Icon Labs and Quadros systems have recently announced the availability of Icon Lab's FloodgateTM Packet Filter embedded firewall software for the RTXC Quadros real-time operating system.

Floodgate Packet Filter adds proven firewall security to Quadros-powered devices to protect from Internet-based attacks. The combined solution is designed to meet ANSI/ISA/IEC/TS 62443 standards for cyber security. The system is designed explicitly for use in embedded devices with limited memory and processor speeds that require secure network implementation certified to standards such as the ISASP 99 which is measured by the Wurldtech Achilles Test Platform.

The packet filter has been used to provide security for industrial control applications, small footprint industrial firewall appliances and MCU based control devices. It provides Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) and rules based filtering to protect embedded devices from real-world cyber-attacks. Rules-based filtering utilises white-listing and black-listing to define system criteria such as port number, protocol, or source IP address for protection. Floodgate also features Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) that provides dynamic packet filtering based on the state of the connection to a device.

RTXC Quadnet Ethernet-TCP/IP stack is a robust but small footprint networking solution for network-attached devices and gateways. It was built specifically for the unique needs of embedded systems but with RFC-compliance and a Berkeley sockets API. The Quadnet stack already offers advanced authentication and encryption features for IP-layer security (IPsec/IKE) and application security (SSL/TLS). The Floodgate Packet filter will add a layer of protection against threats such as packet floods, request storms, port scans, malformed IP packets and corrupted Ethernet frames.
