The CHERI Alliance

Memory safety issues are the root cause of 70% of cyberattacks, which cause more than $10 trillion of damage worldwide, each year. We need to stop this.

Initially created via a joint research project between SRI international and Cambridge University, CHERI (Capability Hardware Enhanced RISC Instructions) extends conventional hardware Instruction-Set Architectures (ISAs) with new architectural memory protection features to address memory vulnerabilities in programming languages such as C and C++.

As an independent non-profit organization, the CHERI Alliance is on a mission to unite industry leaders, system developers and security experts to drive and promote CHERI as an efficient security standard.
