The term "Internet of Things" is increasingly used to describe our present-day network of tens of billions of connected devices. In response to the increasing embedded nature of this network and the growing number and sophistication of threats to it, embedded software developer LynuxWorks presents LynxOS 7.0, the next generation of its popular RTOS. The core focus of version 7.0 of LynxOS is to give developers the tools to guard against threats at the operating system level, embedding military-grade security directly into its devices via features like access control lists, audit, quotas, local trusted path, account management, trusted menu manager and OpenPAM. This release also features networking support for common protocols utilized in both long- and short-haul networks. In order to satisfy demanding real-time QoS requirements of certain market segments, LynuxWorks has partnered with key middleware providers, such as Real-Time Innovations, Inc. (RTI), to port their offerings to the LynxOS platform.
