HCC Embedded Releases MISRA-Compliant Embedded SSL/TLS Package that Brings New Levels of Embedded Security and Quality to the Internet of Things

HCC Embedded today announced the release of a SSL/TLS implementation designed for use in high quality, high performance embedded applications. When used in conjunction with HCC’s MISRA-compliant TCP/IP stack, it provides an unrivalled combination of verifiable quality and optimal speed and memory utilization.

The new SSL/TLS implementation can be used as Client or Host and is designed especially for microcontrollers, ensuring a low memory footprint, typically around 20kB ROM / 8kB RAM. Typically it uses a standard sockets interface and will bring ease of integration to many embedded applications. HTTP or FTP Server support is provided for HTTPS and FTPS implementations or connection to any other secure client or server application.

Key features include:

  • SSL3.0, TLS1.0/1.1/1.2
  • Full certificate management
  • All mandatory cipher suites supported including AES, DES, DSS, EDH, MD5, RSA, SHA

All algorithms are implemented as individual libraries and, where possible, use crypto hardware support provided on specific microcontrollers.

The stack is provided with a full MISRA compliance report, and for specialized applications, a full UML description is available that can be licensed as a separate component.

Developed according to HCC’s Advanced Embedded Framework (AEF) rules, the stack can easily integrate with any embedded RTOS, toolchain or microcontroller. Director of Marketing David Brook said, “Internet security is fundamental as embedded devices are connected to the Internet in increasingly innovative applications such as smart metering and medical devices. HCC is committed to solving the complex security issues such connectivity brings.”
