Wind River VxWorks MILS Platform (multi-core)
Product Note


The world's most critical defense, networking, and industrial infrastructure requires high assurance of security along with protection from intentional threats and inadvertent errors. In addition, there is pressure to increase the capability of these systems while at the same time reducing their costs.

Wind River® VxWorks® MILS Platform provides an operating run-time environment designed for systems having high security, high assurance, and high performance requirements. VxWorks MILS Platform implements an industry-standard system architecture called Multiple Independent Levels of Security (MILS) that enables multiple software components with different security levels, or from different domains, to safely and securely share the same hardware platform. By sharing a single hardware platform (containing either a single processing core or multiple cores) among multiple applications, manufacturers can significantly reduce the costs of the system by reducing size, weight, and power (SWaP) requirements.

Wind River has leveraged its experience with the industry-leading Wind River VxWorks 653 Platform for safety-certified integrated modular avionics (IMA) systems to create the VxWorks MILS separation kernel, which meets the security functional requirements and security assurance requirements in the "U.S. Government Protection Profile for Separation Kernels in Environments Requiring High Robustness" (SKPP), version 1.03. VxWorks MILS Platform provides the ideal high performance and scalable software foundation on which to build multilevel secure systems (MLS), cross-domain solutions (CDS), and other security-critical systems.

Designed to meet the stringent security functional requirements and security assurance requirements of Common Criteria EAL6+, VxWorks MILS Platform is ready for use in systems that may require high assurance, system-level evaluation. Common Criteria–based security evaluation evidence and DO-178C DAL A safety certification evidence will be available for VxWorks MILS Platform (single core version) to support system-level evaluation or certification and accreditation (C&A) processes.
