KasperskyOS is a specialized operating system designed for embedded systems with strict cybersecurity requirements. By design, KasperskyOS significantly reduces the chances of undocumented functionality and thus mitigates the risk of cyberattacks.
A massive undertaking that has taken Kaspersky Lab’s best talent 15 years to create, KasperskyOS is now commercially available to OEMs, ODMs, systems integrators and software developers around the world.
Key implementations of the operating system are tailored for the telecoms and automotive industries as well as critical infrastructure.
KasperskyOS has been designed to allow programs to execute only documented operations. Developing applications for KasperskyOS requires ‘traditional’ code to be created, as well as a strict security policy that defines all types of documented functionality. Only what is defined by this policy can be executed, including the functionality of the operating system itself.
The deployment flexibility
KasperskyOS is not a general-purpose operating system. It is designed for, and meets the requirements of, embedded devices and is aimed at three key industries: telecommunication, automotive and industrial.
In addition, Kaspersky Lab is also developing deployment packages for the financial industry (security of POS-terminals and thin client PS) and the security enhancement of critical operations for general-purpose Linux-based systems and endpoints in particular.
