Codenomicon Launches Verification Program for Critical Systems

CodeVerified Status to Only Be Awarded to Products of Superior Security and Robustness

SARATOGA, CA, and LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwired) -- 08/06/14 -- Codenomicon, a leading developer of proactive cybersecurity solutions, today announced the launch of its new security and robustness verification program, CodeVerify. The program is tailored for manufacturers of critical systems, such as industrial control systems and medical devices, to improve product security as a part of their development process. Codenomicon will only award the CodeVerified status to those products, upon extensive external review, that demonstrate the highest levels of maturity specific to security and robustness.

"As the Internet of Things continues to progress, a higher level of visibility is required to ensure true safety and security. While our customers have found our tools to be invaluable in helping them build more secure and robust devices, they are looking for a best-of-breed standard to set as a baseline goal for security," says David Chartier, CEO of Codenomicon.

"CodeVerify caters to the demands of these leading companies who have been asking for a benchmarking standard so that as they continue with their testing and analysis, they can easily compare their products against the most mature, secure and robust standards. Using Codenomicon tools allows them to test and gain visibility at the highest levels. CodeVerified confirms this status to the industry at large."

The CodeVerify program is intended to provide security and robustness testing metrics for a wide range of industries, including industrial control systems, medical devices, automotive, networking equipment, software applications, and mobile applications. The program works in two very important ways:

  • Provides manufacturers of critical systems with the capabilities they need to ensure the security and robustness of their products. All the testing expertise needed is built into the automated tools enabling manufacturers to establish a superior development process without straining their resources.
  • Gaining the CodeVerified status demonstrates a commitment to security, quality and robustness to customers through independent confirmation that products are secure and robust against external attacks.

"These are industries that are rapidly embracing connectivity after a long history of isolation, amplifying the need to a heightened standard of security," says Mike Ahmadi, Global Director of Critical Systems Security at Codenomicon. "In an answer to this shift, we have noticed a keen interest for our testing, intelligence and security products across these critical industries that power the connected world. The CodeVerify program is designed to make this transition far more smooth and secure."

CodeVerify engages a four-step process including three internal test phases including automated testing tools and a rigorous external review by Codenomicon experts. Steps one and two include extensive scanning of product software and product interfaces, reviewing open source and third party software and any security and identifying all product interfaces that are open to attacks. Thirdly, all the protocol implementations in the open interfaces are tested with Codenomicon's award-winning Defensics security testing solutions. Finally, all test results are sent to Codenomicon for independent assessment and verification.

The Codenomicon Defensics test platform is already used in a number of industries to verify the security and robustness of critical systems. Verizon uses Codenomicon Defensics as its lab entry criteria and the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) uses Codenomicon test tools in its cybersecurity laboratory. Software companies and open source development organizations, network equipment manufacturers, government agencies and critical infrastructure operators rely on Codenomicon's solutions and expertise to ensure the security and resilience of deployed services and network equipment.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
