A new version of a secure hypervisor has been designed to offer military-grade protection for the latest generation of laptops, desktops, servers and embedded systems, helping protect these connected devices from malicious cyber attacks. With its small footprint, high performance and flexible virtualization support on the latest generation of Intel multicore processors, LynxSecure 5.1 from LynuxWorks brings the benefits of virtualization to users that have not had the opportunity to use virtualization before because of size or security issues. LynxSecure offers a truly secure multi-domain platform empowering users to have separate virtual machines for browsing and corporate functions on endpoints, and also giving the ability to securely host multiple tenants on a single blade for cloud and server implementations.

The latest LynxSecure version as demonstrated on one of the latest generation of endpoints, a Dell XPS13 Ultrabook, showcases new key features such as focus-based processor optimization, a new secure console for user interaction with the secure platform, and new virtual network support for increased inter-virtual machine communication. LynxSecure 5.1 is also the first version of LynxSecure that supports the 3rd Generation Intel Core processor family.

LynxSecure provides one of the most flexible secure virtualization solutions for use in Intel architecture-based embedded and IT computer systems. Designed to maintain the highest levels of military security and built from the ground up to achieve it, LynxSecure 5.1 now offers an industry-leading combination of security with functionality, allowing developers and integrators to use the latest software and hardware technologies to build complex multi-operating systems (OS)-based systems. LynxSecure 5.1 offers two types of device virtualization, either direct assignment of physical devices to individual guest OS for maximum security, or secure device sharing across selected guest OS for maximum functionality in resource-constrained endpoints such as laptops. LynxSecure also offers two OS virtualization schemes: para-virtualized guest OS such as Linux offering maximum performance; and fully virtualized guest OS such as Windows, Solaris, Chromium, LynxOS-178 and LynxOS-SE OS requiring no changes to the guest OS. Another key performance feature that LynxSecure offers is the ability to run both fully virtualized and para-virtualized guest OS that have Symmetric Multi-processing (SMP) capabilities across multiple cores.
