Open Source Summit North America (Vancouver, Canada)

May 10, 2023 - May 12, 2023

Open Source Summit is the premier event for open source developers, technologists, and community leaders to collaborate, share information, solve problems, and gain knowledge, furthering open source innovation and ensuring a sustainable open source ecosystem. It is the gathering place for open-source code and community contributors. Join us for the Open Source Summit North America, hosted in Vancouver, Canada, and virtually on May 10-12.

ELISA will be represented in a few presentations including:

Wednesday, May 10 at 11:10 – 11:50 am: How Do You Know You’re Done – After a Security Fix? – Kate Stewart, The Linux Foundation & Peter Brink, UL Solutions

Requirements are at the heart of designing a system with safety considerations. When building the system, having a detailed and accurate record of all the components and build information is necessary for safety analysis. When a component vulnerability fix comes in though, how do you know the system conforms with the safety claims after applying the fix? This talk will go into some approaches for leveraging the SBOM data to improve the automation and confidence in the analysis necessary to know you’re done. Add this to your schedule here.

Looking at system architectures for complex safety-critical systems, similarities can be observed across various industries. Beside a rich OS (such as Linux), typically an RTOS and virtualization or containers are involved. However, when it comes to prototyping such systems, the existing guidelines are limited and reproducing demos is hard and time consuming. Compared to traditional (safety-critical) systems, created by strictly following the v-model, existing open source software can boost the system creation & understanding by fast and iterative prototyping. The ELISA project’s systems working group focuses on creating such an exemplary system architecture using Linux, Xen and Zephyr in a reproducible form. This includes step-by-step documentation for users on different expert levels and various entry points to approach these systems. It also includes picking up new requirements such as a system SBOM and a strong interaction as well as collaboration with other open source projects. Beside the state of the previously mentioned activities, the talk highlights other ELISA working groups focusing on Linux Kernel, processes, tools, and use cases. A basic understanding about challenges and chances of using open-source projects for safety-critical workloads rounds up the talk. Add this to your schedule here.
