FIPS 140-2 Certification Enhances Popular IoT Platform

Express Logic teams with atsec information security to execute the design and implementation of the X-Ware IoT Platform’s NetX Crypto libraries for compliance with Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 cryptographic standards. The certification authority for this effort, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), issued the FIPS 140 Publication Series in May 2001 to align the requirements and standards for cryptography modules that include both hardware and software components.

 

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. The certification effort represents another significant step forward in focusing directly on IoT security needs of the embedded industry.

Fierce AI Week

Register today for Fierce AI Week - a free virtual event | August 10-12

Advances in AI and Machine Learning are adding an unprecedented level of intelligence to everything through capabilities such as speech processing and image & facial recognition. An essential event for design engineers and AI professionals, Engineering AI sessions during Fierce AI Week explore some of the most innovative real-world applications today, the technological advances that are accelerating adoption of AI and Machine Learning, and what the future holds for this game-changing technology.

 

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.
