wolfSSL, provider of TLS cryptography and the world’s first commercial release of TLS 1.3 announces the commercial release of wolfBoot! wolfBoot is a secure bootloader that leverages wolfSSL’s underlying wolfCrypt module to provide signature authentication for the firmware.
“We are thrilled to provide a high quality, commercially supported bootloader option that leverages wolfSSL’s underlying wolfCrypt module. Finally a secure, open source bootloader option is available off the shelf, significantly reducing time to market,” said Larry Stefonic, CEO of wolfSSL Inc.
The role of a secure bootloader is to effectively prevent the loading of malicious or unauthorized firmware on the target. Additionally, wolfBoot provides a fail-safe update mechanism that can be interrupted at any time and resumed at next boot. wolfBoot is designed to be a portable, OS-agnostic, secure bootloader solution for all 32-bit microcontrollers, relying on wolfCrypt for firmware authentication. Due to its minimalist design and the tiny Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) API, wolfBoot is completely independent of any OS or bare-metal application and can be easily ported and integrated into existing embedded software solutions.
“We’re excited to offer a portable, OS-agnostic, secure bootloader solution for all 32-bit microcontrollers,” states wolfSSL CTO, Todd Ouska. “Leveraging wolfCrypt for firmware authentication, wolfBoot provides a secure solution completely independent of any OS or bare-metal application and can be easily ported and integrated into existing embedded software solutions.
wolfSSL’s software is available under two distinct licensing models: open source and standard commercial licensing. Businesses and enterprises who wish to incorporate wolfSSL products into proprietary appliances or other commercial software products for redistribution must license commercial versions. wolfSSL is the first to offer a commercial release of TLS 1.3.
