Secure cloud computing is aim of collaboration of LynuxWorks, TransLattice, and Fritz Technologies

SAN JOSE, Calif., 2 April 2012. Three software companies that specialize in information security are working together to provide design and development tools for secure cloud computing systems for situations requiring secure hosting of applications, geographic redundancy of applications and data, and secure cross-domain transfer of information.

LynuxWorks Inc. in San Jose, Calif.; TransLattice Inc. in Santa Clara, Calif.; and Fritz Technologies Corp. in Sebastopol, Calif., are combining their technologies and expertise in a secure cloud computing tool called Secure, Enterprise, Cross-Domain, Unified, Resilient Environment (SECURE).

The SECURE tool combines the first-generation secure server-based separation kernel (SepKer) from Fritz Technologies; the LynxSecure 4.0 separation kernel from LynuxWorks, and the TransLattice Application Platform (TAP) application and data distribution tool from TransLattice.

The Fritz Technology SepKer tool blends trusted boot via the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) and administrative tooling that help host several domains and application missions whether in a data center, shipboard, airborne, or land-based deployment.

The TransLattice Application Platform (TAP) distributes the application and its data across several virtual machines and system platforms within a secure domain for non-stop operations even one or more components of the computing lattice. gets lost.

The LynxSecure separation kernel, meanwhile, maintains security while providing access to several classifications of information maintained in separate domains on one workstation or server, and helps share controlled data among domains.

The SECURE solution consolidates several applications onto virtual machines on one server while maintaining domain separation in the virtualization solution; reducing cost through hardware consolidation; deploying market-standard operating systems including Windows and Red Hat Linux; achieving high security standards for military deployments; and improving resilience with a lattice approach to application and data distribution, company officials say.

The SECURE solution uses the LynxSecure 5.0 virtualization tool from LynuxWorks, running on a standard x86-based server and offers secure virtual machine domains running unmodified guest operating systems including Linux, Solaris, and Windows.

The TransLattice Application Platform runs in one or several secure domains providing distributed application and data support. SECURE provides trusted boot using TPM and provides secure domain separation among unclassified, secret, and top secret domains with optional support for cross-domain transfer.
