As embedded devices become connected devices, cloud native development practices challenge traditional development models. Prioritizing application portability over hardware-dependent code has become a necessity to efficiently scale deployments across multiple devices.
The Yocto project is at the forefront of this change, providing a flexible toolset, used by developers to create a custom Linux-based system regardless of product hardware architecture. And now, with the introduction of Parsec, Yocto project picks up a new tool that provides a common security API that works with any root of trust. Parsec is an open source CNCF project that has been in development for over 2 years to provide a secure cloud native experience for Edge and IoT devices.
In the April release of Yocto project, also known as the HardKnott release, you find recipes for Parsec service with Mbed-Crypto, PKCS11, and TPM providers as well as the Parsec tools. This means that you can now code against Parsec APIs to manage keys or to perform crypto operations while leveraging the root of trust of your system.
Join Paul Howard and Anton Antovov at the Yocto Virtual Summit – May 26 @ 3:50 BST to discover how to take advantage of this new toolset to simplify security with Yocto projects and Parsec.
