Green Hills Software speaker presentations include:

Topic: Embedded IPv6 - What's the beef?
When: Tuesday, April 23, 2013, 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM
Where: McEnery Convention Center; Room: 212 AC
Who: Thomas Cantrell, Engineering Manager, Embedded Networking, Green Hills Software

Synopsis: Embedded systems, from mobile devices to low-powered sensor networks, are becoming new members of the "Internet of Things," adding features such as field upgrade, remote management, and application downloads. The growth of these new devices adds further pressure to the nearly exhausted IPv4 address space. This class starts by talking about the reasons for the growth in IPv6 interest and customer requirements over the last year. It talks about the technical details of IPv6 in relation to traditional IPv4 networking. It then explores how to add and support IPv6 at the system level and at the application level.

Topic: Designing Your System for High Reliability
When: Wednesday, April 24, 2013, 9:15 AM - 10:15 AM
Where: McEnery Convention Center; Room: Salon 3
Who: Greg Davis, Director of Engineering, Green Hills Software

Synopsis: While 85% of embedded designs use C and C++, these languages are notorious for their inherent lack of safety. Many of the most common sources of errors are unlikely to show up during testing, and may manifest themselves later as costly product glitches and glaring security holes. This talk focuses on the tools and techniques that can be used to augment any software design paradigm. Techniques include coding conventions, automatic run-time error checking, manual compile-time and run-time assertions, static analysis, and the most common mistakes to avoid.

Topic: Tips and Tricks for Debugging
When: Thursday, April 25, 2013, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Where: McEnery Convention Center; Room: Salon 1
Who: Greg Davis, Director of Engineering, Green Hills Software

Synopsis: There is no shortage of courses and books written on programming and software design. Yet despite the fact that developers spend 80% of their time debugging code, relatively little attention is paid to debugging. This talk goes over a number of top techniques in how to get to the bottom of problems using a modern debugger and readily available tools. Design techniques to make debugging easier are also discussed.

Topic: Separate and Not Equal: Safety and Security Design in Real-Time Operating Systems
When: Thursday, April 25, 2013, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Where: McEnery Convention Center; Room: 212 BD
Who: Thomas Cantrell, Engineering Manager, Embedded Networking, Green Hills Software

Synopsis: Real-time operating systems by definition offer predictable scheduling behavior, but for a safety/security-critical system more is required. One other core function of the operating system must be to separate various elements of the system securely from each other. This course starts by looking at examples of mixed-criticality embedded systems, explores the safety and security interactions of the components in these systems, and then examines the ways real-time operating systems can secure the interactions. In addition, the course will briefly talk about various safety and security certifications including IEC 61508 and ISO 26262.

In booth #1320, Green Hills Software will offer a wide range of interesting presentations and demonstrations, including:

Main Stage Demonstrations

Solving complex embedded problems
For more than thirty years, Green Hills Software has solved the most challenging problems in embedded software. The presentation and live demonstration will show Green Hills Software's leadership in performance optimization, tools and techniques for maximizing developer productivity, and expertise in building safe, secure, and reliable embedded software.

Delivering product-differentiating security for Android devices
Connected mobile devices are commonplace in the enterprise. Nearly 70% of smartphones sold in 2012 run Android with a vast number of known and UNKNOWN vulnerabilities. This presentation will show how easy it is to exploit root vulnerabilities, remotely control devices and even extract critical data files. INTEGRITY Multivisor™, a separation kernel-based type-1 hypervisor, delivers the trusted mobile device architecture that secures Android devices for the enterprise.

Kiosk Demonstrations

Multimedia Rich Solutions
Next-generation devices need modern graphics capabilities. Green Hills Software will demonstrate OpenGL 3D capabilities for the INTEGRITY® RTOS on a Freescale i.MX6 Quad-core CPU. The combination of a high performance OpenGL stack with the safe, secure and real-time INTEGRITY separation kernel is ideal for safety-critical automotive and Class II-III medical devices. Middleware components featured include Vivante OpenGL drivers and Real Time Logic's Barracuda Application Server supporting HTML 5.

Advanced Debugging
To show how developers in the embedded Linux world can dramatically improve their debugging productivity, this demo will feature comprehensive, source-level debugging from boot loaders to applications. For developers of safety-critical systems, pre-qualified tools can save significant time throughout the development process. Green Hills Software will demonstrate the MULTI® IEC 61508:2010 (SIL 4), EN 50128:2011 (SWSIL 4) and ISO 26262 (ASIL D) pre-qualified tool suite on a TI Hercules microcontroller. The demonstration will also include the powerful TimeMachine™ debugger that takes advantage of the live CPU on-chip generated trace data of Xilinx Zynq processors.

Embedded to Enterprise Virtualization
A securely virtualized Android Jelly Bean-based platform features the world's first ARM Virtualization Extension (VE) enabled hypervisor, INTEGRITY Multivisor, running on a TI OMAP™ 5 processor. Multivisor's unique architecture provides hard real-time capabilities with fast boot performance. For mobile devices, demonstration will include the INTEGRITY Secure Smartphone - Trusted Mobile Device (INTEGRITY TMD) supporting dual personas running on a Galaxy Nexus Trusted Handheld. Also featured is an INTEGRITY PC™ workstation, which provides enterprise-level protection from hackers and malware.

Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) are increasing at an unprecedented rate. The threat landscape of today is drastically different than just a few years ago. Attacks are much more organized and sophisticated. They are harder to detect and even harder to anticipate. In the foreseeable future it's going to get a whole lot harder. Everything you know today will change. Keeping up with this changing landscape is already a daunting task. Your organization needs to use the latest tools, methods and expertise to guard against those threats. But will that be enough? In the foreseeable future attacks w...
