Green Hills Software has developed a range of solutions, including the INTEGRITY Real-Time Operating System (RTOS) and INTEGRITY Padded Cell secure hypervisor, which provide a proven framework for building secure and safe applications. These solutions are designed for demanding, real-time requirements and run on a broad set of Intel processors. This white paper describes how Intel and Green Hills virtualization technologies enable IT departments and equipment manufacturers to secure both critical control applications and corporate software like email, web browsing and e-commerce. For the shop floor, the Green Hills IEC 61508 certified kernel can be used to develop highly reliable real-time controllers that meet stringent safety standards.
