Ensuring Data Integrity Using Blockchain With Toradex Torizon

Status: Available Now

The blockchain has seen explosive growth in the past few years, especially with the advent of cryptocurrency. The blockchain has also become popular in the IoT space, as a mechanism to verify the integrity of data collected by sensor nodes. In this presentation, Mohammed provides an overview of the blockchain and its different uses and applications in the IoT. He also provides a demonstration on a Toradex SoM and carrier board running Torizon which implements a simple blockchain solution. In this example, data is collected on the device and added to the blockchain. Finally, the integrity of the data on the blockchain is verified.

Hawkbit and SWUpdate for OTA Updates of Linux IoT Devices (2020)

Status: Available Now

Linux-based IoT devices don't have a flat Flash structure that allows for a straightforward OTA update process. There are a multitude of bootloader, kernel, and root file system combinations that must be taken into consideration, along with the different failure modes. The combination of Hawkbit and SWUpdate aim to standardize the OTA update process for IoT devices running Linux. This session will provide an overview of Hawkbit and SWUpdate, the different components that can be updated, and the different failure modes that are supported. A case study will be presented to demonstrate how to set up Hawkbit and SWUpdate to support OTA updates for a Linux-based IoT device. Finally, ongoing work by the presenter to address current shortcomings will be discussed.
