Security Areas Covered by MVSecure

MVSecure's security services cover a wide array of crucial system security features. From Secure Boot and run-time integrity management to certificate storage and public key infrastructure (PKI) system configuration, MVSecure covers it all. Our expertise extends to production line security process implementation, SELinux, ARM TrustZone, and TPM setup. Moreover, MVSecure addresses specific configuration standards, such as Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG), IoT Security Foundation Framework (IOTSF), and other domain-specific or internal corporate security directives.

Navigating Evolving Security Landscape

The introduction of new security regulations, including the EU Cybersecurity Act and the US Executive Order On Enhancing Safeguards For United States Signals Intelligence Activities, has captured the attention of embedded system developers. These regulations usher in new standards and demands for security and defect handling processes in ICT products and services. At the same time, cybersecurity threats are becoming a major concern to embedded system developers due to their increasing complexity and severity. 

With a purpose of offering comprehensive guidance through these evolving frameworks, MontaVista introduces MVSecure system certification program to help you design a profoundly secure infrastructure for your next-generation embedded applications. MVSecure enables you to build your embedded systems against cybersecurity threats according to international standards and laws, such as Common Criteria and ISO security certification. We are currently reviewing the EU Cybersecurity Act to offer a service package that specializes in this framework. 

MVSecure certification program provides an excellent pathway to seamlessly certify your embedded systems and devices from development to their whole life cycle. With the support of MontaVista's Linux experts, your team will receive close assistance throughout the validation, testing, and documentation processes.

MVSecure Standard Process

A MVSecure project typically goes through a process as below: 

Step 1: Investigate 
MontaVista reviews your use case and explicit security requirements on the platform.

Step 2: Plan 
MontaVista plans a security threat analysis model and provides a prioritized set of security controls for the best return on investment, considering the criticality of your application.  

Step 3: Implement
MontaVista implements the security controls based on your feedback.

Step 4: Support
MontaVista provides long-term maintenance and support services to manage the security controls implemented in your system. 

MVSecure is often deployed together with other MontaVista products, such as Carrier Grade eXpress (CGX) or MVShield, but can be provided as a stand-alone service.
