Valuable experience from current projects

CVE Monitoring

egislators as well as the compliance departments of operators increasingly expect manufacturers to provide IT security management processes in order to guarantee the respective current software version. The reality, however, is that industrial products and critical infrastructure often contain outdated and insecure software components.

emlix focuses on economical software life-cycle management for embedded Linux systems.

Safe Linux

With the extent to which high-performance CPUs are taking over safety-critical areas, the necessity increases of providing a high-performance operating system that is able to fully utilize the resources of the hardware. Linux is increasingly being chosen for this purpose.

In this context, emlix is an active player with projects in the areas of medical technology, industry and automotive, in which embedded Linux has become established in the area of functional security.

Security Audit

Outdated and therefore insecure software components in industrial products or critical infrastructure are a major risk factor in terms of cyber attacks. Norms such as IEC 62304 for medical device software as well as the compliance departments of customers therefore expect increased IT security management processes and sophisticated risk evaluation.

For a fast evaluation and improvement of the IT security of existing systems with open source software, the emlix Security Audit provides a simple and economical basis.
