design principles.

Daniel has received funding as co-lead (with Giles Reger of University of Manchester) on the research project SCorCH: Secure Code for Capability Hardware.

Each research team awarded funding in this latest stage of the programme will create a working example of their technology using prototype chips, while also demonstrating the economic and social benefits.

‘The Digital Security by Design programme will radically update the security foundations of the digital computing infrastructure that underpins the entire economy,’ said UK Research & Investment challenge director for Digital Security by Design, John Goodacre.
