(VIRTUAL) Securing a Yocto-based Distribution: The Case of an All Scenarios OS - Marta Rybczynska

Yocto is a popular framework for building Linux embedded distributions. It offers a number of security features in layers like meta-security and meta-selinux. However, properly configuring such a distribution is not an easy task. In this talk Marta is presenting the effort needed to secure a Yocto-based distribution using examples from the process of building security foundations of AllScenariosOS. The examples include configuration of appropriate layers, but also additional features that we found missing. Among other things, the talk discusses the CVE vulnerability scanning, hardening of the Linux kernel and applications, using automated scanners and configuring the system defaults.
