Real Time Logic Releases SharkSSL [Health & Beauty Close - Up]

(Health & Beauty Close - Up Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Real Time Logic, device web server and security specialist, now supports TLS 1.2 with its security and encryption in the latest version of SharkSSL, a compact, cryptographic engine that delivers high-performance security.

In a release, the Company noted that SharkSSL Version 2.5 extends its secure connectivity for resource-constrained, small-footprint processors to low-cost, high-volume ASIC-powered M2M devices commonly used in networks for municipal utility monitoring, medical record transmission, secure building access and monitoring, and smart grid frameworks where secure message passing is essential.

In integrating TLS 1.2 into SharkSSL, Real Time Logic implements a cryptographic algorithm, encryption, and message authentication to secure TCP/IP communications at the enterprise level into the small, resource-constrained footprint of an embedded device.

SharkSSL implements the new Secure Hash Algorithm-256 (SHA-256), which replaces outdated hash functions and can be used to verify the integrity of copies of the original data without compromising the source.

The latest version of SharkSSL also supports the internationally adopted Advanced Encryption Standard and Galois/Counter Mode- technologies that combine message encryption and authentication into a single function that can be transferred at high throughput rates by taking advantage of the parallel processing of the architecture. Fine-tuned to take advantage of hardware functionality, SharkSSL offloads encryption libraries to crypto units on high-bandwidth platforms commonly found in ASICs or processors such as Freescale's ColdFire or Kinetis K60.

"With projections indicating that the M2M market will be worth $198 million by the end of 2018, high-volume ASIC devices will underlie much of the infrastructure that we depend on," said Wilfred Nilsen, CEO, Real Time Logic. "With the increasing threat of cyberattack, it is critical that we secure this infrastructure at the device level in order to ensure that all possible avenues for exploitation have been secured. By SharkSSL delivering not only this level of security, but also the high throughput now demanded by the most advanced applications, it addresses many of the critical pain points OEMs struggle to meet today." SharkSSL V2.5 is capable of performing a private RSA operation in 100 ms on a Cortex-M3 running at 100 MHz.

SharkSSL includes a specifically designed and optimized, C code SMTP library.

Available as source code, SharkSSL code can be implemented on any processor off the shelf. The SharkSSL library has been successfully deployed on ARM, Freescale, and PowerPC-based FPGA architectures.

Out-of-the-box operating system support includes INTEGRITY, MQX, SMX, ThreadX, VxWorks, EBSnet, rtplatform, uCLinux, Linux, and Windows. It can also be used in bare-metal (no OS) configurations. Multi-threading is available for added performance when using an OS that supports multi-threading.

SharkSSL V2.5 is available immediately and comes with full source code and royalty-free licenses. The SMTP library and prototype applications included with SharkSSL are free.

Real Time Logic provides security and web functionality on compact, low-power devices.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
