Lynx Software Technologies is delivering demonstrations and a presentation at the 10th Embedded Conference, Scandinavia, (Stockholm, November 3rd- 4th, stand 40), showing how its Lynx RTOS and LynxSecure virtualisation solutions offer unique safety and security functionality while embracing open standards. This is the third year in succession that Lynx is participating the event, which is celebrating its tenth anniversary in 2015.
Mark Pitchford, Technical Manager, EMEA, will deliver a paper at the conference, entitled, Bringing military grade security to the Industrial IoT. He will look at how security features already common in military-grade connected embedded devices such as access control lists, audit functionality, roles and capabilities, and identification and authentication can be leveraged to bring their security benefits to IoT infrastructure. This presentation will review these technologies and other operating system level functions that can be used to secure IoT devices within the constraints of the embedded environment, without unduly limiting their performance.
Supporting the same theme, Lynx Software Technologies will be showing how the combination of its LynxOS RTOS and LynxSecure hypervisor add isolation of domains, OSes and devices to provide end to end protection for the IoT.
LynxOS 7.0 with its native POSIX API brings military grade security to the protection of connected sensors and endpoints. It is a deterministic, hard real-time operating system that provides POSIX conformant API’s in a small footprint embedded kernel. Alongside the upcoming ARM support, LynxOS 7.0 currently supports the most popular reference targets in the Intel and PowerPC architectures including the new Intel 4th Generation Core, and the Freescale QorIQ processors.
The LynxSecure hypervisor brings unique protection characteristics to intelligent devices, gateways and cloud infrastructure. It combines military-grade security with hard real-time scheduling, offering unique differentiation against traditional virtualisation solutions. The separation kernel and “Type-0” hypervisor is an award winning bare-metal architecture, designed from the ground up, that differentiates from type 1 hypervisors by removing the un-needed functionality from the 'security sensitive' hypervisor mode, yet virtualises guest OSes in a tiny stand-alone package.
