Core freezes runtime at lock down to secure devices

Friday, 4 March 2005, 5:33 AM EST

Solidcore Embedded Solution is software that controls runtime by freezing the open source code on devices, enabling manufacturers to stop the code from being tampered with during production or in the field by unauthorized users.

This keeps out hackers, viruses, and the hapless end user without requiring continual virus updates and other security patches, says the company Solidcore.
