Cryptographic Security Engines Deepen RTOS Networking Security

Green Hills Software integrated its INTEGRITY real-time operating system (RTOS) with Freescale Semiconductor’s C29x cryptographic coprocessor family to meet the ever-growing demand for secure processing. The C29x security engines (SECs) help offload the cryptographic acceleration saturating general-purpose processors and multicore systems-on-a-chip dealing with compute-intensive math generated by key transactions and secure network communications. The overall solution consists of the RTOS, Embedded Cryptographic Toolkit, and MULTI integrated development environment (IDE). The INTEGRITY RTOS acts as a run-time foundation for secure processing. Its separation architecture and scheduling policies guarantee real-time determinism, application separation, and quality of service, according to the company. The Embedded Cryptographic Toolkit offers a complete set of C-language cryptographic algorithms, random number generators, secret- and public-key cryptography, and secure networking protocols. Also included is a SSL 3.0/TLS 1.0 server and client protocol, and IPsec/IKEv2 for secure IP packet communication with peer authentication, encryption, and message integrity.
