Securing the IoT - J On The Beach 2017

Most of the IoT devices are running a Linux distribution, but without a clear updates and/or security strategy.

In this talk we will go through some of the current problems the IoT devices are facing and tools and strategies we can use today to make the situation a bit better for new devices, while keeping our time to market optimized.

We will show some features in Linux and systemd that can help improving the security of these devices. We will also introduce snaps, a packaging format that helps distribute your application and install it isolated from the underlying system and from other applications; and Ubuntu Core, a small, transactional version of Ubuntu for IoT devices, based on snaps.
