RT-Thread IoT OS achieves PSA Security Certification to Continue Making the Internet of Things a Safer, Smarter Place

RT-Thread is an open source embedded real-time operating system and released under Apache License v2.0.

Shanghai, China, March 10, 2020 --(PR.com)-- With the joint efforts of RT-Thread, NXP and Arm, and based on the Arm Cortex-M33 processor, RT-Thread has achieved PSA security certification and PSA functional API certification, this achievement verified that RT-Thread build in security. As always, RT-Thread is committed to providing developers with a more secure, easy-to-develop, and component-rich operating system software platform.

The certification process has also helped RT-Thread to further improve security in various areas, including the addition of ARM Cortex-M33 security architecture adaptation to achieve TrustZone functionality; Porting TFM components to enhance the security of the software framework; Enable more secure OTA solutions, including firmware encryption, firmware verification, tamper-proof, etc. Supports SSL(Secure Socket Layer) mechanism to ensure the data is secure and will not be tampered during the communication. Security is the most critical part of the RT-Thread ecosystem, RT-Thread will continue working hard on this.

Meanwhile, RT-Thread global website is now live, the website includes the introduction of RT-Thread, RT-Thread's roadmap, resources & documentation, and a wide range of development tools of RT-Thread, etc, making it easier for the global developers to catch the project updates and the technical documentation.
