Secure Embedded Operating Systems 101: A primer for security-relevant products - Attacks, hacks, worms, viruses - software is becoming increasingly vulnerable to a myriad of threats.
Attacks, hacks, worms, viruses - software is becoming increasingly vulnerable to a myriad of threats. No matter how secure the perimeter around your systems, malicious attacks can and will break through. How do you ensure containment, if not continued operation, despite a system breach? Today's interconnected embedded systems require that secure operation be designed in from the ground up - via a secure OS.
In this seminar, noted software security expert Eugen Bacic will illustrate what is understood and expected of a secure embedded operating system and the necessary implementation requirements for real-life products. Drawing from his vast experience in the security community, Mr. Bacic will explore what constitutes security for all manner of systems, and outline the considerations for evaluating a secure OS. Mr. Bacic will demonstrate how the QNX® Neutrino® real-time operating system (RTOS) exemplifies the key security requirements, such as availability and reliability, while ensuring the system meets the real-life challenges of flexibility and connectivity.
