MISRA-compliant TLS 1.3 stack for robust network security

HCC Embedded (HCC) has added a fully MISRA-compliant TLS (Transport Layer Security) 1.3 module to its TCP/IP stack.

The TLS 1.3 builds on its TLS 1.2 offering and its long involvement with TLS to support developers in terms of greater simplicity and robustness making communication in their critical embedded designs faster and more secure.

TLS 1.3 offers greatly improved security, privacy, and performance, making it the most reliable way to implement transport layer security for general communication. The simplified and more secure protocol translates to greater internet security, and protocol optimisations deliver better performance.

All browsers support or will support TLS 1.3 soon, making it the network security protocol of choice. HCC’s TLS 1.3 module is differentiated by a full MISRA compliance report that, combined with HCC’s long-standing commitment to quality, reduces the probability of a security failure.

HCC TLS 1.3 Key Features:

  • Conforms to the HCC Advanced Embedded Framework
  • Designed for integration with both RTOS and non-RTOS based systems
  • MISRA-compliant; a full MISRA compliance report is provided
  • Designed for microcontrollers, ensuring a small memory footprint
  • Uses a standard sockets interface for easy integration with many embedded applications
  • Conforms to RFC 8446

“Many of the greatest security failures in the internet have been caused by poor quality coding,” said Dave Hughes, CEO, HCC Embedded. “HCC continues to set the highest standards for embedded development. Always our security focus is better quality code. We have applied this to our release of TLS 1.3 and built on our past TLS experience to give the embedded developer the best tool for ensuring the efficiency and security of their product.”
