INTEL DEVELOPER FORUM 2016 (IDF 2016) – SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (Booth #329) – August 16-18, 2016 – Curtiss-Wright’s Defense Solutions division today announced that it will add support for Intel’s Trusted Execution Technology (TXT) to its TrustedCOTS™ (TCOTS™) hardware and software capabilities for protecting critical technologies and data in deployed embedded computing systems. Intel® TXT provides hardware-based security technologies, built into Intel’s silicon, that harden a platform against attacks to the Hypervisor, Operating System or BIOS, malicious root kit installations and other software-based attacks. Support for Intel TXT will be available on a select range of Intel processor-based single board computers (SBC) and digital signal processors (DSP)  included under Curtiss-Wright’s TCOTS Initiative, which includes open-architecture products, dedicated personnel, and comprehensive processes and services designed to protect critical data and technologies.

"As a leading supplier of open architecture COTS modules and systems for deployed defense applications, Curtiss-Wright is more frequently being called upon by our customers to help them address rapidly expanding and increasing requirements for anti-tamper (AT), Cybersecurity and Information Assurance (IA) capabilities,” said Lynn Bamford, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Defense Solutions division. "We are pleased to announce that we have added support for Intel’s Trusted Execution Technology to the comprehensive range of TrustedCOTS hardware and software techniques and technologies that we offer our customers to help them ensure the security of critical systems deployed worldwide.”

About Curtiss-Wright TCOTS Hardware and Software

Curtiss-Wright TCOTS hardware and software is based on its standard commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) products and includes security features designed-in to enable customers to quickly and economically implement their protection plans for critical technology and data. These products enable customers to begin their system development on standard COTS hardware and software and then move to a secure 100% software and performance compatible version of the product when they are ready to implement their program protection requirements. In addition to protecting hardware at the module and chassis level, TCOTS provides a comprehensive approach to data protection that enables data to be securely stored, retrieved and moved in a system while allowing only authorized access. TCOTS hardware includes secure network routers for Data-in-Motion solutions as well as secure storage for Data-at-Rest, with support for Type I, FIPS 140-2, FIPS-197, AES-256 and AES-128 encryption.

Availability: TCOTS support for Intel TXT is scheduled to begin in Q4 2016.
