Source-code versions of Mocana's NanoSSL and NanoSSH software are now available to users of Freescale Semiconductor's MQX real-time operating system (RTOS), boosting its security capabilities.

For $199, Freescale customers can download and use special MQX-optimised versions of Mocana's code and redistribute an unlimited number of binary copies in their own solutions without paying royalties.

NanoSSL and NanoSSH, when integrated into Freescale's Processor Expert configuration tool, allow developers to easily implement and customize commercial cryptography solutions using embedded components with no need for cryptography expertise.

NanoSSL and NanoSSH software provide secure connections to and from MQX-enabled devices while minimizing the impact on performance and flash/ROM use of Freescale processors. Compared to other SSL/SSH clients, Mocana is less than one-fifth the size. It uses FIPS 140-2 level 1 validated cryptographic algorithms. Mocana provides fully FIPS validated binaries of the software for various platforms as an upgrade.

Freescale MQX customers who need beefier versions can also purchase Mocana upgrades that would allow them to tap professional cryptographic features, including government certified FIPS 140-2 level 1 binaries, NSA "Suite B" and elliptic curve cryptography, TLS 1.2 support, sophisticated X.509 certificate management and massively-scalable server versions of NanoSSL and NanoSSH suitable for high-traffic carrier environments.
