Wind River VxWorks MILS Platform 2.0 Supports GE Fanuc SBCs

The Wind River VxWorks MILS Platform 2.0 is now available on GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms’s VPXtreme3 SBC310 3U VPX, VPXtreme6 SBC610 6U VPX, and PowerXtreme PPC9A 6U VMEbus single board computers. The MILS architecture enables applications with different data security levels, or data from different domains, to co-exist securely on a single hardware platform. The availability of VxWorks MILS Platform on GE Fanuc’s SBCs enables complex, sensitive, highly secure systems to be deployed in applications and environments where small size, low weight, and minimal power consumption are prerequisites.

Wind River VxWorks MILS Platform 2.0 responds to the growing requirement for MLS (Multi Level Secure) and CDS (Cross Domain Solutions) applications in which data with varying levels of security – such as top secret, secret, confidential and unclassified – can be processed securely on a common hardware platform. Historically, such applications would have been deployed on multiple hardware platforms (one for each level of security) linked by security-compliant channels, but the VxWorks MILS Platform enables deployment on a single platform, providing significant savings opportunities in space, weight, power, and cost. Its availability on GE Fanuc’s SBC310 enhances this opportunity while broadening the range of environments in which such systems can be deployed.

The Wind River VxWorks MILS Platform is currently in evaluation by the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) for conformance to the Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level (EAL) 6+ / NSA High Robustness under the Common Criteria Evaluation and Validation Scheme (CCEVS), which evaluates information technology (IT) product conformance to the Common Criteria international standard.
