  • Comparing and Contrasting Embedded Linux Build Systems and Distributions

    Comparing and Contrasting Embedded Linux Build Systems and Distributions Beer and Pizza will be provided. We will discuss the various options for creating embedded Linux operating systems. We will provide a basic description of each option, including an overview of the workflow for each choice. The talk will cover the advantages and disadvantages of each of these options and provide viewers with a matrix of design considerations to help them pick the right choice for their design. We will cover the following options: Yocto/OpenEmbedded Buildroot OpenWRT/LEDE Slimmed down desktop distributions (e.g. Debian, Raspbian, Ubuntu) We will also touch upon other tools, such as crosstool-ng and ucLinux, which are peripherally related to building embedded Linux systems. The focus for this section will be to make the viewers aware of these tools as they frequently come up while researching embedded Linux so that you are better informed which tools are available. This presentation will help developers understand the options for creating an embedded Linux system. They will be better equipped to decide, for their particular application, which system is appropriate. Presenter: Drew Moseley Drew Moseley is currently part of the Mender.io open source project to deploy OTA software updates to embedded Linux devices. He has worked on embedded projects such as RAID storage controllers, Direct and Network attached storage devices and graphical pagers. He has spent the last 7 years working in Operating System Professional Services helping customers develop production embedded Linux systems. He has spent his career in embedded software and developer tools and has focused on Embedded Linux and Yocto for about 10 years.

  • [Webinar] FIDO: The State of Strong Authentication

    Needs a location

    Register Now ==> https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/7513051309722868995?source=Event+Page+on+FIDO.com As data breaches and increasingly sophisticated phishing attacks continue to drive online account compromise and financial loss, organizations are finally stepping up and investing in stronger, phishing-resistant forms of authentication, according to Javelin Research’s new “The State of Strong Authentication 2019” report. But what does this mean for strong authentication holdouts? Get the answer to this question and more during this webinar on the report, featuring Al Pascual, senior vice president and research director, Javelin Strategy & Research and Andrew Shikiar, CMO, FIDO Alliance. These speakers will share analysis on the state of consumer and enterprise authentication among U.S. businesses and the role that strong authentication is playing in protecting accounts and securing access to valuable data and critical systems. Attendees will also hear: What technologies they should be considered for strong authentication, including cryptographically-backed authentication and how it differs from traditional forms of authentication like SMS OTPs The role of regulation including PSD2, GDPR and state privacy laws in driving strong authentication adoption What strong authentication holdouts should know about data protection and threats in 2019 How cryptographically-backed strong authentication has been standardized by FIDO Alliance and W3C, and is available today in browsers and mobile app platforms How Google, Tradelink and Visa are using FIDO standards to provide stronger protection for customer and employee accounts

  • Machine Vision based Industrial IoT Deployments

    4040 George Sellon Cir

    We will have two 20 minute talk in this meetup. Speakers include CEO & Co-Founder of dc-square (https://www.dc-square.de/en/) Christian Götz and Oracle VP of IoT and Big Data applications Supreet Oberoi. Talk 1 Title: Scalable IoT Messaging with MQTT Abstract: MQTT is the most popular IoT protocol for connecting devices at scale and a modern alternative for lightweigth backend (microservice) communication. This session covers everything you need to know about scalable pub/sub communication with MQTT for up to millions of devices and shows the available software options in the (open source) ecosystem. We also address the brand new features of MQTT 5 as well as advanced microservice integration topics. Speaker Bio: Christian Götz is CEO & co-founder at dc-square, the company has recently been named one of the "most innovative companies in IoT” and is enabling customers in industries like automotive, consumer goods and entertainment to connect millions of IoT devices reliable, fast and secure with their product HiveMQ. Christian is a frequent writer and speaker at regional and international events sharing his experience from 100+ IoT production deployments. He is passionate about reading, running and realizing innovative IoT solutions for companies, which impact our future. Talk 2 Title: Machine vision based Industrial IoT Deployments Abstract: In this talk, we will share our understanding of how to use Computer Vision (CV) in monitoring of industrial assets and processes. We extended our Oracle IoT applications to integrate with smart cameras such as ones from FLIR and started providing catch-all monitoring for workplace safety, pipeline monitoring, among other use cases. In addition, we integrated Matroid, which provides a no-code experience to develop and evaluate deep learning models for object recognition. With our integration with Matroid, we started providing real-time and rich analytics based on people and other object monitoring. We implemented various approaches to recognize objects in given images, convert analog meters to digital devices, count products on a factory floor or position robots based on visual feedback. Some of the approaches included building our own models with OpenCV and Tensor Flow libraries. Others involved integrating with third-party tools such as Matroid. We will conclude with an evaluation of their strengths and limitations we found with each approach. BIO ~~~ Supreet currently serves as the VP of IoT and Big Data Applications at Oracle, where he is responsible for field engineering, developing partnerships and reference architectures. Prior to this, at American Express, Supreet developed the Hadoop platform from infancy, creating a platform for data asset management, implementing several use cases around recommendation, fraud, and compliance. Prior to American Express, as Vice President of Engineering for RTI, Supreet developed real-time middleware for helping create IoT systems-of-systems . He is also the Lead Mentor for startX, a Stanford start-up accelerator. Supreet holds MS in Computer Sciences from Stanford University and BS with Highest Honors from University of Texas at Austin.

  • IoT Application Prototyping with Debian and BeagleBone

    Topic: In this meetup, we will discuss using the Debian distribution and the BeagleBone hardware platform to implement an IoT application. Specifically, the use of MQTT to implement a weather station application will be demonstrated and the code will be available to all attendees. We will discuss initial prototyping on your desktop Linux installation as well as issues you will need to address when migrating the code to the BeagleBone. Finally, we will touch briefly on the differences between prototype and production environments and detail some of the considerations and choices that will need to be made when moving beyond the prototyping phase.
