Pengutronix Talks at ELC-E in Prague

Robert Schwebel | | Event, Talk

The autumn conference highlight is the Embedded Linux Conference Europe (ELC-E), which takes place in Prague this year. The Pengutronix team will be present with four talks and two demo points / showcases, presenting current open source projects (RAUC, labgrid, etnaviv).

Two talks will take place on monday, 2017-10-23:

  • OP-TEE: Using Trust Zone to Protect Your Own Secrets: At 09:00, Marc Kleine-Budde talks about OP-TEE: since Linux 4.12, the infrastructure to use the Trusted Execution Environment on modern ARM cpus was merged into the mainline kernel. Marc shows how it can be used to store secret information in a (probably) secure way.
  • Automation Beyond Testing and Embedded Systems Validation: At 17:10, Jan Lübbe talks about the recent progress with automation in continuous testing setups and about the labgrid framework.

Another two takls will take place on wednesday, 2017-10-25:

  • Stable Device Tree ABI: It's Possible: At 14:15, Lucas Stach talks about strategies for ABI stability of the open firmware device tree.
  • Zerocopy Video Streaming the Easy Way: Finally, at 16:15, Philipp Zabel and Michael Tretter talk about how to use zerocopy mechanisms to avoid bandwith waste when streaming media on modern ARM cpus.

In addition, several open source projects relevant for us will be shown as part of the Technical Showcase on tuesday, 2017-10-24:

  • Etnaviv, the open source drivers for the i.MX6 3D graphics hardware
  • RAUC: Robust Auto Upgrade Controller
  • labgrid: test automation for continuous testing of embedded linux systems

Yocto Project Virtual Summit 2021

Enrico Jörns | | Event, Yocto
On Tuesday, 25th and Wednesday, 26th, the 3rd edition of the Yocto Project Virtual Summit took place on the internet. With a fair ticket price of 40$ Pengutronix developers Jan Lübbe and Enrico Jörns got a 2-day long wild ride through the latest features, workflows and experiences with the Yocto Project.

Wie man (k)ein Betriebssystem für Produkte baut

Distributionen wie Raspbian lassen die passgenaue Zusammenstellung eines Betriebssystems kinderleicht aussehen. Image herunterladen, Pakete installieren, noch ein paar Änderungen - fertig. Alles wie auf dem Laptop oder Server. Warum ein Betriebssystem aus einer klassischen Distribution im Produkt-Kontext zur Katastrophe führen kann, beleuchtet der Vortrag "Raspbian vs. Build-Systeme: Das richtige Werkzeug für solide Produkte".

Safe and Secure Field Updates of Embedded Linux Systems

Enrico Jörns | | RAUC, OTA, Talk

In this blog post I would like to address the challenges of performing unattended and verified updates of embedded Linux systems in the field using open source software and workflows. While updating is not a end in itself, a second part of my considerations goes even further and also works out the necessities and possible workflows for keeping the software stack of a project up to date and thus either preventing security issues or at least enabling a short reaction time in case of severe CVE'S discovered.
