Other new features in ELinOS 7.1.2 include support for secure communication channels using the wolfSSL extension "embedded TLS library", which is a lightweight, proprietary solution for TLS/SSL-based communication in embedded systems. The new version also includes numerous bug fixes and security updates (including the closure of the recently discovered critical security hole in the GNU C library glibc). In addition, ELinOS 7.1.2 introduces the new License Checker tool ScanCode. This can be applied to external modules, e.g., OSS source code archives, to generate a list of licenses used.
"With the minor release 7.1.2, we are taking a very big step this time and now empowering system integrators to deploy a much more secure system out-of-the-box and giving them a means for a further sensible security and update strategy. With regard to the upcoming Cyber Resiliance Act, we are well positioned. We are working hard to make ELinOS a high security Linux for embedded devices and are proud that we can now add another mosaic stone to this success story", says David Engraf, Head of Product Development Embedded Linux ELinOS at SYSGO.
