Broadcom Foundation Research Grant for Next Generation Authentication


Call for Proposals

The current authentication model in which authentication credentials are pre-configured on a centralized server will rapidly become inadequate in the near future in which any device will interconnect with any other device and requires developing a new generation of authentication frameset.



The Broadcom Foundation is offering Tel Aviv University researchers a limited number of grants for research in Next Generation Authentication. Grant proposals shall be selected by a joint TAU/Broadcom Foundation committee, based on academic merit and on suitability to the topics of interest suggested by the Broadcom Foundation. Grants shall be for one or two
years, totaling up to US$30,000 per year.
