LONDON Green Hills Software Inc. has added three optional high assurance software components to its INTEGRITY-178B real-time operating system (RTOS).
The components are a RTCA/DO-178B level A-compliant partitioning Journaling file system called PJFS-178B, an RTCA/DO-178B level A-compliant network stack, called IPFLITE, and an ARINC 615A dataloader.
The journaling file system provides multiple INTEGRITY-178B partitions with concurrent power-fail safe access to an underlying file system. IPFLITE’s client/server architecture allows multiple applications to access the underlying network stack that resides in a virtual INTEGRITY-178B partition.
This announcement also follows the U.S. Government’s recent announcement that INTEGRITY-178B has been certified to the highest security assurance level required by the U.S. Government for operating systems – EAL6+/High Robustness. This EAL6+ certification is the first of its kind, the highest Common Criteria security level ever achieved for an operating system.
Only an EAL6+ High Robustness operating system is certified to protect classified information and other high value resources from attack by hostile and well-funded attackers.
