DornerWorks and RTX Enable Open Architecture With Security

Posted on August 1, 2023 by Matthew Russell

Cyber threats are escalating at an alarming rate and the lack of robust DevSecOps practices has left many embedded systems exposed. Thankfully, a collaboration between DornerWorks and Collins Aerospace, an RTX business, is set to reshape the landscape of cybersecurity to confront these threats. By combining their expertise, these two companies are delivering a cutting-edge technology that addresses the vulnerabilities faced by mission-critical systems.

DornerWorks SOSA-aligned software, integrating containers on a secure hypervisor, running on Collins flight hardware, enables cyber resilience for SWaP-constrained mission systems, mixed criticality architectures, and model-based development tools. This cutting-edge technology empowers organizations to respond rapidly to cyber threats while maintaining the highest level of security.

“We are thrilled to partner with Collins Aerospace in delivering this groundbreaking technology to the market,” said DornerWorks Business Development Director Dr. Gregg Wildes, PhD. “Our collaboration not only addresses the pressing need for robust cybersecurity but also enables organizations to adapt quickly to evolving threats. Together, we are revolutionizing the DevSecOps landscape and setting new standards for mission-critical system security.”

By leveraging the unique combination of the seL4 microkernel and containers, DornerWorks has significantly reduced the development and testing cycle, allowing for rapid response to emerging cyber threats. The integration of security at the foundational level enables organizations to react to threats in a matter of hours, rather than months. With this groundbreaking collaboration, warfighter responsiveness is enhanced, and the security of legacy software is fortified.

This solution has been commercialized by DornerWorks, building upon the success of the DARPA HACMS program.
