Security notification

  • Receive security alerts specific to components used in your application, eliminating the time spent on monitoring CVEs yourself
  • Provides you with an easy and efficient way to integrate patches into your device software, eliminating the time spent on addressing CVEs that are not applicable

Easy customization

  • Select from 2000+ packages and libraries in the LinuxLink repository (Factory) or from a whitelist of layers (Bakery / Yocto)
  • Enables you to start your project using tested BSPs based on software from mainline, semiconductors and board vendors

Commercial support
