Express Logic to obtain Common Criteria EAL4+ Security Certification for X-Ware IoT Platform SC

Express Logic has partnered with Brightsight, the world’s leading security lab, to perform the deeply embedded industry’s first EAL4+ security certification for cloud connectivity. The Norwegian National Security Authority (SERTIT) is the certification authority for this effort. Express Logic’s new EAL4+ security certification effort represents another significant step forward by focusing squarely on IoT security needs of the embedded industry, making what is already the most safe IoT platform also the most secure.

X-Ware IoT Platform SC is the subset of X-Ware IoT Platform that pertains to cloud connectivity. It includes the popular ThreadX RTOS, NetX Duo embedded IPv4 & IPv6 TCP/IP stack, NetX Secure TLS, and NetX MQTT. These are the necessary components for connectivity with most of the world’s most popular cloud providers and they are also the subject of this EAL4+ security certification effort. Furthermore, this EAL4+ certification effort is designed to be generic — not based on any particular microprocessor or cloud provider and therefore portable to virtually any device based on X-Ware IoT Platform SC.

Like all Express Logic products, the X-Ware IoT Platform SC is 100 percent created in-house, meaning that it includes no open-source code and is professionally supported. X-Ware IoT Platform provides high performance while maintaining a very small footprint, making it ideal for even the smallest of IoT devices. For example, X-Ware IoT Platform SC support for an embedded sensor typically requires less than 32KB of flash memory. Using X-Ware IoT Platform, embedded developers have plenty of room for their own application code, even on the smallest of devices.

In addition to the performance and size advantages of the X-Ware IoT Platform, ThreadX and NetX Duo have attained the highest level of safety certifications, including IEC 61508 SIL 4 (the highest, most dependable level as determined by IEC), IEC 62304 Class C, ISO 26262 ASIL D, EN 50128 SW-SIL 4, UL 60730-1 Annex H, CSA E60730-1 Annex H, IEC 60730-1 Annex H, IEC 60335-1 Annex R, and IEC 60335-1 Annex R, 1998.

X-Ware IoT Platform SC is more than just an RTOS with connectivity capabilities. In addition to the ThreadX RTOS and NetX Duo included in X-Ware IoT Platform SC, the safety-certified FileX embedded FAT-32/exFAT file system, GUIX GUI development and embedded runtime framework, and USBX embedded host/device USB stack are also available for use. Hence, embedded developers can leverage the entire X-Ware IoT Platform solution to create real IoT applications — ones that must do more than just communicate with the cloud.
