LYNX & RUNSAFE SECURITY
WHAT WE'RE DOING TOGETHER
The current practices of scanning and patching leaves mission critical systems including weapons vulnerable to the most common and most devastating cyber attacks. Addressing scan results slows down development teams, and doesn’t address key vulnerabilities. Meanwhile, Zero Day Vulnerabilities continue. We hear that within 15 minutes after a vulnerability is disclosed, attackers are attempting to exploit it; this cadence clearly outpaces reactive approaches such as patching.
RunSafe Code™ hardens code by randomizing and creating a unique memory layout for each binary and shared object at runtime with the RunSafe Transformation Engine™. Every instance is logically the same and this technique automatically creates software diversity while keeping the system functionally identical. Lynx is exploring how this can improve the system resiliency of platforms that embed Buildroot and/or LynxElement.
