Secure Transport on VxWorks

Hello, 

I have the stringent necessity for a secure transport, authorization and authentication on VxWorks-based systems I'm currently working on. The RTI Secure WAN Transport plugin would meet my requirements perfectly, but according to it's release note it is not available for VxWorks. Are there any other encryption solutions for DDS on VxWorks or is it possible to still use the Secure WAN Transport plugin somehow? 

Any help is highly appreciated,

Pete

Hello PeteMP,

  My name is Bert Farabaugh and I am a Field Applications Engineer at RTI.  I am looking into your question for you to determine what the appropriate alternatives would be to achieve your requirements on Vxworks.

Hello Pete

Turns out there is a potential path to get DDS Secure onto VxWorks, however there would be some restrictions on operation in kernel mode as well as some other restrictions.  If you like, you can contact me on email at bertf@rti.com to discuss these and what could potentially be done.

Thank you,

Bert
