Phaedrus Systems has launched emSSL, a ground-up implementation of secure sockets that are the backbone of secure communications on the Internet today. Written by Segger Microcontroller to run effortlessly on single-chip embedded devices, emSSL integrates seamlessly with Segger's embOS/IP or, alternatively, any IP stack that supports plain sockets, or any bidirectional communications channel.
emSSL supports TLS (Transport Layer Security)version 1, 1.1, and 1.2 out of the box and provides modern cipher suites that offer robust authentication, confidentiality, message integrity, and forward secrecy. Whilst being compact, it is also highly efficient in terms of RAM, ROM, and processor load. emSSL's highly flexible and straightforward configuration targets small devices by linking only what’s necessary, and at the same time avoids a sea of pre-processor defines that drown other source code products.
emSSL is delivered as a set of source files for complete transparency, ready to integrate into customer applications, and includes full documentation. In the UK emSSL is available from Phaedrus Systems.
