Turaya is an implementation of the EMSCB security architecture, providing strong isolation and multilaterally secure policy enforcement of legacy applications. Turaya is based on the PERSEUS Security Framework and on the L4-Mikrokernel.
So far (by June, 19th 2006), two prototypes have been presented as proof-of-concept of the Turaya Technology:
- Turaya.Crypt is a device encryption system and provides user-transparent encryption of commonly used storage devices such as hard-disks and USB memory sticks.
- Turaya.VPN is a secure communication client and fully transparent to the user. The VPN client is based on IPSec and interoperable with common VPN servers.
TPM Support: Turaya uses a TPM to check the integrity of the Turaya security kernel. The integrity of the device encryption application itself is measured by the Turaya security kernel.
Downloads: The Turaya proof-of-concept is now ready for download. Please download the source files at the Turaya download-page.
Turaya has been developed within the EMSCB Project and is partly funded by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology of Germany (BMWi). The proof-of-concept applications Turaya.Crypt and Turaya.VPN are communicated by Sirrix AG.
