Wind River has introduced three Solution Accelerators for Android
Security that enhance Android-based device security with advancements
around Security Enhanced (SE) Android, partitioning, and secure boot
processes. The new modules include:
SE Android: Set of
enhancements added to the open source SE Android project that address a
variety of vulnerabilities to make SE Android suitable for commercial
use. The module also enables specialized policies as demanded by
enterprises and IT departments, such as restricted privileges and
customized application download policies.
Lightweight Partitioning: Security
isolation providing multiple encrypted partitions where data can be
kept secure. Isolated operation modes allow different user and work
purposes on a single device as multiple personas, and expands device
usage models with specialized access to varying security domains such as
top secret or classified data.
Secure Boot: Security
components for verifying and validating each stage of the boot process
before being executed, including advanced authentication to prevent
malicious software from running. Module secures the boot process without
affecting boot time
