How It Works

we set up a BSP baseline

Set Up

We set up a baseline that includes:

  • Adding your custom board into the Timesys Embedded Board Farm
  • Adding your BSP code into a private Git repo that only you and Timesys can access
  • Running a driver test
Timesys provides monthly CVE reports and reviews them quarterly


We provide monthly vulnerability reports, and on a quarterly basis we jointly review them to determine what updates and patches you want us to apply.

Timesys integrates security patches and package updates into your BSP

Integrate Patches/ Updates/Backports

We integrate security patches / package updates and backports for your BSP as per the quarterly review.

Validate BSP

Validate Custom
Linux OS

After integrating patches/updates, we validate the BSP by comparing the driver tests against the baseline.
