Meeting the Challenge of OTA for Embedded Linux Systems

In this webinar we look at the challenges of managing the process of updating software on embedded Linux systems remotely – often referred to as an Over The Air or OTA update.

The Webinar will cover:
  • The necessity and challenges of updating devices in the field
  • Security issues when dealing with remote device updates
  • The importance of a robust implementation
  • Additional security measures required for OTA
  • Adding an OTA mechanism to an embedded Linux build system, like Yocto

Toradex demonstrates how this challenge can be solved in a real world example, using the Torizon Platform on hardware featuring NXP i.MX Applications Processors.

Webinar agenda:
  • Common OTA features
  • Types of OTA - package based, image based
  • Challenges of OTA - power-cut tolerance, rollbacks security
  • Integrating with a build system
  • Open Source solutions for OTA
  • A Toradex solution

Note: The video recording of the webinar will be made available here shortly.
