DDC-I’s Safety-Critical Deos Avionics RTOS Delivers wolfSSL

WolfSSL, wolfCrypt, and wolfBoot bring secure, lightweight, encrypted FIPS 140-2-certified communications to DO-178 avionics applications running Deos.

DDC-I, a leading supplier of software and professional services for mission- and safety-critical applications, and wolfSSL, a leading provider of TLS cryptography, today announced the availability of version 5.0 of the wolfSSL embedded SSL library, wolfCrypt cryptography library and certification kit, and wolfBoot secure boot loader for DDC-I’s Deos DO-178 safety-critical

real-time operating system. The Deos™ RTOS is equipped with DAL-A-certifiable wolfSSL, wolfCrypt, and wolfBoot enable avionics developers to add secure quickly, encrypted, FIPS 140-2-certified data transport communications and secure boot loading to their avionics systems. Deos provides a robust foundation for secure systems, its modularity, hard partitioning, denial of dynamic operations, integrity checks, and controlled interprocess communications, making it the preferred environment for high-assurance systems. The addition of wolfSSL, wolfCrypt, and wolfBoot provides the proper cryptographic underpinnings for secure data transport, boot, and firmware upgrades. Together, Deos and the wolf suite brings trusted, military-grade security to connected avionics systems, making it ideal for not only military systems but also urban air mobility and the next generation commercial avionics systems.

“WolfSSL and Deos bring trusted, military-grade security to connected commercial and military aircraft,” said Bob Morris, President and CEO at DDC-I. “Advanced safety-critical features like time/space partitioning and the ability to support multiple isolated TCP/IP stacks make Deos an excellent platform for deploying avionics applications that utilize wolfSSL capabilities like secure boot, FIPS 140-2 crypto, and secure TCP/IP technologies.”

“The integration of Deos should prove very attractive to avionics developers who require a secure, out-of-the-box, safety-critical solution that comes ready to certify, complete with DAL A evidence,” said Larry Stefonic, CEO and Founder at wolfSSL. “We have a solid working relationship with DDC-I and have found Deos to be quite straightforward to work with. Together, we offer our joint customers a world-class platform that features best-in-class RTOS and security.”
