Yocto Project new features survey

Yocto Project can nowadays be considered the ‘de facto’ standard among the automated generation systems of embedded linux distributions.
Experienced users appreciate the features offered by Yocto Project and its complete customization that allows to adapt it to any specific requirement.
However, from the beginner’s point of view, the situation is a bit more complicated due to the Yocto Project’s particularly steep learning curve.
The tools that can support the development with Yocto Project are Toaster, that allow the configuration of the builds through a web interface, and the ‘extended SDK’ (eSDK), based on Devtool which allows the system to be tuned or extended without editing configuration files.

Secure Boot and Chain of Trust

Ensure your device is not running tampered software by verifying its authenticity before execution. Establish software authenticity all the way from the bootloader to user applications. Our secure boot services help implement:

Verified bootloader (NXP i.MX / QorIQ, Qualcomm Snapdragon, TI Sitara, Atmel SAMA5, Xilinx Zynq and more)
Kernel verification (FIT image, SoC specific mechanisms)
Root filesystem verification (dm-verity, IMA/EVM, FIT image)
Filesystem cryptography, Filesystem-level encryption (dm-crypt)
