Enhanced Policy Control and Management with Security Enhanced Android

Security Enhanced (SE) Android is a project to identify and address critical security gaps within Android. Released by the National Security Agency (NSA), SE Android consists of a Linux kernel and Android user space modifications.

Wind River Solution Accelerator for SE Android enhances SE Android by implementing additional features to remove vulnerabilities and allow more specialized policy control for the following use cases:

Encrypted Data Protection Through Isolation

Securing the Boot Stage Processes

Wind River Solution Accelerator for Android, Secure Boot provides the foundation of security by verifying each stage of the boot process before the stage is executed.

This mechanism only allows authenticated software to be executed while preventing malicious code from being run. In addition, secure boot implements a chain of trust in which every component in the boot process measures the next one; if any component fails to pass signature verification, the boot process will stop.
