Israeli privacy-enhancing technology provider QEDIT announced on Tuesday its participation in a $12.6 million project funded by DARPA, the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. The research project is geared towards harnessing advanced cryptography to preserve the integrity of complex software programs. The contract for Project Fromager was awarded to R&D specialist firm Galois, with QEDIT receiving $2 million of the funding allocation. Project Fromager is one of 12 projects being funded in conjunction with DARPA’s Securing Information for Encrypted Verification and Evaluation (SIEVE) program, which aims to use Zero-Knowledge Proofs (ZKPs) to enable the verification of capabilities relevant to the U.S. Department of Defense without revealing the sensitive details associated with those capabilities.
