In the IoT trailer, Green Hills will demonstrate its unique security, safety and real-time software solutions driving the IoT of today and connected products tomorrow.
Securing Devices in the IoT
Hackers are increasingly targeting embedded devices as the rollout of the Internet of Things gains momentum. Green Hills Software will demonstrate a software architecture for securing devices in the IoT based on the INTEGRITY® RTOS (real-time operating system), which has been certified as the most secure operating system in the world. A Freescale i.MX 6-based point-of-sale reference platform demonstrates how the proven separation policies of INTEGRITY can defeat RAM scraper malware recently used in attacks at several major US retailers.
High Performance, Safety-Certified Digital Instrument Cluster
Green Hills Software will demonstrate a high performance digital instrument cluster based on the Freescale i.MX6 processor running a safety-critical HMI built with DiSTI’s GL Studio SC (Safety Critical). The instrument cluster’s software foundation is the safety-certified INTEGRITY RTOS, which provides real-time performance combined with Open GL graphics acceleration to enable blistering graphics performance at 70 frames per second. This platform is ideal for OEMs and Tier 1s looking to combine ISO 26262 safety certification with high performance, advanced 2D and 3D graphics.
Streaming Media for Automotive Infotainment
Green Hills Software will demonstrate the Cinemo Media Engine™ and its powerful embedded multimedia player supporting all popular disc, audio and video file formats, integrated and optimized for the INTEGRITY RTOS, running on the Freescale i.MX6 automotive-grade processor. Media is also streamed wirelessly to multiple synchronized tablets demonstrating rear seat distributed infotainment over a Wi-Fi network.
Secure Remote Management of Critical IoT Devices
Web connectivity, secure communications, and machine-to-machine (M2M) management is featured in this demonstration running the safety-certified INTEGRITY RTOS and hardware-accelerated cryptography of the Freescale C29X Crypto Coprocessor. A secure web-based management interface based on the Barracuda application server from Real Time Logic connects into a M2M network to perform control and state monitoring of Freescale’s Kinetis® based IoT devices.
“We chose Green Hills for this project, because the Green Hills industry-leading security expertise and comprehensive software development solutions are especially key to the continuing advancement of the IoT,” said John Dixon, director of corporate marketing for Freescale. “Green Hills has a very long and successful track record of enabling our customers across multiple Freescale architectures with a common suite of development tools, run-time software, and processor probes which fully complement and maximize our processor portfolio.”
