Green Hills Software Adds New Levels of Security for Networking and Cryptographic Computing

Green Hills INTEGRITY RTOS and Embedded Cryptographic Toolkit Integrated With Freescale C29x Cryptographic Coprocessor

NUREMBERG, GERMANY and SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/25/14 -- embedded world, Hall 4, Stand 325 and RSA Conference -- Green Hills Software, the largest independent vendor of embedded software solutions, today announced its multi-tiered integration with the Freescale Semiconductor C29x cryptographic coprocessor family. The Green Hills solution, comprised of its INTEGRITY® real-time operating system (RTOS), Embedded Cryptographic Toolkit and advanced MULTI® integrated development environment (IDE), is optimized to utilize the C29x security engines (SEC). This will enable designers to efficiently accommodate the exploding demand for secure processing in applications, such as data center computing, hardware security modules and security appliances, used in government, banking, and defense systems.

"As modern commerce and communications require higher levels of security, Freescale's C29x crypto coprocessor family brings new scalability in both power and performance at a low cost," said Tareq Bustami, vice president of product management for Freescale's Digital Networking business. "Green Hills Software brings to us industry leadership for software security through its INTEGRITY RTOS and Embedded Cryptographic Toolkit."

Compute-intensive math behind key transactions and secure network communications quickly saturates today's general-purpose processors and even multicore SoCs with cryptographic acceleration. The C29x security engine (SEC) offloads this processing with unparalleled performance.

Green Hills expands its existing security solutions by incorporating the computational acceleration of the C29x coprocessor, thus offering customers a three-pronged end-to-end solution for the stringent requirements of embedded secure networking and cryptographic module computing:

  • The INTEGRITY RTOS is the ideal run-time foundation for secure processing -- certified as the most secure operating system in the world (Common Criteria EAL 6+, High Robustness). The INTEGRITY separation architecture and scheduling policies guarantee real-time determinism, application separation and quality of service. The INTEGRITY RTOS offers an extensive array of integrated middleware for file systems, wireless, IPv4/v6 networking, graphics and connectivity.
  • The Embedded Cryptographic Toolkit from Green Hills provides a complete set of C- language cryptographic algorithms, random number generators, secret-key and public-key cryptography and secure networking protocols, validated to FIPS 140-2 level 1 and meeting the NSA Suite B Standard:
    • High Assurance Embedded Cryptographic Toolkit (HA-ECT) is a complete set of cryptographic algorithms, including AES encryption and Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) for key agreement and digital signatures
    • SSL 3.0/TLS 1.0 server and client protocol supporting RSA, PKCSv1.5, DES, 3DES, AES, RC4, SHA1, SHA2, MD2, MD4, MD5, RNG, OCSP and SCEP for certificate management
    • IPsec/IKEv2 for secure IP packet communication with peer authentication, encryption and message integrity using AES, DES, 3DES, Diffie-Hellman, SHA1, MD5
    • Portable SSH developers kit for interactive shell and tunneled TCP/IP security layer
  • The MULTI IDE and Green Hills JTAG probe are a complete software and hardware environment for building embedded applications in C, C++, and Embedded C++, enabling software developers to create a more reliable product, brought to market more quickly, with lower development costs.

The INTEGRITY RTOS and Embedded Cryptographic Toolkit are available now and will be demonstrated at the RSA Conference, February 24-28 in San Francisco in the Freescale exhibitor stand, South Expo #1733.

We all know that data growth is exploding and storage budgets are shrinking. Instead of showing you charts on about how much data there is, in his General Session at 17th Cloud Expo, Scott Cleland, Senior Director of Product Marketing at HGST, showed how to capture all of your data in one place. After you have your data under control, you can then analyze it in one place, saving time and resources.
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...
Continuous processes around the development and deployment of applications are both impacted by -- and a benefit to -- the Internet of Things trend.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true ...
Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...
The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more.

Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...
I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...
