DDC-I and Mocana Announce Integrated IoT Security Platform for Military and Commercial Avionics

Integrated COTS platform utilizes safety-critical RTOS and IoT security technology to bring trusted boot, updates, crypto, and device-to-cloud communications to avionics applications

Phoenix, AZ. – April 4, 2017 – DDC-I, a leading supplier of software and professional services for mission- and safety-critical applications, and Mocana, a leading provider of mission-critical security solutions for embedded systems and the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced an integrated platform for avionics security that combines DDC-I’s Deos certifiable safety-critical real-time operating system (RTOS) with Mocana’s IoT Security Platform. The integrated, commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) platform enables avionics developers to equip their safety critical systems with advanced security capabilities, such as trusted boot and firmware upgrades, certificate management, cryptography, data transport, and device-to-cloud communications.

Mocana provides high-performance, lightweight, small footprint, mission-critical IoT software security solutions that enable companies to harden embedded systems and connect safely to the broader world with exceptional visibility and control. Leveraging a full-stack, non-open source software architecture, Mocana’s IoT Security Platform provides trusted boot and firmware updates, as well as secure, high-integrity device authentication, encryption, and device-to-cloud communications. The software is FIPS 140-2 validated, OpenSSL compatible, features multiple TCP/IP stacks, supports a variety of networking environments (SSL, SSH, multicast, IPSec, wireless and SCEP, EST), and can be readily customized in C/C++ and Java to facilitate easy compliance with a variety of industry requirements.

“Mocana and Deos bring trusted, military-grade security and cloud-based communications to connected commercial and military aircraft, including secure boot and secure update capabilities that are rapidly becoming requirements for avionics,” said Bob Morris, president and CEO of DDC-I. “Advanced safety-critical features like time/space partitioning and support for multiple isolated TCP/IP stacks make Deos an excellent platform for integrating and deploying applications that utilize Mocana’s innovative IoT security capabilities.”

“We are pleased to be working with DDC-I to offer our joint customers an integrated platform that features best-in-class RTOS and security technology,” said William Diotte, CEO at Mocana. “Avionics developers now have a flexible, high-performance, off-the-shelf solution for delivering enhanced security and Internet connectivity.”

Deos is an embedded RTOS that has been used in hundreds of safety-critical avionics applications on commercial and military aircraft. Certified to DO-178B DAL A since 1998, the time- and space-partitioned RTOS features deterministic real-time response and employs patented technologies for reducing resource contention. Deos is the only certifiable time and space partitioned COTS RTOS that has been created using RTCA DO-178, Design Assurance Level A (DAL A) processes from the very first day of its product development. Deos’ unique modular design and verification evidence provides the easiest, lowest cost path to DO-178C DAL A certification, the highest level of safety criticality.
