ISCF is working with Innovate UK, part of UK Research and Innovation, to invest £6 million in innovation projects.

The aim of this competition is to develop demonstrators of a product or service in which capability enabled hardware will be used to provide a more secure solution.

‘Capability enabled hardware’ includes security features or safeguards that are built in the processor architecture and hardware system so that it becomes more secure in the face of a range of security vulnerabilities.

The objectives of the competition are to:

  • develop market demonstrators showcasing the new security capability in a vertical industry segment(s) or in applications that may cut across several vertical industry segments;
  • enable innovators developing secure products or services to work alongside early technology providers;
  • widen the pool of technology and research providers in order to expand the impact of capability enabled hardware.

Your project must use the DSbD technology platform prototype and specify the quantity of prototype hardware boards that are needed in your demonstrator.

This is phase 1 of a 2-phase competition. Phase 1 is an expression of interest (EoI) for which no funding will be allocated.
