Allegro Software Announces Integrated Embedded Device Security And FIPS 140-2 Compliance

At the RSA® Conference 2013 in San Francisco, CA, Allegro, a leading supplier of Internet software for embedded devices, today announced the addition of the FIPS 140-2 compliant Allegro Cryptography Engine, ACE, to the RomPager® suite of embedded internet toolkits. Specifically engineered for the rigors of embedded computing, ACE makes embedding standards-based security protocols into resource sensitive embedded systems such as military, energy and healthcare embedded applications fast, easy and reliable while decreasing time to market.

FIPS 140-2

Billions of embedded systems are quietly working behind the scenes of almost all modern technologies, from automobiles and factory floors, healthcare networks and new medical devices, defense and energy markets to space exploration missions. Increasingly, these critical embedded systems are built from commercial products, and often incorporate standards-based network connectivity. Early networked desktop PCs and servers were unprepared to address the new security implications of network connectivity. The same is true for many of today’s embedded systems which presents a significant new security concern that must be addressed immediately and systematically. Many industries, especially post 9-11, now have a heightened awareness that embedded systems and larger enterprise systems with embedded devices are vulnerable to all types of Internet attacks. Within the government, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and National Security Agency (NSA) have taken steps to ensure security and compatibility between communicating computers by defining Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS). Working together they have specifically identified a set of guidelines (FIPS 140-2) for cryptographic-based security systems to protect sensitive information in computer and telecommunication systems, whether desktop or embedded, and asserted the requirement that vendors must comply to these standards to sell and support the government or its contractors. In addition to the government systems market, the FIPS 140-2 standards have been adopted by the financial (Check21, etc.), energy (Smart Grid) and healthcare (HIPAA, HITECH, etc.) industries to safe-guard their data.

ACE and Embedded Device Security

The Allegro Cryptography Engine (ACE) is a cryptographic library module specifically engineered to meet the critical needs of embedded computing systems in addition to fulfilling the requirements needed for FIPS 140-2 validation. The module provides embedded systems developers with a common software interface to enable bulk encryption and decryption, message digests, digital signature creation and validation, and key generation and exchange. In 2005, the NSA defined a set of cryptographic algorithms that when used together, are the preferred method for assuring the security and integrity of information passed over public networks such as the Internet. Today, Suite B is globally recognized as an advanced standard for cryptography that defines algorithms and strengths for encryption, hashing, calculating digital signatures and key exchange. ACE includes a platform independent, government-certified implementation of the NSA Suite B defined suite of cryptographic algorithms.

"The next-generation of network-enabled embedded systems must meet the need for high encryption standards to ensure data privacy,” says Bob Van Andel, President of Allegro. “The availability of Allegro’s validated ACE FIPS toolkit significantly reduces development, integration and testing time, while giving our customers the security they need.” ACE is delivered as ANSI-C source toolkit and will be available in Q2-2013. Stop by Allegro’s booth at the RSA Conference 2013, Booth #238 to discuss embedded device security and your product designs.
