Linux in embedded security devices: a showcase

As we all know, GNU/Linux has become a very stable and secure operating system. Companies worldwide are starting to see this and have come to a point where linux really is a key differentiator in their product portfolio.

One of such product portfolios is the latest product line of IDCS, a company specialised in Integrated Security & Video Systems. By integrating standard open source products like openssl, apache, postgresql and others, IDCS has build a range of IP-based security devices for access control.

This presentation will discuss:

  • system architecture
  • open source components
  • benefits of linux
  • mesh networks using PoE and SSL
