A Security Strategy for Avionics Systems - The Wind River Approach to DO-356A Certification
August 02, 2021
This paper outlines the principles behind avionics security and shows how Wind River® can help meet the objectives of DO-326A and DO-356A while maintaining strict compliance with DO-178C. The objective of a safe and secure platform is therefore achieved. DO-356A, “Airworthiness Security Methods and Considerations,” provides guidelines, methods and tools used in performing an airworthiness security process. DO-356A has the declared scope of protecting the airworthiness of an aircraft from any intentional, unauthorized electronic interaction that could compromise the safety of the aircraft itself. This white paper provides DO-356A mapping for Wind River Platforms, VxWorks 653 and Helix Virtualization Platform.
