Lynx Software Technologies supports launch of IIC Security Framework
Lynx Software Technologies announced its support for the Industrial Internet Consortium and specifically the Industrial Internet Security Framework, unveiled in Heidelberg. Lynx is a member of the IIC Security Working Group and played an active role in drafting of the Security Framework.
The IIC Security Working Group announced the new the Industrial Internet Security Framework at its members meeting in Heidelberg on September 19, 2016. IISF provides a common security framework developed to address security issues in Industrial Internet of Things systems. It provides details on five characteristics - security, privacy, resilience, reliability and safety – that define “trustworthiness” in Information Technology systems and Operational Technology systems. The IISF defines risk, assessments, threats, metrics and performance indicators to help business management protect their organizations.
Lynx is also participating in the IIC Security Forum in Sunnyvale, California, Thursday, October 6th 2016. Lynx will have a live demonstration of their LynxSecure separation kernel hypervisor providing military-grade security to an IoT gateway. Lynx will also be represented on the panel discussion at the event.
Lynx Software Technologies LynxSecure 5.3 is a US DoD certified secure virtualization solution based on separation kernel technology. When deployed in an IoT gateway, LynxSecure implements the robust separation of domains, ensuring that the Operational Technology) network hosting the IoT endpoints is securely isolated from the wider Information Technology network. With a tiny trusted code-base, LynxSecure provides IoT endpoints and gateways with the protection they need by reducing the attack surface exploitable by malicious agents to an absolute minimum, and securely controlling any communications between the OT and IT domains.
