The excellent quality kaon beam provided by the DAΦNE collider of LNF-INFN (Italy) together with SIDDHARTA/SIDDHARTA-2 new experimental techniques, as very precise and fast-response X-ray detectors, allow to perform unprecedented measurements on light kaonic atoms crucial for a deeper understanding of the low-energy quantum chromodynamics (QCD) in the strangeness sector. In this paper an overview of the main results obtained by the SIDDHARTA collaboration, as well as the future plans related to the SIDDHARTA-2 experiment, are discussed.

The paper presents a summary of the experimental set up for the SIDDHARTA(-2) experiments on kaonic atoms, along with some results in kaonic hydrogen. The paper is a snapshot of work to date as presented at the EFB24 conference, and as such it should appear in the proceedings. It is clearly written and suitable for publication.
