Kit for VxWorks

Share:

The Internet of Things (IoT) is transforming production facilities into smart factories, utilities into smart grids, constructions into smart buildings. As the industrial IoT becomes gradually pervasive on a global scale and tags, sensors, embedded computers and control systems are interconnected over the internet, the risk of hacker attacks is increasing.

Wibu-Systems has intensified its successful cooperation with Wind River® to offer a deep integration of CodeMeter® with Security Profile for  VxWorks®, the world’s most widely deployed commercial RTOS.

The result is a fully scalable solution that features best-of-breed security for device, data, and IP protection, and additional licensing management options to expand business opportunities.

In particular, the Wibu-Systems’ portion of the solution consists of two layers:

  • Basic Security, software-based and deeply entrenched in the Security Profile of VxWorks
  • CodeMeter Security, a complementary hardware-based add-on

Together, Wibu-Systems and Wind River offer a comprehensive turnkey solution that encompasses the following benefits:

The security highlights provided by CodeMeter consist mainly of:

  • Internal Certification Authority: the CA produces, signs, and manages the required certificates necessary to enable the Secure Boot process, and in turn protect applications from tampering
  • Secure Boot: a functionality that relies on UEFI specifications and help prevent malicious software applications from loading during the system start-up process, thanks to a digital certificate-based chain of trust
  • Secure Runtime Loader: the essential core for integrity and know-how protection from piracy and reverse-engineering is built on a combination of AES decryption and digital signature verification of kernel modules and real-time processes
  • Unparalleled range of different form factors for secure license containers: software licenses and software encryption keys can be stored in the complete range of CmDongles and CmActLicenses; all hardware form factors embed smart card technology for top security performance

In addition, Security Profile for VxWorks supports:

  • Encrypted Containers: TrueCrypt-compatible AES-encrypted containers safeguard data when the device is powered down
  • Advanced User Management: a centralized system assigns user’s privileges and manages users at runtime, implementing restrictions and controlling access to the device based on user’s credentials
  • Network Security: Wind River SSL, SSH, Cryptography Libraries, IPsec and IKE protocols are incorporated to effectively secure network communications

Security Profile for VxWorks’ Additional Features

  • Compatibility with VxWorks 7 Core Platform and all industry-specific profiles for VxWorks, including Aerospace Profile, Industrial Profile, Medical Profile, Networking Profile, and Consumer Profile

Product Requirements

  • VxWorks 7
  • Optional for dongle use: USB port or (microSD, SD, CFast) memory card slot
