“This certification is truly the gold standard for secure operating systems, and we are happy to have been recognized and rewarded for our hard work,” said Andrew Till, the company’s general manager. “It is incredibly rare for an OS like ours to be certified with EAL5 against a publicly recognized security profile.”
Trustonic was originally created by a joint venture between ARM, Thales and G&D.
This EAL5 certification follows Trustonic as the first provider to achieve a certificate of security on common criteria for a reliable product security environment for implementation in 2017, which paved the way for mass delivery of reliable services on connected devices.
Kinibi acts as a reliable operating system, running in parallel with the main operating system of smartphones and smart watches, and this new certificate supports its use in the automotive sector.
