VMX Secure

The VMX Secure Platform is based on the VMX Secure Microkernel / Hypervisor which implements a true Separation Kernel. This provides the ability to host and secure multiple independent virtual machines into isolated "Secure Domains" for which there are no channels for information flow between domains other than those explicitly configured. These secure domains isolate trusted and untrusted (such as an OS domain in which a user may download applications) operating systems into independent isolated environments. Specialized security domain(s) for eWallet, Digital Rights Management (DRM), etc., management domains, Real Time Operating Systems (RTOS), and rich OS domains, such as Linux and Android can be configured.

VMX Secure is built on the VMX Smart PerfMan, Performance Manager, enabling building secure energy efficient devices.

The Platform provides the foundation for High Availability, fault tolerant systems. In addition to the isolation provided, the resource management supports the ability to both switch over and/or restart subsystems through realtime attestation of failing service level requirements or integrity validation. Rollback to a previous software checkpoint is also supported.

The Platform includes the VMX Secure RTOS, a POSIX compliant run-time environment for stand-alone and real-time applications, such as microcontrollers and modem stacks. Legacy RTOS applications can easily be ported to the POSIX real time environment.

VMX Secure is designed to protect systems against determined hacking, not just malware!

Android target compatibility:

XPerf application is designed to work with the latest Android distributions. Previous distributions supported down to Android 4.x

Target architecture compatibility: ARM, ARM 64, x86

The products can work on a various 32/64 bit platforms, from ARM, ARM64 or x86 targets. This means that it can work with virtually every mobile phone available on the market. However in order to use the product, the phone must be rooted.

Real-time platform monitoring

One of the features required by engineers is real-time platform monitoring. Data is collected from the target using a special coded low-overhead monitoring agent that sends data to the PC where it is processed.

Broad range of data sources: cpu/gpu/power/thermal/apps/system/custom

Engineers need a powerful and simple overview of the system resources, so that to be able to see what is going on in their system.

The application tries to provide exactly this sort of overview: cpu/gpu/system load/power/thermal/app. Each engineer understands very fast what state the system is in and he can monitor and improve his application or the system behavior.

This is a very powerful perspective over the system, from the power/thermal point of view.

The users can monitor one application and can easily see how the system reacts to the application load/behavior.

Powerful visualization of data

The display interface provides all sorts of features, freeze, zoom in and out, scroll through data, large window of data, scale shift and move, markers and statistics, signal color change.

Ability to add and process new data sources

The users can easily add new data sources using the specific CDS file format that provides quite a broad range of options and processing capability over the acquired data.

Data logging and offline data analysis

All data sources can be logged and post processed or playback. This way you can perform measurements sessions over very long periods of time and look or playback the data at a later time.

Monitoring over very long periods of time (days)

In order to see the power characteristic of a device or of an application over time you may need to perform measurements over very long periods, like days. The application can reliably work over long periods of time and provide you enough information to understand the behavior of the system during this time.

External EMeter (power measurement) device compatibility

The application was designed to work with VirtualMetrix EMeter, a power measurements device with high performance, providing dual channel power measurements and various auxiliary interfaces.

The dual channels can be simultaneously connected and watched in XPerf, ensure a comparative power measurement between the connected devices. This way you can connect 2 phones/embedded devices and configure them distinctly and watch the differences between the 2.

PC host compatibility: Windows and Linux

The application is compatible with both Windows and Linux operating systems, you can install it and use it on both systems, with minimum system requirements.

VMX Shield for Android

Available for license on Android Smartphones, Tablets and other devices bundled with VMX Smart PerfMan. VMX Shield AntiMalware is a powerful solution for protecting devices from the growing number of attacks and malicious applications. Most other current commercial antivirus solutions use static signatures, which can be lightweight and may detect malicious applications before their execution. However, they can be easily bypassed when using different code variants of the same malware. The major disadvantage is that, in most cases, static signatures cannot detect 0-day malware. Usually, it takes days, even weeks for the anti-virus companies to develop a signature for a new malware. VMX Shield AntiMalware for Android extensive behavioral data collection combined with static and dynamic analysis using advanced AI algorithms with little to no perceptible impact on performance to detect, isolate, or even delete malware from the device.

Based on customer configuration and the degree of suspicious activity detected, one of the 3 actions can be taken when malware or suspicious applications are detected on the device:

  • Alert: Notify the User to suspicious application activity.
  • Block: Prevent the application from running.
  • Uninstall: Delete the application from the device.

User control of the actions is also possible depending on the customer configuration.
