Built on a vision that the latest software is the most secure, software updates are central to the FoundriesFactory security story. What happens, however, when software delivery is compromised? Is recovery complicated? Enter TUF key rotation!
The days of building monolithic embedded Linux systems are coming to an end. Security vulnerabilities, both on the software and hardware side are driving the embedded industry to adopt new ways to develop these systems. The writing has been on the walls for a while now, and this shift away from monolithic applications to microservices has been happening in the cloud for many years. The “internet of things” and “edge” computing have brought cloud developers closer to embedded systems than ever before.
Earlier this year, I found myself pushing the idea of an “anonymous mode“ for the Aktualizr project which is the OTA agent running in the LMP. This turned into “aktualizr-lite” and has recently become the default OTA agent used by the LMP. This article explains what aktualizr-lite is and why we are using it.
Edge devices are now at the frontline of security attacks on manufacturing and enterprise organisations. Hackers are extorting more money out of a wider range of companies and corporations, with the latest estimates being that attacks have increased by 500% in the last year.
Why is there no Android or Red Hat Enterprise Linux for IoT and Edge devices? The “one size fits all” approach of a modern Linux distro does not meet the requirements of the IoT and Edge markets because of the diversity of hardware and use cases - from cellular-connected sensors, to industrial IoT infrastructure, to gateways and even autonomous vehicle computing. More complex use-cases and more powerful processors almost universally use some variant of Linux. Simpler devices such as sensors typically use an RTOS. In this article we focus on Linux - a future article will explore the many RTOS options.
