Talk at All Systems Go 2017 Conference
Before the ELC-E conference starts in Prague, Berlin hosts the All Systems Go conference, the successor of the systemd conference. In times of increasing IT security incidents with IoT devices, updating such systems in a secure and reliable way becomes more and more important. Michael Olbrich's talk outlines the challenges and possible solutions for a robust update process.
Common system update patterns from the IT world can not be simply transferred to IoT devices, which usually don't have an administrator and thus need to have absolutely relyable mechanisms for unattended updates.
