Wireless security in embedded products

Digi International introduced NET+OS 7.4, the latest version of its royalty free software platform for network enabled embedded system development.

NET+OS 7.4 features Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) to make security in embedded products simple to configure and easy to deploy. WPS automatically configures the WPA and WPA2 parameters for wireless networks. Embedded developers can now provide WPS configuration in their wireless embedded products using any Digi embedded wireless module.

WPS is well suited for environments where strong wireless security and data integrity is required such as in medical devices to protect patient information or to protect the transfer of financial data in retail and gaming applications.

NET+OS 7.4 is a solution for developing secure wireless embedded products with Digi embedded modules. It provides a turnkey solution specifically designed and optimized for Digi’s own NET+ARM processors and embedded modules. In addition to WPS, NET+OS 7.4 includes a royalty-free distribution of ThreadX Real-Time Operating System (RTOS) from Express Logic, Digi ESP, a complete Eclipse-based integrated development environment, and a rich variety of networking and security services.

NET+OS 7.4 Digi JumpStart Kits with WPS are available for $499 or less and as a free upgrade to customers using earlier versions of NET+OS 7.
