Star Lab, a leading provider of embedded security solutions for complex systems, announced today that it has successfully demonstrated interoperability of its Crucible product suite with Xilinx’s UltraScale™+ MPSoC.

Star Lab’s Crucible product is a suite of embedded virtualization and operating system hardening capabilities that work together to ensure the confidentiality and integrity of embedded mission systems – especially in the face of dedicated hackers and reverse engineers. In stark contrast to most endpoint security solutions, Crucible assumes an attacker will have hands-on physical access and/or gain root-level execution control, and still ensures the at-rest and runtime security of operational configurations, critical applications, and sensitive data.

Crucible makes both cyber attacks and reverse engineering substantially more difficult through software encryption, dynamic integrity-based key generation, secure boot, and runtime isolation of sensitive applications, operating systems, virtual machines, and data files.

Crucible currently supports a range of embedded computing environments – from system-on-a-chip (SoC) embedded FPGA and ARM devices to 3U/6U/ATCA racks of high-performance Intel-based servers, and is designed for easy integration into both existing and new platforms. Crucible is currently being evaluated and adopted to address system integrity and cyber resilience requirements in several mission critical markets, including multiple defense platforms, automotive systems, consumer electronics, and industrial internet applications.

According to Xilinx, “the UltraScale™ MPSoC Architecture is built on TSMC’s 16FinFET+ process technology and enables next-generation Zynq® UltraScale+ MPSoCs. Building on the industry success of the Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC family, the new UltraScale MPSoC architecture extends Xilinx SoCs to enable true heterogeneous multi-processing with ‘the right engines for the right tasks’ for smarter systems.

Star Lab recently joined Xilinx’s Partner Alliance Program; a worldwide ecosystem of qualified companies collaborating with Xilinx to further the development of All Programmable technologies. By demonstrating that Star Lab software security products seamlessly integrate with Xilinx hardware technologies, the risk to both company’s end-use customers is greatly reduced in both production and post-production environments.
