The recent Linaro IoT reference design we have assembled is a system that covers most components of the IoT use-case from the edge to the Cloud.  The platform includes PKI infrastructure, secure boot and encrypted Firmware-Over-The-Air (FOTA) updates.  Extended to an open source automotive platform, this would offer secure boot to a hypervisor-enabled RTOS platform alongside one or more Linux environments using container technology.

However, working to build an open platform for FOTA is not simply a one-time development activity.  The effort requires constant and continual participation within the community including enabling continuous integration against multiple software trees, and frequent conference hallway discussions; working to build an upstream platform takes a lot of energy.  In thís presentation we'll provide a glimpse of how we have done it with our most recent IoT platform and why it makes sense to build a similar platform for OTA within automotive.

Who are we? Linaro is a collaborative engineering organization that is focused on enabling open source software on ARM technology.  Within Linaro Technologies, Alan Bennett, leads a small team of open source experts working to produce end-to-end platforms for a variety of embedded use-cases.

Static devices are being hacked and hijacked almost every day. It's time that we all come together and design open, update strategies to meet all of our use-cases and needs.
