Regulations around safety and security continue to evolve as the global landscape changes to encompass new threats. Safety criteria are addressing the expanded use of unmanned aerial vehicles in national airspace, and information assurance challenges are rising with the proliferation of mobile devices. Regulatory bodies across avionics and defense industries are leveraging existing successful standards and processes and enhancing them to cover the growing number of threat vectors for safe and secure system operation. Wind River® delivers complete and cost-effective safety and security certification evidence for our safe and secure solutions to customers striving to contain costs and accelerate certified platform deployment.
Safety certification is a well-defined process in the aviation industry, and RTCA DO-178C and EUROCAE ED-12C was released as an update to the standard in 2012. Wind River provides certification services, training, and commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) certification evidence for systems that require compliance to RTCA DO-178C and EUROCAE ED-12C and other safety standards. Our solutions for both federated and integrated modular avionics (IMA) architectures deliver optimized solutions for single and multi-core platforms with professional services and extensive life cycle tool platforms that reduce the migration and certification time and cost for next-generation aircraft.
With the recent explosive growth of connected devices—encompassing mobile platforms, wireless connectivity to automobiles and enterprise systems, and unmanned vehicles—securing devices and network infrastructure is paramount. Different security standards exist to regulate application and data assurance levels across areas such as network access points, user authorization/authentication, and cryptography. Wind River offers products and services that address all the most prevalent security certification standards, such as medium and high assurance Common Criteria EAL, FIPS 140-2 secure cryptography, and Wurldtech Achilles. We deliver advanced solutions with enhanced capabilities for open source software like Security Enhanced (SE) Linux and SE Android, as well as complex security architectures like Multiple Independent Levels of Security (MILS) implementations.
