Life's too short to be running “dd” on sd cards all day. The Aktualizr project includes a new tool called aktualizr-lite that can handle secure OSTree updates in a highly scalable manner. Aktualizr is great project implementing the Automotive industry’s Uptane specification. Many use cases don’t require the full Uptane specification and really only need secure updates that can be verified using TUF. aktualizr-lite is the tool that makes this possible.

By using OSTree updates embedded devices can be managed without constant reformatting of sd cards and developing complex test automation systems with things likes sd muxes and emulators. The end result is something users enjoy, testers and CI can rely on, and developers can trust.

This talk will discuss what OSTree is, how it can be incorporated into Open Embedded, and how Aktualizr can handle updates.
