Allegro Software Announces Advanced Edition Embedded Internet Software Toolkits That Empower Next-Generation Embedded Systems Connectivity and Security

At the RSA® Conference 2014 in San Francisco, CA, Allegro Software, a leading supplier of Internet component software for embedded devices, today announced the RomPager Advanced Edition (AE) product suite targeting next-generation embedded systems connectivity and advanced security. Specifically engineered for the rigors of embedded computing, the RomPager AE product suite offers both IPv4 and IPv6 operation, allowing OEM manufacturers to build secure embedded device management architectures that perform seamlessly in IPv4 and IPV6 networking environments alike. The RomPager AE family of components is pre-integrated with the Allegro Cryptography Engine (ACE) FIPS 140-2 level 2 validated cryptography module, enabling manufacturers to add standards-based cryptography to resource-sensitive embedded systems quickly, easily, and reliably while decreasing time to market. The full RomPager AE product suite is ideally suited for creating secure device management architectures in transportation, military, energy, healthcare, and communications applications where IPv6 operation and strong validated cryptography is a requirement.

CONNECTIVITY

Long recognized as a “growing issue” with the Internet, the allocation of IPv4 addresses has reached a tipping point. Regional Internet Registries (RIRs) manage the allocation and registration of Internet addresses throughout the five defined regions in the world. The Asia Pacific, Europe, and Middle East regions have exhausted their IP addresses, with the other regions of the world soon to follow. The global growth, acceptance, and use of connected devices are fueling the depletion of the few remaining address blocks in the limited pool of 4.3 billion IPv4 addresses.

IPv6 promises an almost unlimited address space in addition to many other global networking enhancements. For most large organizations, ISPs, and consumers, however, transitioning to IPv6 is more than simply flipping a switch. As a result, most networking environments will operate in both IPv4 and IPv6 environments for the foreseeable future before transitioning to a dedicated IPv6 network.

Allegro’s suite of Advanced Edition embedded Internet toolkits provide IPv6 and IPv4 operating modes, enabling OEM manufacturers to leverage the broad range of Web technology, functionality, and flexibility of the RomPager AE product suite to create innovative secure device management architectures in IPv4 environments today that will also work in IPv6 environments of the future.

SECURITY

Network-enabled embedded systems are sometimes referred to as the “quiet contributors” of the Internet of Everything. Anonymously working behind the scenes for many modern technologies -- from fire trucks and automobiles, consumer healthcare products and medical devices to defense and energy management products and services -- Internet-enabled embedded devices play the integral role of delivering connectivity into the hands of everyone. For the billions of connected devices in today’s marketplace, this presents significant new security challenges that must be addressed immediately and systematically.

For enterprise and embedded systems, the systematic implementation of standards-based encryption technology has proven invaluable in addressing security concerns. Many industries have a heightened awareness about the vulnerabilities that embedded systems face against the countless types of Internet attacks, and insist upon the effective utilization of cryptography to mitigate the risk of data theft. The Allegro Cryptography Engine (ACE) is one of the smallest, fastest, and most comprehensive FIPS 140-2 validated cryptography software modules on the market. Specifically engineered to meet the critical needs of embedded computing systems, ACE enables embedded systems developers to perform bulk encryption and decryption, message digests, digital signature creation and validation, and key generation and exchange easily. ACE includes a platform-independent implementation of the NSA-defined Suite B suite of cryptographic algorithms, as well as other FIPS-approved algorithms.

“As the Internet of Everything continues to grow, the need to smoothly transition to the next generation Internet Protocol (IPv6) is approaching rapidly,” says Bob Van Andel, President of Allegro. “Allegro’s Advanced Edition products allow engineering design teams to implement device-management architectures using IPv4 today that smoothly transition to the next-generation IPv6 in the near future. In addition, the RomPager AE suite of toolkits address the need for strong data privacy with advanced encryption and security technology for your embedded devices.”

The available RomPager AE suite of toolkits are:
