SAN DIEGO, 18 Nov. 2008Rockwell Collins in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, is demonstrating technology using LynxSecure 2.0 embedded hypervisor and separation kernel from LynuxWorks at the MILCOM '08 conference and exhibition this week at the San Diego Convention Center.
MILCOM is a national tradeshow for government, military, scientific, and engineering communities. Rockwell Collins can be found at booth 1323 and LynuxWorks at booth 1603.
Rockwell Collins' use of LynxSecure 2.0 will help speed design and development for their next generation of high-assurance complex avionics systems.
Rockwell Collins is the first company in the world to receive certification for a Multiple Independent Levels of Security (MILS) microprocessor (AAMP7G) under the new National Security Agency (NSA) guidelines.
LynxSecure providing operating system virtualization for safety- and real-time systems offers the highest standard for safety and security-critical applications.
The LynxSecure separation kernel is certifiable to Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level 7 (EAL-7), and DO-178B level A, the highest level of Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification for safety-critical avionics applications
Multiple Independent Levels of Security/Safety (MILS) architecture conformance for building multi-level secure systems.
The solution provides virtualization of guest operating systems, which allows one operating system (and its applications) to run within the environment of another kernel.
The flexible scheduling policy manages central processing unit (CPU) time to prevent starvation in any partition
The system's scalability enables a multithreaded small-footprint run-time environment for secure application development and multiprocess multithreaded environment through virtualized Red Hat, Linux, LynxOS, or LynxOS-178 real-time operating systems
It also has support for open standards, including a seamless migration path for LynuxWorks' customers whose Linux- and POSIX-based applications can now be run on virtualized Red Hat, Linux and LynxOS family environments within LynxSecure partitions
