Lynx demonstrates Meltdown immunised secure laptop at RSA


No OS Patches Required

San Jose, California, Friday 13 April 2018 – Lynx Software Technologies, a market leader in high assurance and safe system development, is demonstrating LynxSecure, the only endpoint security solution that provably separates protected enclaves from user domains for the first time on a secure laptop at the RSA Conference, April 16-20 2018.

LynxSecure is a true high assurance separation kernel virtualization technology with a decentralized approach ensuring that each guest computing environment is self-sufficient and obviating the need for the kernel to provide global application services. LynxSecure’s unique separation implementation meant that LynxSecure was immune to Meltdown, where the side channel attack would otherwise be able to derive access to kernel and guest private memory as a result of central service […]

ETAS and Lynx Software Technologies Collaborate


ETAS and Lynx Software Technologies collaborate to deliver safe and secure platform technology to support the needs of next generation connected and autonomous vehicles

  • The RTA-BSW AUTOSAR software from ETAS, Embedded Security by ESCRYPT, and the LynxSecure Separation Kernel Hypervisor from Lynx bring the best of the safety and security worlds together for the automotive industry.
  • The next generation of connected and autonomous vehicles requires powerful domain controllers/vehicle computers (DC/VC ECUs) to be introduced into the EE architecture.
  • The DC/VC ECUs will use powerful microprocessors with richer, more adaptive software platforms – but they still have challenging safety, security, and real-time requirements; AND, they must also integrate with the classic platforms.
  • The solution offered by bringing together ETAS, ESCRYPT, and Lynx offers the […]
