NSF to Award Cornell University $2.5M Grant to Develop Cryptographic Mechanisms for Software Security

The National Science Foundation will award up to $2.5 million in federal funds to Cornell University to develop cryptographic mechanisms to secure software platforms.

Sen. Charles Schumer (D-New York) said in a statement published Friday that Cornell will create cryptographic systems with the use of a programming language and the Viaduct platform.

Viaduct is designed to convert collected protocols into primitive cryptographic building blocks that create machine-checkable security systems.

Cornell University will conduct demonstrations, tutorials and workshops to advocate the product’s usage and demonstrate its capacity to offer end-to-end synthesis.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand said the funds will help Cornell develop systems that can protect personal information from potential hacker attacks.

“I will continue to support more federal funding for scientific research at our colleges and universities, so that more young people can be inspired to do research,” said Gillibrand.
