October 25, 2016 — Express Logic announced NetX Secure socket layer security for its NetX Duo IPV4/IPV6 TCP/IP network stack. NetX Secure uses Transport Layer Security Protocol (TLS) to achieve socket layer security and supports TLS versions 1.1 and 1.2. Like all of Express Logic’s products, NetX Secure was developed in-house. By leveraging the TLS industry standard, NetX Secure prevents “eavesdropping,” tampering, and pilfering of data across the network.
The introduction of NetX Secure strengthens NetX Duo’s arsenal of security capabilities, which already includes Internet Protocol Security (IPsec). IPsec provides secure communication at the network level. The combination of NetX Secure and IPsec provides users more network security options and enables users to develop secure connectivity for a variety of IoT and standalone systems that require a standards-based solution.
NetX Duo is designed to work with Express Logic’s ThreadX RTOS, and both products are certified to IEC 61508 SIL 4, IEC 62304 Class C, ISO 26262 ASIL D, and EN 50128. Both products also support all major commercial processors, providing a powerful platform for developing safety- and security-critical IoT systems.
