HCC Embedded: MISRA-compliant EAP framework for secure IoT networks

HCC Embedded has released an embedded Extensible Authentication Protocol framework to support secure wireless connections for embedded devices. As part of this release, HCC provides support for many “flavors” of EAP, and the framework easily extends to include other protocols. Commonly used algorithms including EAPOL, EAP-TLS, EAP-IKEv2, and EAP-MD5 are available immediately.

EAP is used for device authentication that supports many types of secure access. It provides a basic request/response protocol framework over which specific security algorithms can be implemented. This approach gives developers a way to ensure that industrial, medical, and transport IoT devices that join a wireless network are authenticated. This helps to create a robust and secure network.

HCC’s EAP components are fully compliant with all relevant RFCs and come with a full test suite to verify correct operation on the target system. The EAP framework is developed according to HCC’s MISRA coding standard and provides reliability on any embedded target. When used with HCC’s MISRA-compliant networking stack, the EAP framework enables engineers to develop a secure, high-quality IoT device quickly and with confidence.

HCC is committed to ensuring the elimination of security problems caused by software-quality issues. HCC’s EAP framework is available with full MISRA compliance reports. Additional life-cycle evidence, including high-level design and functional specification, are supplied on request. To help ensure seamless connectivity of secure wireless networking, HCC has also joined the Wi-SUN Alliance as an adopter member. The Wi-SUN Alliance seeks to advance seamless connectivity by promoting the IEEE 802.15.4g standard–based interoperability for global regional markets. The HCC EAP framework passes Wi-SUN interoperability tests and conforms fully to certification requirements.
