Wind River Linux Secure, a secure embedded Linux that should be available in 1H11, is in evaluation by the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) to be certified to Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level 4+ (EAL4+). If it passes, it'll be the first commercial embedded Linux operating system accepted by NIAP. It will initially be available on some Intel, Power and ARM chips. Wind River also has a framework to automate the testing of Android apps.
