Over-The-Air Software Updates for Connected Devices: Key Considerations
Robust and secure software updates on embedded Linux devices is complex, and doing software updates over-the-air adds to the complexity. The hardships come of course from the embedded environment which differ in many ways compared to desktop or server Linux installations, where you must handle poor mobile network connectivity, sudden power-loss and never leave a device in an unusable state (brick) when doing the update OTA. There are many examples that have gotten attention in the media, where unstable software update solutions have caused real-life problems which could have been mitigated by a robust software solution that is able to handle the corner cases that exist in the embedded environment. In this talk, we will present Mender, an Apache 2.0 licensed end-to-end software update manager. This is a deep-dive session that will cover: Mender project ecosystem Insights to technical solutions/choices Security model/approach Community We will also present some of the features that are being worked on and what lays ahead for the project.
