Pengutronix Becomes Yocto Project Participant
Not at least since the Yocto project cannot be thought away from the embedded world, Pengutronix successfully also uses OpenEmbedded next to PTXdist as a distribution build tool in various projects for several years.
Since then, we have always been as close as possible to the widely spreaded community, either through participation in conferences such as the OEDEM, various BoFs at the Embedded Linux Conference Europe or through discussion and contributions on the various mailing lists.
We are pleased that now with the official listing as Yocto-Project Participant our contributions to the Yocto and Embedded community are visibly appreciated. We take this as a further incentive, to continue improving the reproducibility, stability and security in the development of embedded Linux system through robust build tools such as PTXdist or OpenEmbedded.
In its current master branch, RAUC now supports encrypted Bundles. This tutorial will introduce you to the basics of using encryption in RAUC and show how to use it in a simplified Yocto setup with the meta-rauc Layer.
RAUC is an update framework for safely deploying verified updates on your embedded Linux devices. It ensures atomicity of the update process to protect from sudden power outages, hardware failures, etc. So, why would one like to run RAUC on an emulated platform?
