Meet Canonical at IoT Tech Expo

Santa Clara, USA October 5-6 2022

IoT Tech Expo is almost here! With 250+ speakers, 5,000+ attendees and dozens of sessions dedicated to IoT in the enterprise and transformational IoT and 5G, it will be an impactful gathering. Join Canonical there to discuss our IoT solutions with our experts on-site.

Learn about Linux security

Linux has found wide adoption in IoT, but traditional Linux distributions weren’t made for this use case. Nathan Hart, Product Manager at Canonical will give a talk about the challenges of using a traditional Linux in IoT and how Canonical keeps IoT devices secure. In this session, attendees will learn about:

  • The vulnerabilities of traditional Linux systems in IoT
  • How traditional security approaches are not designed with IoT in mind
  • How low connectivity and low physical access create additional challenges

Title: Is Linux sufficiently secure for IoT?

Speaker: Nathan Hart, Product Manager at Canonical 

Session time: 15:20 – 15:30 PDT

Track: Transformational IoT & 5G

Experience innovation

At booth 204, we’ll be showcasing some of our IoT technologies. Stop by to talk to us and to see Ubuntu Core, Canonical’s embedded Linux, in action! You’ll hear about benefits and use cases like:

Real-time data analysis in an edge AI device: How do businesses read and manage real-time data produced by their remote devices in the field? We’ll be showing a demonstration of Ubuntu Core as a platform for edge AI/ML using live sensor data.

Reliable operation for long life: Ubuntu Core’s built-in security is not limited to the OS layer via bug fixes and CVE patches. Every application on top of Ubuntu Core sits in a secure, sandboxed environment. Furthermore, Canonical maintains Ubuntu Core throughout devices’ lifetime. Industrial manufacturers receive a decade of ultra-reliable software updates on their low-powered, inaccessible, and often remotely administered embedded devices in the field. 

By using an OS designed for utmost reliability and optimised for security, world-leading suppliers and manufacturers are free to concentrate their efforts and redirect resources towards their value-add activities.
