Apr 27, 2010 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) — LynuxWorks, a secure embedded software provider, has announced that it is working jointly with General Dynamics C4 Systems to accelerate the feature set of LynuxWorks LynxSecure technology and broaden its adoption into secure systems.
As part of a joint development activity, engineering teams from both companies have collaborated to build a responsive technology available to meet customer high assurance security requirements based on the LynxSecure software separation kernel from LynuxWorks.
Available from LynuxWorks since 2006 as a commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) product, the LynxSecure software provides the technology base for the joint development with General Dynamics.
In the case of General Dynamics’ use of LynxSecure for secure mobile computing, the company reduced hardware quantities, in addition to cost and power requirements, while allowing reuse of legacy software and enabling operational efficiencies all within a secure, assured environment.
Gurjot Singh, CEO of LynuxWorks, said: “LynxSecure is unique in its feature set. Coupled with the highest security implementation, LynxSecure now provides the leading Multiple Independent Levels platform for our customers to develop their high assurance applications. The joint development with General Dynamics C4 Systems has enabled us to accelerate the release of LynxSecure 4.0 and maintain technology leadership in the security market.” http://www.datamonitor.com Republication or redistribution, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited without prior written consent.
