''Indian OS'' DRDO Introducing it's own Operating System to strengthen cyber Security


India's Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) Developing Country's own Operating System, which is likely to be ready in next three years.
"One of the major elements of cyber security is having our own operating system because today we are dependent on all OS systems which are imported whether it is based on Windows, Linux which is likely to be having malicious worms/things and hence it is essential that we have our own OS," Saraswat, DRDO Director-General said.
Saraswat said 150 engineers were working across the country on creating Indian OS, and added it will take at least three more years for getting the Indian OS ready and also said "It is our Indian effort...we are not having any foreign involvement in this,"

Defence researchers and scientists should start working together with industry and DRDO and other scientific departments and bring country's own operating system soon, so that "we are independent from what is coming from outside world," he stressed.

Earlier, speaking at the event, he said cyber security networking was very important today in view of everything being network centric and on Information Technology.
"We are having high speed communication across the nodes and we are passing information which is very very critical for our security, safety and economic security," he said.

Saraswat said, "Cyber security requires two elements of having our own hardware and our own software. Country needs to go in a big way in this regard."
