Certification-Ready Platform. Reduced Risks and Costs.
Security Profile for Wind River® Linux provides vital security capabilities on top of open source innovation to cover a broad spectrum of vertical markets. Based on the Common Criteria General-Purpose Operating System Protection Profile (OSPP), it includes features for creating secure platforms for embedded devices. The commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) software reduces development time and allows you to focus on value-added features.
The Power of Open Source Without the Risk
With Wind River Linux— a Yocto Project Compatible platform with Wind River–specific extensions, tools, and services—as its base, Security Profile combines the best of open source security technologies by bringing together software packages and kernel features (e.g., SELinux, grsecurity) with example configurations and tools designed to streamline the process of producing a system that is secure and ready to be validated and certified.
System Monitoring You Can Count On
Wind River constantly monitors new security risks and provides timely fixes. Intrusion detection and prevention tools give system owners configurable levels of monitoring, including real-time notification of security-relevant events. Features such as grsecurity and our full user space buffer overflow protection insulate customers from security flaws (zero-day protection), and the Wind River Security Response Team provides timely vulnerabilitiy patches.
