SAN JOSE, Calif., 31 Jan. 2011. Fritz Technologies Corp., the prime contractor for a U.S. Government high-assurance program, has selected LynuxWorks Inc. as a strategic partner and the company’s LynxSecure 4.0 product as a foundation for its Multiple Independent Levels of Security (MILS) approach. The effort includes developing an environment where servers and applications can process data on different classification levels, while allowing data sharing between a fixed number of information nodes.

“Using standard hardware and the LynxSecure Separation Kernel and Embedded Hypervisor, we will be able to demonstrate a unique environment for running secure multiple guest operating systems and high-assurance, cross-domain data sharing,” says Bobbi-Michelle Wehrfritz, CEO and founder of Fritz Technologies Corp.

“LynxSecure maintains the highest levels of security while providing access to multiple classifications of information maintained in separate domains on a single workstation or server and also allowing controlled data sharing between the domains,” remarks Gurjot Singh, CEO for LynuxWorks Inc.
