Star Lab, the industry leader in security solutions for complex systems, today announced that its Linux Unprivileged Root Environment (LURE) and Crucible secure embedded virtualization products are now commercially available. With the production releases of both LURE and Crucible, Star Lab has further established itself as the leading provider of cyber protections for embedded systems.

Most traditional endpoint security solutions fail to address situations in which an attacker has hands-on physical access, or gains software-based access to the system – both of which are inevitable with these classes of devices. With traditional security approaches, once an attacker has gained administrative privileges it’s game-over and they are free to inspect the device’s behavior, find remotely-exploitable vulnerabilities, steal IP/data, modify configurations, and gain unauthorized access to the device’s hardware resources.

Star Lab’s LURE and Crucible offerings enable security-conscious customers, across a range of industries, to provide secure software updates, enforcement and integrity verification of system configuration, operating system hardening and attack surface reduction, hardware resource access control, application containerization, intellectual property / data protection, jailbreak prevention / execution of unauthorized applications, and runtime isolation of sensitive applications, operating systems, virtual machines, and data files.

Irby Thompson, Star Lab’s President/CEO, commented on the announcement by adding that “LURE and Crucible accelerate embedded software security to the next level and give our customers an exceptionally strong capability to maintain safety-critical and security-critical functionality – even in the face of the most dedicated hackers and reverse engineers.”
