Freescale Alliance Partner
Icon Labs is a Freescale Alliance Member, providing Floodgate Firewall for Freescale boards running the MQX RTOS. Floodgate is integrated with the TCP/IP stack of Freescale Semiconductor’s MQX RTOS running on its Kinetis®, Vybrid™, Coldfire® and PowerQUICC® families of microprocessors and microcontrollers (MCUs).
Floodgate™ Firewall provides a critical layer of security that provides critical protection against Internet-based attacks targeting embedded devices. Floodgate provides rules-based filtering allowing whitelisting and blacklisting based on criteria such as port number, protocol, or source IP address. Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) provides dynamic packet filtering based on the state of a connection. Threshold-based filtering protects against denial of service attacks, broadcast storms, and other conditions that result in a flood of unwanted packets
