Open Kernel Labs (OK Labs) and Sirrix Security Technologies have developed a platform that runs multiple trusted environments and secure services on custom and commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) mobile hardware.

The joint platform is designed to meet the secure mobile computing needs of government, defence, financial institutions and other organisations deploying secure applications. The combined technologies of the two companies provide and protect mobile access to critical assets, restricted information, and secure services, both on mobile devices and in remote data centres.

The joint prototype integrates Sirrix TURAYA Security Kernel (encryption, VPN, MTM/Attestation, and Trusted GUI) with the OK Labs OKL4 Microvisor, to host the Sirrix Trusted Mobile Desktop alongside Android, Linux, and other guest OS in OKL4 secure cells. The platform, which will run on N900 mobile hardware, will enable secure services and will target secured enterprise applications, hosting encrypted communications, secure voice and messaging, secure thin client hosting, and other software requiring high levels of trustworthiness.

The Sirrix-OK Labs platform will let OEMs, integrators, and IT teams build and deploy highly secure and trusted compute loads on standard mobile platforms. It supports both custom and COTS mobile systems, easing rollout of secure services and bringing trusted computing to a wider global audience.

"Our partnership with Sirrix takes Mobile-to-Enterprise virtualisation to the next level, enabling secure services across the mobile-wireless ecosystem" said Steve Subar, president and CEO, OK Labs. "Our collaboration will deliver a platform that meets the stringent security needs of government, military, and enterprise for trustworthy mobile computing."

The platform will be available in Q3.
