Express Logic’s renowned IoT platform receives FPIS 140-2 certification

by | Mar 16, 2019 | IoT Software Platforms

Express Logic has accomplished a unique achievement in the form of Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 certification. Express Logic made the official announcement on March 13, 2019 about its collaboration with atsec information security, which is one of the world’s most renowned security labs to get the certification for its NetX Crypto library.

Reports in various IoT newsletters indicate that the industrial grade X-Ware IoT platform has been able to accomplish the FIPS certification by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The FIPS 140 Publication Series was issued by NIST in May 2001 for ensuring the alignment of the requirements as well as standards for cryptography modules which are associated with hardware as well as software components.

The different sources of IoT information clearly reflect on the objectives of FIPS 140-2 that are directed towards safeguarding crucial and sensitive US government data as well as data from various financial and healthcare institutions which are gathered, stored, disseminated and shared by electronic means.

Security is one of the prominent factors that would be the major concern of the IoT landscape with the number of expected IoT devices to reach estimates in billions by 2020. Express Logic has appropriately capitalized on this demand for developing as a reliable provider of safety and security in the case of embedded IoT devices by leveraging its industrial-grade approach.

Latest IoT updates have also indicated details about the industrial-grade approach followed by Express Logic. The company utilizes pre-certification as well as SIL 4, ASIL D safety standards, TLS/DTLS, IPsec security protocols and standards and EAL4+ common criteria certification to ensure X-Ware IoT Secure Connectivity (SC). These crucial elements in the security verification approach followed by Express Logic can be held accountable for the comprehensiveness of security outcomes for various embedded devices in the IoT landscape.

The President of Express Logic, William E. Lamie has stated that the FIPS 140-2 certification for the X-Ware IoT platform would support customers in addressing strict requirements of government security thereby leading to improved time-to-market and improved security profile of the device. The certification of NetX Crypto library with FIPS 140-2 has been a notable development in emphasizing directly on the IoT security requirements within the embedded industry.
