Green Hills Software’s Integrity-178B simultaneously meets the software safety requirements of RTCA/DO-178B Level A for safety and reliability, and the information assurance requirements of the U.S. Government’s EAL6+ Separation Kernel Protection Profile (SKPP) for absolute security, says a company spokesperson.
“Our ISS Autonomous Vehicle Open Platform is the first end-to-end open platform in the embedded industry that includes an EAL6+-certified RTOS and a Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS)-validated Embedded Cryptographic Toolkit,” says Dan O’Dowd, chief executive officer and founder of Green Hills Software. “Our ISS AV Open Platform provides a reliable foundation to all Autonomous Vehicle and UCS developers reducing cost and time-to-market without compromising or sidestepping the demanding high-assurance software requirements that are expected from an operating system or cryptographic toolkit.”
The Integrity Security Services AV Open Platform includes the following components:
Integrity-178B Real-time Operating System(s)
ISS UCS Open Platform
ISS proprietary FIPS-validated Embedded Cryptographic Toolkit
MULTI Integrated Development Environment
ISS µSSL, µSSH, µVPN (IPSec/IKEv2), and µLoad Secure Boot Toolkits (Optional)
TCP Networking Stack, web server, Layer 3 IP Routing, USB and Management Stacks (Optional)
ISS Anti-Tamper Platform (Optional)
The AV Open Platform is designed to be small, scalable, and SKPP/EAL6+-compliant (Integrity-178B multi-level secure operating system option). Support is also available for Windows, Linux, Integrity and other general-purpose operating systems on ARM, Intel, Power Architecture, MIPS, and other processor architectures.
“Our customers are requesting high-assurance security solutions,” O’Dowd adds. “With the Integrity Security Services Platforms and our EAL6+-certified Integrity-178B operating system, we can secure all layers of all Autonomous Vehicles.”
