Security and Update Management

Receive Security Notifications for your build. Apply Fixes Easily.

With the increasing rate of information-security vulnerabilities and the unpredictability of discoveries, the manual process of securing your device is not feasible. Timesys helps reduce security maintenance time and costs through its automated Security Notification and Update Management Service.

How It Works:

  1. Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) manager continuously monitors vulnerability databases and security mailing lists;
  2. Timesys Engineering adds security patches to code in its source code repositories that are used by Timesys Yocto Project Café or Factory build systems;
  3. Security Management tool in the Timesys Yocto Café or Factory build environment determines if the software components were used in your build, and
  4. Security Management tool notifies your team of the vulnerabilities unique to your builds.

Track Relevant Security Vulnerabilities for Your Build

When you buy Timesys Support and have developed a custom BSP with either Timesys Yocto Project Café or Factory build systems, you get Timesys’s BSP Security Monitoring and Update Management Service. You’ll receive regular email update notifications alerting you to updates for only the software components used in your particular configuration. The notification will include package update information and information about any relevant security patches, along with a link to the build info page from where you can click on a CVE link to find out more about it. This automated service eliminates the time spent monitoring CVE yourself.

Integrate Updates and Patches with Confidence

With the Timesys Security Update service, it’s easy to apply updates and security patches into your software, and you remain in control of what gets updated.

From the build info page, you fork the build and select the only updates you want to accept; LinuxLink does not force you to update. And by forking the build, your old configuration remains in the build history — enabling you to upgrade with confidence.
