Version 7.0 of LynxOS from Lynuxworks meets increasing security requirements for real-time operating systems (RTOSs). Using LynxOS 7.0, security functionality can be added to each connected device, rather than relying on the network protection that is in place today. It provides military-grade security for embedded devices using features such as access control lists, audit, quotas, local trusted path, account management, trusted menu manager, and OpenPAM. It also includes networking support for long-haul and short-haul networks and their various protocols. Version 7.0 is a deterministic, hard ROTS that provides POSIX-conformant application programming interfaces (APIs) in a small footprint embedded kernel. Other new features include new tool chains, debuggers, and cross-development host support. It supports the most popular reference targets in the Intel and PowerPC architectures, including the new fourth-generation Intel Core processors, and the Freescale QorIQ processors.
