Express Logic, in collaboration with atsec information security, announces its industrial-grade X-Ware IoT Platform NetX Crypto library has achieved Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 cryptographic certification. FIPS 140-2 was instituted to protect sensitive or valuable U.S. government data, and data from commercial industries such as financial and health-care institutions that is collected, stored, shared, and disseminated electronically. Billions of devices are expected to be on the IoT by 2020, therefore security has become the primary concern of the embedded industry. To address this concern, the FIPS 140-2 certification effort represents another significant step forward in focusing directly on IoT security needs of the embedded industry.
In addition to the ThreadX RTOS and NetX Duo, the X-Ware IoT Platform includes the safety-certified FileX embedded FAT-32/exFAT file system, the GUIX GUI development and embedded runtime framework, and the USBX embedded host/device USB stack. This enables embedded developers to leverage the entire X-Ware IoT Platform solution to solve IoT applications that need to do more than just communicate with other devices and/or networks.
