Secure boot is an important link in the chain of security for PCs. But embedded devices based on a Linux® operating environment are equally compromised if a rogue Linux image is permitted to run on them.
While hackers had their sights on IT, embedded devices for the most part were spared. Until recently. Hackers have begun targeted more traditional embedded platforms. Ironically like in IT, fame is the initial motivator but before long financial gain and outright destruction will most likely be the end game.
5G will be characterized by a much higher flexibility and programmability for all non-radio network segments including SDN, NFV and IoT. Container technology especially Docker™ with MV CGX Linux offers opportunities to next generation network developers.
MontaVista Linux Carrier Grade Edition (CGE) provides a Linux-based programming environment that can scale from high-performance “bare metal” dedicated spaces, to an RTOS-like multi-threaded run-time, up to a fully virtualized Linux SMP process model.
Migrating code to a latest version of the system software is a daunting task, even in the best case. Migrating from a legacy (usually closed source)Real Time OS to LinuxTM is arguably much moredifficult. Or is it? This paper brings out the challenges and benefits of such a move!
Smart, inter-connected devices are chaining worldwide networks into configurable services. However, this new avenue is prone to security and trust challenges, leaving the chain as good as its weakest link.
Next generation networks are characterized by a much higher native flexibility and programmability for all non-radio network segments including SDN, NFV and IoT Networks. MontaVista continues to participate in the way networks are created and behave by providing necessary software, tools and support to help reduce Capex and improve Opex.
