Wind River acquires Star Lab to improve its Linux security


Once upon a time Wind River was best known as a leading embedded operating system (VxWorks) and Linux (Wind River Linux) company. It still is. But things have changed. Now its customers want their devices to work in the world of the Internet of Things (IoT) and that requires much better security. That’s one reason why Wind River just acquired the Linux security company Star Lab.

Star Lab brings its Titanium Security Suite to Wind River’s table. It uses a threat model that assumes an attacker will gain root (admin) access to your system, but makes it harder for them to do your system any harm.
