April 10, 2017 - DDC-I, a supplier of software and professional services for mission- and safety-critical applications, and Mocana, a provider of mission-critical security solutions for embedded systems and the Internet of Things (IoT), announced an integrated platform for avionics security that combines DDC-I’s Deos real-time operating system (RTOS) with Mocana’s IoT Security Platform. The integrated, commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) platform enables avionics developers to equip their safety critical systems with advanced security capabilities, such as trusted boot and firmware upgrades, certificate management, cryptography, data transport, and device-to-cloud communications.
Mocana provides mission-critical IoT software security solutions that enable companies to harden embedded systems and connect safely to the broader world with visibility and control. Leveraging a full-stack, non-open source software architecture, Mocana’s IoT Security Platform provides boot and firmware updates, as well as secure device authentication, encryption, and device-to-cloud communications. The software is FIPS 140-2 validated, OpenSSL compatible, features multiple TCP/IP stacks, supports a variety of networking environments (SSL, SSH, multicast, IPSec, wireless and SCEP, EST), and can be customized in C/C++ and Java to facilitate easy compliance with a variety of industry requirements.
Deos is an embedded RTOS that has been used in hundreds of safety-critical avionics applications on commercial and military aircraft. Certified to DO-178B DAL A since 1998, the time- and space-partitioned RTOS features deterministic real-time response and employs patented technologies for reducing resource contention. Deos is a certifiable time and space partitioned COTS RTOS that has been created using RTCA DO-178, Design Assurance Level A (DAL A) processes from the very first day of its product development. Deos’ unique modular design and verification evidence provides a path to DO-178C DAL A certification, the highest level of safety criticality.
