Last month, the Zephyr Project was on-site with several sessions at the Linux Foundation’s KubeCon + CloudNativeCon + Open Source Summit China. Couldn’t make it the conference? Take a look at some of the Zephyr-related content here.
Kai Ren, a Developer Relations Manager with Bluetooth SIG, shared how Bluetooth Mesh works with Zephyr. This session presented the fundamental technical concepts of Bluetooth mesh, for example, provisioning, model, security keys, publish/subscribe, address and will introduce the key points of Bluetooth mesh implementation on Zephyr project.

Kate Stewart, Senior Director of Strategic Programs for the Linux Foundation, presented a session about Unlocking IoT Innovation with an Open Source IoT. This presentation offered a look into the community (who is building Zephyr OS and what motivates their involvement), current initiatives (LTS release, new features and expanded functionality) and a preview of the technical roadmap (pursuing functional safety certifications and expanding our developer resources).

Kate also led a session about “Developing Open Source for Safety and Security.” This talk summarized the current state of Zephyr and the project’s plans for going after Functional Safety certifications in 2019 while still handling any potential security issues. This will be contrasted with the ELISA project and how the team on ELISA is working towards new processes and tools to help Linux become certified for use in functional safety applications.

Wayne Ren, a Senior Software Engineer at Synopsys, will share “The Secure Design in Zephyr and its Implementation in Synopsys ARC Processor.” This talk presented the latest progress of Zephyr, the secure design of it, including memory protection and Trust Execution Environment. We will also discuss how the Zephyr is supported in Synopsys ARC processors. Watch the presentation below.
