Digital Security by Design Technology Access Programme

The Digital Security by Design (DSbD) Technology Access Programme (TAP) is designed to give UK-based companies access to the Arm designed Morello board, CHERI stack, and technical support to trial these technologies within their systems, products, and applications.

Through the DSbD Technology Access Programme, companies will be able to experiment with and validate the prototype cyber security technology and feedback their findings to influence its future development before it enters commercialisation.

Key benefits:
