As a cybersecurity company we have to make sure all of our products are state of the art. To make sure we have the best DO-178 cryptography, wolfSSL is conducting Stages of Involvement (SOI) audits on our wolfCrypt product.
Last year wolfSSL added support for complete RTCA DO-178C level A certification. wolfSSL offers DO-178 wolfCrypt as a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) solution for connected avionics applications. The primary goal of this was to provide the proper cryptographic underpinnings for secure boot and secure firmware update in commercial and military avionics. Avionics developers now have a flexible, compact, economical, high-performance COTS solution for quickly delivering FIPS 140-2 validated crypto algorithms can be used in DO-178 mode for combined FIPS 140-2/DO-178 consumption.
Any aviation system development requires Stages of Involvement (SOI) audits to review the overall software project and ensure that it complies with the objectives of DO-178 cryptography. Originally, DO-178-based development did not require SOI’s, however a problem arose because of divergence between different development organizations and what the certification authorities wanted. As a result, SOI’s have become an informal de facto standard applied to most projects.
To assess compliance, there are four Stages of Involvement. The four stages are:
- Planning Review
- Design review
- Validation and Verification review
- Final Review
We have fully completed SOI #1 through #4, and have the best DO-178 cryptography on the market.
