SAN DIEGO, CA: Express Logic announces that its NetX Duo TCP/IP stack receives certification from SGS-TUV Saar for embedded development in safety-critical systems. The stack already has phase II IPv6–Ready Logo certification as well as IXIA IxANVL TCP/IP RFC validation. It further achieved safety certification for the stringent International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) 61508 SIL 4, IEC 62304 Class C, ISO 26262 ASIL D, and EN 50128 SW-SIL 4 safety standards.
NetX Duo is a dual IPv4 and IPv6 network stack designed for deeply embedded, real-time, and IoT applications. It provides embedded applications with core network protocols such as IPv4, IPv6, TCP, and UDP and reduces the malicious threats via add-on security products including Internet ProtocolSecurity (IPsec) and TLS.
SGS-TÜV Saar reviews all the features of NetX Duo test suite and performs “black box” testing over the entire NetX Duo TCP/IP stack. The testing exercises 100 percent of the generic NetX Duo C code — including 100 percent branch coverage. The safety manual documents ensures developers to use NetX Duo in safety-critical software development for even the most rigorous Safety Integrity Level (SIL 4) and Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL D), according to IEC 61508, IEC 62304, ISO 26262, and EN 50128.
Express Logic further announces the availability of NetX Secure socket for NetX Duo IPV4/IPV6 TCP/IP network stack. It leverages the Transport Layer Security (TLS) Protocol to prevent spying and tampering of data across the network. NetX Secure along with IPsec provides secure connectivity for IoT devices and standalone systems that require a small-footprint, and standards-based solution.
“This certification provides the most meaningful evidence of the exceptionally high quality of our NetX Duo product,” says William E. Lamie, CEO of Express Logic, Inc. “With this SGS-TÜV Saar certification, companies can simplify their certification process by using NetX Duo, save time and money, and reduce risk.”
