wolfSSL support for Green Hills INTEGRITY RTOS

Are you interested in using the wolfSSL lightweight SSL library on the Green Hills INTEGRITY RTOS? Although wolfSSL doesn’t currently have INTEGRITY support, we would like to gauge user and community interest to help us plan our schedule for the upcoming year. If you would like to see INTEGRITY support added to wolfSSL, please let us know at info@yassl.com.

From Wikipedia, INTEGRITY “is royalty-free, POSIX-certified, and intended for use in embedded systems needing reliability, availability, and fault tolerance. It is built atop the velOSity microkernel and is intended mainly for modern 32- or 64-bit embedded system designs that support an MMU.” To learn more about INTEGRITY, please visit the Green Hills website, here: http://www.ghs.com/products/rtos/integrity.html.
