The FutureTPM project has officially started

by Martina Truskaller

On 1st of January 2018 the European cooperative research project, FutureTPM “Verification Future Proofing the Connected World: A Quantum-Resistant Trusted Platform Module” has officially started.

Under the technical lead of the University of Surrey, the project team will research a Quantum-Resistant (QR) Trusted Platform Module (TPM) by designing and developing QR algorithms suitable for inclusion in a TPM. Such a security anchor, also known as root-of-trust, is commonly used in domains with high appetence for security and trust, such as finance and banking (secure mobile payment), wearables (activity tracking) and device management. The FutureTPM consortium consists of 14 highly qualified industrial and academic partners from a wide variety of backgrounds and from 9 different countries.
