TSEP Kratos is an imaging and software installation toolkit. At present, TSEP Kratos supports all Microsoft operating systems as well as Linux derivatives.

With embedded devices it is necessary to modify the operating system specifically to the requirements of the customer. Such devices do not have an open operating system like a normal Windows PC, but define a corresponding work environment for the device software.

Normal software installation systems, designed and developed for end-user computers, cover the requirements of embedded devices only in part. Requirements such as distributed installations or safety aspects are not possible with these installation systems.

TSEP Kratos closes this gap and offers these functionalities. Based on TSEP's long-term experience with embedded devices, TSEP Kratos has been developed and further developed over the past 15 years.

TSEP Kratos can use the most current installation protocols (MSI, APT), or use the proprietary TSEP system to build cross-system installation packages. With TSEP Kratos, installation packages can also be distributed and installed over the network. If necessary, the communication can also be encrypted, which ensures that no malicious software is installed on the embedded device.

TSEP Kratos provides a high level of security for both the operating systems and the software installation, since these two components are one of the safety-critical components in an embedded device. Especially regarding the issues of malware or stability.
