wolfSSL Announces wolfSentry, An IDPS For IoT And Embedded Systems

wolfSentry is a universal, dynamic, embedded IDPS (intrusion detection and prevention system). An embedded firewall engine (both static and fully dynamic), with lookup of known hosts/netblocks. wolfSentry is dynamically configurable and can arbitrarily associate user-defined events with user-defined actions, contextualized by connection attributes, tracking the evolution of the network transaction profile.

Edmonds, WA (PRWEB) - wolfSSL, the leading provider of TLS cryptography and the world’s first commercial release of TLS 1.3, announces wolfSentry, the universal, dynamic, embedded IDPS (intrusion detection and prevention system).

wolfSentry will be fully integrated into the wolfSSL library, wolfMQTT, and wolfSSH, with optional call-ins and callbacks that give application developers turnkey IDPS across all network-facing wolfSSL products, with a zero-configuration option. These integrations will be available via simple --enable-wolfidps configure options in wolfSSL sibling products.

“This is a game changer in embedded and IoT security”, says wolfSSL CEO and co-founder, Larry Stefonic. “The wolfSentry engine is dynamically configurable through an API, or from a textual input file. Callback and client-server implementations will also be supplied to deliver advanced capabilities including remote logging through MQTT or syslog, and remote configuration and status queries, all cryptographically secured.”

Notably, wolfSentry is designed from the ground up to function well in resource-constrained, bare-metal, and real time environments. Algorithms stay within designated maximum memory footprints and maintain deterministic throughput. Opportunities for use of wolfSentry include RTOS IDPS, and IDPS for ARM silicon and other common embedded CPUs and MCUs. wolfSentry with a dynamic firewall can add as little as 64k to the code footprint, and 32k to the volatile state footprint, and can fully leverage the existing logic and state of applications and sibling libraries.

The first beta release of wolfSentry is planned for April 2021, with turnkey product integrations to follow.
