An increasing number of developers need a scalable, real-time operating system designed specifically for small-footprint IoT devices. It needs to be affordable, easy to use and built with input from the developers using it. An open source RTOS can’t just be called “open” - it must live and breathe “the open source way.” Developers should have influence over the direction of the project and be able to impact its software and hardware architecture support. The OS should also maximize interconnectivity between other devices, contain powerful development tools and come with customizable capabilities. The Zephyr Project offers just that. As embedded devices become connected devices ensuring the security of these devices is critical. Zephyr Project employs an in depth security development lifecycle through all stages of development and makes security a priority for its development. This session gives a deeper look into the security integration and methodology for Zephyr™ Project and the vision of security for the project over time.
