Icon Labs has announced the integration of Icon Labs’ Floodgate security products with Mentor Graphics’ Nucleus RTOS and Mentor Embedded Linux. The integrated solution creates a secure platform for industrial automation and extends the Internet of Secure ThingsTM initiative into industrial control systems. This integrated solution is being jointly demonstrated at the ARC Industry Forum in February.
Icon Labs’ Internet of Secure Things Initiative defines a platform for developing secure, connected devices. The platform is designed to ensure that security is intrinsic to the architecture of the device itself and incorporates security management and visibility, device hardening, data protection and secure communications. These capabilities provide the foundation for the Industrial Internet of Secure Things. Natively securing the devices simplifies protection, audit, and compliance independent of the secure perimeter, reducing the need for expensive and complicated security appliances.
The integration of Icon Labs’ Floodgate products and Mentor Graphics’ embedded OSes provides:
- Security policy management
- Event and command audit log reporting
- Integration with the McAfee ePolicy orchestrator (ePO)
- Integrated embedded firewall
- Firmware and data anti-tamper support
- Integrated solution on both Nucleus and Mentor Embedded Linux
