Kaspersky launches its own highly secure OS

Russian publisher Kaspersky Labs has just announced the completion of the development of Kaspersky OS, its own security-oriented operating system.


It took almost 14 years for Kaspersky to develop and refine his own OS, the publisher having imposed itself as a constraint to propose the most secure system in the world.

No matter however consider download and install this OS on your PC, this OS is intended only for embedded computing systems. One of the first devices equipped with the OS is a Level 3 network switch proposed by Kraftway with 24 Gigabit Ethernet ports, all for data center storage.

Even if we can not currently benefit directly from the security offered by the OS, we could soon benefit from its benefits, especially through the use of secure connected objects.

Unfortunately, if Kaspersky is enthusiastic about announcing the availability of its OS, little is known about this system. In a blog note, however, Eugene Kaspersky Specifies however that it is an OS from scratch, and not any fork on Linux. Kaspersky OS is based on a "microkernel", a core reduced to the essential, which would, by default, limit the possibilities of hacking and attacks.

Securing the system is based on a complex authorization system: each application will have to justify its good health before being launched, on the basis of an electronic signature.

It remains to be seen whether Kaspersky OS will be sufficiently open to establish itself as a standard for the future and if the manufacturers dare to bet on this OS which is still mysterious to offer secure solutions to their customers.
